Windows 8 is very different then windows 7. I didn't like it at first, but once I started to learn how to use it, I don't mind. One thing I didn't like is that they make everything too easy to get to, which meant many submenus for the same thing in different places. The wifi was a little slow, until I plugged it into the server, but that might just be my computer, HP ENVY m6. Though I am having a problem with popups while I'm on the intranet, that is what I like about Macs, no popups, and those that are, are very limited. But I think that over all the Windows eight program is good, though I think I need a little more time to work it out.
