well I've had the mack for a while and though it starts instantly which is a perk ,I HATE APPS having to buy apps that don't work or are written by children or for children.
And though they say they are free that's a lie .
It's called bait and switch folks.
Yes this portion of a program is free, but you have to buy this special soft ware to use it. Which doesn't work on any thing else.
Spell check is embarrassing too .
Some times the auto correction is an other word that is completely wrong, and if you don't catch it the meaning is twisted.
I know that I have read things through before posting , but after posting and I happen to read it again letters are missing and I have to edit ,edit ,edit,
I miss the windows 7.
Can I have her back??
Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 are nearly identical.

That's like saying that the Prius is one of the main reasons you started studying for your CDL. It makes no sense. Windows 8.x is a desktop OS. Red Hat is not.

Red Hat is Linux. And Linux is what? a OS.

But at least the 2 laptops have decent specs for under $800.

No it's not. Just did an order for 40 Laptops from HP for a business. All had Win7Pro.

I could have phrased that better. Red Hat is not in the same space as Windows 8/8.1. It's an enterprise level OS for commercial applications. It makes little sense to talk about Windows 8/8.1 inspiring you [generally speaking] to get certified Red Hat.

Talk about Ubuntu, Mint... even Fedora, Ok. Red Hat?

Default "MICROSOFT: This Is Our Newest Plan To Get People To Love Our Controversial Windows 8 Design"

are you kidding?

"To put it mildly, the Windows 8 design has been controversial.

Instead of a traditional PC desktop user interface, Windows 8 uses Microsoft's mobile design, which has tiles for applications.

Windows Phone, which first used the tile look, is a relative failure. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, Windows 8 for desktop computers, which uses the same design, has not been a hit."

Microsoft executive Joe Belfiore: "It is a unique differentiator. I love tiles, I am exited about them."

"unique" = that means different

No wonder why Windows 7 has been selling at my computer store...Microsoft should start phasing out WIndows 8 and bring back 7.
