yes, Win8 is faster. It is what I've expected from Windows 7.

But the fasted OS is useless if it has an unusable UI like Windows 8 has.


I agree, Metro is an awful desktop UI. Have you tried Classic Shell & FxxkMetro?

    XP was my idea. 3rd party apps make NT6 my idea.

Classic Event Viewer works on Windows 8 too and is extremely fast. :) Although I have ruled out using the Windows 8 GUI abomination full-time ever. Just evaluating it.

Windows 8 startup unless you hold down Shift when doing a shutdown is just resume-from-hibernate and then log in, whereas Windows 7 "startup" is always shutdown+boot again unless you hibernate. I mostly always hibernate so resume from hibernation is only slightly faster on Windows 8 than 7. IMHO it is not fair to compare Windows 8 startup with Windows 7 startup. Compare the resume for hibernation times or 8's "startup" with 7's resume from hibernate.

Impossible to run NT6 without third party fixes.

xpclient,

Huh -- I didn't realize that! So, if your Win8 has gotten sluggish, then simply shutting down won't help, as it will only resume from hibernation into the same borked session. So it's misleading when we read all these claims about how much faster Win8 is at booting up. (Wonder if some of the people who are touting Win8's bootup time even realize what's going on.)

Nice find.
