(by Dan Durkee, Oct 15) I'm am sure you have read and heard the many negative and positive comments about using Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. As the OS giant, it has been easy to pick on Microsoft. At times, they have deserved it, releasing software before all of the bugs got worked out. In Microsoft's defense, releasing software early seems to be a trend among many manufacturers (think IOS 7 and the immediate IOS 7 patch). Microsoft does not need me to defend it's software release practice so instead I will focus this little review on just one aspect of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 - the Windows Start Menu.
I have been using Windows 8 for most of the summer and I upgraded to Windows 8.1 on October 11. I find the interface fairly easy to use and user friendly. My suggestion though, is to the new tools as intended and do not try to make it work like Windows 7. One of the biggest issues I heard from talking with folks over the summer is that Microsoft needs to bring that Start button back. Thankfully, Windows 8.1 brought the Start Menu back.
In truth, it is not really a Start Menu, it is more of a toggle switch between the desktop view and the tile view (think app shortcuts). A left click switches between views and a right click gets you access to many of the configuration tools that made the traditional Start menu very appealing and useful.
In my opinion, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 are ready for use. The experience is greatly enhanced with a touchscreen so if you make the move to Windows 8.1 consider changing screens and keeping in touch.
