        If you're still on 7 today, you don't have a brain.

    Nobody hated 8.1
    Boomers hated Windows 8 for it's UI.
    Nobody cared about 8.1 it was the least controversial windows version till this date.

      hated Windows 8 for it's UI.
      I hated W8 for it's UI then
      I hated W8.1 for it's UI then
      I hate W8.1 for it's UI now
      I thought for certain they'd recognize that Metro was pants-on-head retarded and bring back the classic interface. Nope, they doubled down with W10, and added spyware and aggressive force-updates to boot. This is what got me off my lazy ass and made me switch to Linux, unironically, I realized that all the shit I couldn't fucking stand in Windows was here permanently and only ever going to get worse.

        Windows 8 UI (metro start menu) triggered many.

      Wasn't 8.1 the same as 8 but with a start menu? I never bothered with either, there was no need for me to updoot. I went from 7 to 10

        No, but a start button and automatically brings you to the desktop which windows 8 didn't do.

          Someone, in some other thread, people are musing over your odd obsession with apple computer stickers.

    If the rumors of Windows 12 being subscription based are true then you're gonna beg for Windows 8 or hell even Vista or 2000 back

      Rumors are likely true, come on, we had them since 2020 for Win10.
      But then again, there are enterprise customers out here. 30 yo boomers who are unwilling to switch to Linux may just pirate.

    I used windows 8 on laptops that came with it, but I updated to the free windows 10 when I could.
    It worked, but I still preferred windows 7 on my pcs and I don't think I ever used it on more than one laptop.

    That was the last version of windows I've used. The first was 95.
    I'm not glad windows is dead, but I'm glad that it's gone.

      I like the original idea of using all the space available, but they dun goof'd by implementing gigantic colored whitespaces everywhere.

      Probably thought about how much they could charge for ad space if they used the full screen instead of a tiny popup.
