    All these Windows 8 writeups on the Windows Club and there really are not many responses at all. To tell you the truth, I seriously think people do not care about Windows 8, myself included. Yet day after day the Windows Club continues with posts about it. It’s getting a little mundane, time to look for a new place to surf.

  2. Hi Ed, Along with articles on the existing versions (Windows 7), The Windows Club will also post articles about the newer releases of the Windows OS (Windows 8), as and when news about the new version is released. And not just Windows OS – but TWC also covers any topics which we think may interest a Windows user – like for instance the recent posts on SkyDrive/Google Drive, etc. Cheers. 🙂

    Hi Ed, The Windows Club tries to cover wide range of articles interetsed to its readers. As Windows 8 is just been readying its release, many of its users have installed its CP ver and wants to know more about it.Also there are many articles related to other Windows ver too. Many Windows 7 related articles are also being covered. BTW which topics, what kind of articles are you more interested in? We will look in to it!

    All I’m saying is that judging by all the negative responses that I see here about Windows 8, looks to me that no one could care less about Windows 8, so why not post articles about what people DO care about still and that is Windows 7.

    I do not know if The Windows Club is endorsed by Microsoft or not but most of us feel like Windows 8 is being crammed down our throats. They ask us to test this OS for them and give them our feedback and we do, but they don’t listen to the feedback because if they did listen to it the metro ui would be gone. I can just look at that metro ui and see 90% crap, things the average user would never use but is there like the magazine rack at a supermarket check out isle to work on peoples impulses.

    So now what they are doing is changing all their cloud services so people will have to use 8 like it or not because they know the general public is sickened by this OS but basically they are stuck with it so why not cram it in everyones face and act like Joe public loves it!

    I’d really like to see a poll here to see what your members think of 8 in general, I am sure you will be surprised, I know I wouldn’t.

    What I suggest is try Windows 8 on any Tablet when it comes ! I think you may like it !I can’t force my opinion but on a Tablet the experience will be different !

    No, I dont think Windows Live apps for previous ver of Windows will be dropped. It’ll be there for Windows 7. For Windows 8 there approach will be different and will be better.

  8. This is one of my favorite sites (though I comment rarely).

  9. I’m using 8 on my HTPC/main gaming rig, and I love it.

    Perhaps Ed doesn’t understand how it works. (Microsoft should not have split Metro from Desktop conceptually — it doesn’t make sense that all of our previous Windows experience is now stuffed into one Metro app. Either Metro apps should allow windowing them, or all legacy apps should be run full-screen (with the Desktop app being a place to play with files).)

    Once you realize that the Start button has been replaced with the Start screen icon in the same spot — and that the Start screen is just the Start Menu on steroids (it’s much quicker and more functional) — it all makes sense ….

    If you have a tablet, great.

    If you have a touchpad like the Logitech T650, wonderful.

    If you have a touchscreen (even one made for Windows 7), that’s good, too.

    If you’re using mouse and keyboard, just remember that with a mouse, move the cursor into any corner, and right-click is your friend.

    With a keyboard, shortcuts are king: the Win key gets you to your previous app/program (start typing at the Start screen to find apps/programs, settings, and files right away), Win + X brings up a useful menu, and Alt + Tab switches between all apps/programs.
