Many commented, also rated, and gave the impression that Windows 8 or 8.1 is not an improvement over Windows 7, I personally do not agree with that assessment.
Their assessment may be the result of interacting with the Metro user interface that Windows 8 brings, which indeed seems difficult to control for a traditional Start menu user and the results take hours to understand and then conquer. So they decided to update Windows 10 immediately to enjoy the greatness of the latest and latest version of Microsoft.
However, many parties also gave a positive impression stating that Windows 8 delivers great performance compared to previous versions of Windows.
One of the strengths is the streamlining of startup time which is the most obvious thing to feel, besides the amazing pleasure for touch screen computer users, using Windows 8 / 8.1 (let alone Windows 10) will maximize the use of their hardware.
