Reviews

from completed build The Global Offensive

Windows 8.1 adds extra speed and efficiency for gaming and provides everything I need. Still waiting for Windows 10 though.

from completed build What is Sunlight

Runs Great Quick install time for me

from completed build First Gaming Build

An excellent OS for gaming. Switching from Windows 7 I was skeptical of course, but I don't regret it. I used a program to revive the start menu, and I simply ignore the Metro screen. I get genuinely uncomfortable thinking of it. Watch out for drivers, though. Some devices (such as certain wireless cards) don't have drivers for Win 8.1, which is a simple fix however. Other problems include the charms bar and options menus that slide in (network interface) or others that pop up, (volume controls) creating an inconsistent experience.

from completed build Bertha And Perkins

I originally hated it, but its growing on me. It is quite snappy. And the tile system is easily bypassed. System settings are well organized.
