Ehma2Retour's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Very correct"

Microsoft Windows 8
For installation on an iMac, it has not been easy but it was mostly due to the keyboard and mouse bouetooth.

If not it was rather


It was on an iMac i3 12GB ram, apart from the problem of keyboard installation, everything went well.

It is a fluid and stable version of Windows. I mostly bought because it was probably the last time that I could upgrade from XP.

I did not encounter any particular problem with the equipment


It's been a year, but I use little.

The "tiles" mode is confusing at first, but we made it. Contrary to many opinions on the Web, I think it's a pretty good version of Windows, it is quite stable and very fluid.

I had a few surprises, except install some sound drivers which it is obliged to try again several times.

The black dot are made incessant day, one of them to the manager undermined "Bootcamp".

Maybe I'm getting rapped on the knuckles by the critic of Windows 8, but I must admit that this version surprised me by its stability and fluidity.

on the other hand audio and mainly USB, problems are always the same: higher latency, few events offset between audio and MIDI and some problems installing some drivers including the Steinberg CI.

I will not make my main platform, I much prefer using OS Unix philosophy: Mac OS and Linux music for the development and exploitation.

Microsoft Windows 8

there are big problems of compatibility with FireWire controllers and Windows 8.
The mine (I bought this one) one cart PCI-e TI chipset can not run my Edirol FA 101 (except with unsigned drivers, which forces me to do a manip at each boot ...) .

more info here:

And here:


Core 2 Quad Q6600, 4 GB ram (266 mhz * 2), mechanical hard drive

I think the perfs improved compared to win XP (I went from 32 to 64 bits suddenly it was "liberated" the ram!)
But the best thing is especially startup speed has really higher than XP!


Without pbs compatibility windows seems to me that a roughly equal a win 7:

Improved task manager and system file copy is appreciable.
As well as the ability to run a program with windows key + you type the first letter of the program name.

Against ui replaced by modern very bad start menu, they have failed to see the difference between desktop and tablet (I'd say they have made no effort).
The apps I'm not interested in mass I would say that tolerated their presence in a form close widgets vista ... but it is not!
They are imposed on the startup screen modern ui. Add a modern open it for ui must place the mouse in a corner and wait (half a second course, but this is already too long ...).

In short there is more very interesting but it is ruined by the new ui, not at all suited to desktop.
I think Microsoft would make Windows a more closed system in Ios I think this is a serious strategic error ... we'll see!
