Do you see any benefit to windows 8 over windows 7?

hmmmm - not really so far. Task Manager is nicer...

I sort of like the Metro interface, having your apps on a pop up screen you can open with one click.

Other than that, it's windows 7 with lipstick.

More like a big boobjob.

* Much faster text Rendering
* Hyper-V rocks Finally also on Client.
* Storage pools. Great.

Lot of under the hood Advantages. Moved all my Servers over except some virtual machiens that insist on 2008R2 (TMG mostly - my Firewall). Never looked back

Cloning HDD to SSD

I have used AEOMI Patition Assistant for cloning to use Samsung 120GB SSD840 as System partittion (65GB) and Documents partition for strictly for Ninja(45GB). For me EASEUS didn't clone correctly.
However AEOMI's migrate OS to SSD ( difffernt drive) worked perfectly.


Here is AEOMI link:

My initial review of Windows 8 was I liked it. But after using it a few months I really kind of hate it. Metro Apps are worthless on a anything other than a phone or tablet so I really just use it like Windows 7 but it has quite a few annoying things even on desktop part of the interface that get in the way more than help. My recommendation is if you are on Windows 7 stay on Windows 7

I use some programs to make things more like windows 7. But kind of dumb to buy windows 8 then use software to make like windows 7 by removing some of the irritations. I think Microsoft really messed up by not allowing irritating things to be turned off without third party software.

Sorry for overuse of the word irritation but I am not kidding there are some real irritants in windows 8.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

Actually you can make Windows 8 look like Windows 2000 (best UI ever ;-)) by modifying WindowsMetrics key and Fonts key.
I can detail more if interested.

Left: W8 with ClearType
Middle : W8 without Cleartype
Right : W8 with WindowsMetrics and Fonts keys modified .
