Windows 8 System Builder is for pre-installation on a new personal computer or installation on a computer that is not currently running Windows 7, Vista, or XP.  This product is not an upgrade and does not provide solutions to help you keep personal settings or files as the product is installed.  Windows 8 System Builder DVD 64-Bit can be installed on personal computers with a 64 bit capable processor.

The new Windows 8 start screen is your personalized home for items you use the most and can be customized according to your user preferences. Windows 8 Live tiles provide real-time updates from your Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail accounts. Along with the new Start screen, the lock screen now includes e-mail, calendar, and clock widgets.

To access your PC, Microsoft has replaced a standard PIN or password with a swipe gesture; unlock your PC by clicking or swiping preset locations you’ve selected on the lock screen. New functions also allow you to search for your favorite software programs, open, close, hide, resize, or run multiple apps simultaneously with the swipe of a finger or a swipe of the mouse.

Windows has also made changes to make your PC more secure by boosting its existing security features and adding “SmartScreen,” which acts to prevent suspicious programs or apps from being installed or running on your machine. Finally, Windows 8 also gives you the ability to “refresh” itself to give users a new starting point and a cleaner version of Windows.

New Tech and New Look, for Hardware New and Old The “System Builder” discs of Windows 8 are named this way because they are a full install and not an upgrade. The assumption is that you are building your own machine and looking to put Windows 8 on a from-scratch install, but this is still a multi-boot friendly OS and if your intention instead is to install a full copy of Windows 8 without upgrading your current system, well, that works too: you can put this on old hardware so long as your machine meets the system requirements. There has been some confusion at the lack of an ‘OEM’ SKU for Windows, so I suspect that until we hear otherwise, this is our ‘OEM’ substitute for those of us who like to tinker with hardware.If you’re considering Windows 8, there are benefits many small and large. The patchwork way in which the OS seems to meld old into new can be confusing, and it’s clear the UI pays lip service to mice while eagerly awaiting your first touch-screen or touch-pad purchase. But to give credit where credit is…

Two worlds collide, and it isn’t pretty… Okay, I’ve been a windows user since 3.0, and before that I used MS DOS and IBM DOS. I’ve also occasionally used MAC and OSX. I use multiple android devices as well, but back in the day I used Palm, and even Palm WebOs.Microsoft created a big mistake. They tried to merge a desktop operating system with a portable device operating system. While the attempt was well meaning, it falls short because it confuses the consumer.Half the settings in Windows 8 are in the new Metro Windows 8 touch interface, while other settings are in a standard desktop windows environment. If you want to configure Bluetooth devices you go to the Metro Windows 8 page, but if you want to add a Bluetooth device, you have to go into the old desktop windows interface. Many things in windows are like this. It is confusing. After 6 months with windows 8, I still cannot find my way around.Wireless networking happens in much the same way. The problem is compounded in that…

Unmitigated garbage I’ve been using computers since a wee lad of 8 years old, starting back in fall of 1980. Timex-Sinclair, TRS-80, Commodore (64, 64c, 128, and various Amigas), assorted flavors of Apple II and Mac, and PC after PC after PC, etc.I’ve owned a computer of one type or another consistently for the last 28 years.Literally. 28 years of computer ownership, with no interruptions save for the rare shop visits for my desktop over the past two years, stemming from damage done by a series of power outages.I recently purchased a laptop that came with Windows 8 installed. My first experience with Windows 8.Also, my last.This is, without exception or close competitor, the single worst user interface I have EVER seen.Allow me to repeat that:WINDOWS 8 IS THE WORST USER INTERFACE I HAVE SEEN IN 32 YEARS OF COMPUTER USAGE, ACROSS MORE MANUFACTURERS THAN I CAN NAME OFFHAND.It is effectively all the horrors of…
