God so many idiots commenting. I'm playing battlefield 3, mass effect 2, dota, fifa 2013 and all my games perfectly on my alienware m17x running windows 8 pro. Everything from windows 7 still work and better because they use less ram. I can play four games at a time instead of three because it makes better use of my 4gb of ram. Mouse and keyboard still work. Full screen is for windows 8 apps. Use the thing before you post these damn stupid comments. Gosh. There is nothing you cannot do in windows 8 that you never did in 7. Windows 7 was made for touch screen too. Windows 8 is just an improved version of 7 that is more ram efficient. Before my sims3 deluxe pack with all the updates used to eat up 3gb of my 4gb ram. Now it hovers just above 2gb in windows 8. Dont be stupid. Again. If you still use xp your opinion is irrelevent

I really don't understand how people are not liking Windows 8. I personally love the performance of it on my Sony VAIO laptop which shipped with Windows 7. The "Modern" UI is actually pretty cool. Another thing, it's also OPTIONAL. In all honestly, since I spend most of my time in the Desktop, Windows 8 feels like Windows 7 to me. The only difference is that the Start Screen replaces the Start Button.

Since Windows 8 is going to be on new computers it will sell . there are programs/ apps to get the Start button back and programs and app to help a person go directly to the desktop and skip the Modern UI AKA start screen. I have upgraded to window 8 PRO and find it OK. To me the Modrn UI AKA Metro start screen is just an additional Windows screen I can use from time to time. I do not let it bug me I use it to my advantage
