5.0 out of 5 stars Windows 8 pro upgrade review, November 4, 2012
By 
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Pro - Upgrade [Old Version] (Software)
I really thought this OS was gonna suck cause of the beta. The beta was just horrid for me, but i bought the upgrade cause it was 15 bucks. Now I have bought 2 licenses. This release is a whole lot better than the beta.

I give it 5 stars cause

-it's noticeably faster than win 7 when booting and shutting down
-some apps launch faster
-metro is nice if you need it
-metro can be bypassed and start button added with the free program "Classic start menu."
-No driver issues as of yet

It feels like a snappy windows 7 with some navigational changes. Just remember to set programs to compatibility mode of your choice if they are acting up. People with 4 cores and up will love this OS. So far so good. a lot of my programs launch faster. Battlefield 3 lagged but set it in windows 7 compatibility mode and now is running fine. will update if anything significant happens.
