I like it. It takes a little getting used to

I had XP which was great and I was fortunate enough to miss out on Vista.

I had XP, Vista upgraded to Win 7, and now a new Windows 8.1 to replace my 10 year old XP laptop. 8.1 took me about a month to find all the features. I bought the Windows 8.1 for Dummies book. It has been very helpful.

Overall I like 8.1

Equator?? I'm a long way north of the equator. I just finished mowing my lawn, it's 73 degrees F here in the desert.

I'd like to add tiles around HAL (as in the movie) that are a digital clock (with associated features) and links to things I commonly use. Sort of like this:

Well, if you listen to the *ix guys or the "I want to keep Windows XP" guys, it sucks.

I just got 8.1 up and running last weekend and love it. I bought 8 for $39 last spring and then just loaded it. Been running Win 7 for about 4 years. Upgrade to 8 went well, a bit of trouble getting 8.1 loaded via the App Store. If you don't have 8 already, buy 8.1.

I am finding it more and more seamless from a Win 7 perspective. Yes, there isn't a "desktop" at start or a "start menu" but I am easily finding replacements. And for those apps that do not run in Metro UI mode I can easily switch with Alt-Tab.
