    What you’re not pointing out is that in order to utilize Windows Media Center in Windows 8 that you have to upgrade to the “pro pack” (which costs $99.99) AND buy the Windows Media Center (another $9.99).

    Personally, I thought that this was a major downgrade from Windows 7 where the media center was included and was disappointed when I found out that Windows 8 didn’t have it. I felt bad enough that I sent the lap top that I had just bought back and am looking into either a MAC or possibly something that runs Google Chrome.

    While I did have that laptop, I played around with Windows 8 and found it confusing and not very intuitive….definitely less efficient for the tasks that I use a laptop of a desktop for.

    Lastly, I have to say that I was EXTREMELY disappointed by the lack of customer service when I contacted Microsoft! I realize that they are the 10,000 pound gorilla when it comes to operating systems, but their response has me looking into different options and hoping that I find one so that I can tell Microsoft to pound salt! Google docs is also looking like a viable alternative to Microsoft Office!
