    yes, it was terrible to use with a mouse as it is a UI for touchscreens - and within ten years there will be daily threads about how much soul it had and hordes of autistic linuxites will configure their DEs to look just like that

      objectively wrong
      start screen is superior to a start menu

        I don't need the local alphabetical index of only what's installed because the explorer gets me what I need. The start screen offers much less and still harder to make useful than the obsolete start menu.

        Kill them both, open to the desktop or the file explorer and keep the simple button that swaps between them. At this point however Microsoft wants to kill everything to replace it with a small gpt prompt on a static screen that feeds everything to the government.

    On tablets it was great, if you only used desktop programs. On desktops and laptops it was also pretty usable after you got used to it.
    Also it was much more stable than 10 and had basically no ads

    yep, it was shitty af, was good for lil tablet but for a frickin laptop or desktop it was a nightmare to use for non-touchscreen devices, ppl keep telling it was stable
    THEY SHOULD SHUT THE FRICK UP, it was slow as hell on my laptop (windows 8 manufacture-installed on it) and then when I upgrade to windows it's "magically" faster, frick it, still I loved the design for touchscreen device but we hqd windows phone for that

      I have used older windows all my life and I was gifted a windows 11 laptop a year ago. Nothing wrong with windows 11 to me, despite being resistant to change all my life and in general not liking new technology. Only thing I should have done was NOT put anything in the folders that went onto my Onedrive automatically, that was a huge mistake as a youtuber. And putting film on the 100gb c drive instead of the 931gb d drive... Yep didn't think that through but it's been about a decade since I got a new computer so I wasn't even thinking about features like this was a possibility.

    Yes, each version of windows rewrites the definition of terrible. Such innovation. They constantly discover new and novel ways of making windows even worse, in ways not previously even imaginable.

    it was bad but usable. ironically they perfected the start menu with windows 10 but suddenly regressed it with 11 and also removed a bunch of features for no reason.

    Nah, I learned to like it. (Although I've never had to use windows 8 without classic shell.)
    Having a screen for all of your (un)commonly used programs separate from your desktop was Nice. The 10 start menu should be an objective improvement, but idk I still liked having an entire screen for that.

      You know you can there's an option to use the Windows 10 Start menu as full-screen, so its just like Windows 8, right?

    8 was dogshit. 8.1 was a big improvement due to a) restored desktop Start button and b) more variety in Start screen tile colours

    Haters gonna hate but 8.1 was the best Windows ever released. Simple, clean and modern looking interface. No apps. Extremely light and fast. Start menu was weird but you could always just press Win key and start typing to find shit.

    I liked it on Microsoft Surface for Windows 8 Pro. I feel like they should have kept the start screen as an option for tablet PCs, and a classic style start menu as default. The in-between we have now is abysmal.

      Even on tablets the UI is absolutely useless and trash if you're not a spit gurgling moron primitive that's only just learning to use a computer in the 21st century. They went with big pictographs because they were targeting actual cavemen, and had these cavemen design it.
      They've got enough precision that you can use the normal gui and get things done decently enough with the virtual keyboard, though not ideal. Even you're using the tablet, you've probably got a keyboard attachment.

    I remember when W8 came out, the only way to shut down was through that "charms" shit, had no luck teaching my elderly mother at the time
    I had to pin a shortcut to a shutdown script on the metro UI and desktop

    W8 had the prettiest window decoration of any windows version imo
