6 Reasons to Love Windows 8

Windows 8.x – Stand By Your Man
I have received many criticisms for my pro-Win8 stance over the past few months. Many are telling me that my position is unwarranted and that Win8.whatever simply sucks. Well, I’m going to take a stab at bolstering my position with the following defense…
I know I go on about the wonderful benefits that Windows 8.x offers, but I have good reasons for this. It is, simply put, a better system.
I will rave about this until one of two things happen. Either I run out of steam, or my readers will out-number me both in stamina and strength. I suspect the latter will show true force in the end.
Point 1. It’s Faster
When I was running Windows 7 as my main operating system, it generally took a minute or two to get to the desktop. That was with the very same Sold State Drive (SSD) I am using today.
My current boot time, from hitting the Power Button to a usable desktop is roughly 17 seconds. I think that is an admirable improvement.
Point 2. Everything That Runs On Win7 Runs On Win8
When I was running Win7, I had all sorts of games and other demanding programs that needed attention. There is not a single one that I own that does not run perfectly, and better, in the Windows 8.x environment.
That includes drivers. Windows 8.x has never once given me a hiccup when it came to drivers. And they are generally a big issue where operating systems are concerned. That is not to say they don’t exist. I simply have yet to find one.
