Thread Name: Tech: Latest Windows 8 Update (& Win 8.1)
Subject: RE: Tech: Latest Windows 8 Update (& Win 8.1)
I am sort of happy with 8.1, EXCEPT for speed. I use a modern Acer notebook with adequate processor and memory, but it is slower than Windows XP was on a several-years-old computer. And my wife thinks my computer is fast compared with hers. (She has a new Acer All-in-one, also with adequate processor and memory.) She is not happy with 8.1.

I am basically happy now that I've worked out how the filing system is structured, but more speed would be useful. Also, some software which claims Windows 8 compatibility isn't, and changing it to run as compatible with earlier versions does not always help.
