Which OS is better? Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 ?
Should be the option: are the same
A couple of noticeable improvements in 8.1 but much the same as the person above said.
8 RTM is better for me,I believe.It makes my laptop more responsive Than 8 MSDN and even 8.1 RTM.I can't see real changes in 8.1 RTM,in it's contents nor appearance .It's not even a reliable OS as I tested it and uninstalled it a few days afterwards.
isn't windows 8 rtm the same as windows 8 msdn, you lost me there
Just you try it and make your own judgment.Google it to know what's RTM and MSDN.We should take the trouble to read sometimes.
windows 8 rtm = windows 8 msdn
The windows 8 RTM is exactly the same as the windows 8 MSDN release, i don't know where you got the idea it's different check the iso' hash
and please do some googling yourself
You are a MDL EXpert.So tell me why a Genuine 8 RTM installs different drivers from the ones that are installed by a genuine 8 MSDN ,for example ?
I do the testing of OS.I rate the same computer and track the performance.I did that hundreds of times.I know exactly the difference.
man whatever you smoke must be good
I gave up on this topic!
Instead of arguing about the differences why don't you use a Hash Utility and give us the MD5 or SHA1 of both .iso
@Aninvitedsoul: I believe you must be comparing 8.0 to 8.1 so yes there are some changes. Only thing I notice is less fan noise when using 8.1 compared to 8.
No Im not.I meant exactly what I said.Try it yourself.Cheers.
I know and use Hash Tab.I meant the enhancement of performance I see for each iso.
if the hash is the same that means it is the same iso!
please give me whatever that you are smoking, i might end up agreeing with you
seriously for me no more replying to your post.
must be win 8.1, but still lots of applications can not work well one 8.1
What is the exact source of your MSDN and RTM versions? Where did they come from?
If they install different driver versions, I'm likely to believe one or the other is either non-legitimate, or pre-release.
As for the poll, I'm undecided. With mouse issues, more reliance on a Microsoft Account (apparently), and that akward coloring of every shortcut on the Start screen on 8.1, I'm not that quick to call it better. On the other hand, it probably has some under-the-hood performance tweaks and stuff which are nice.
I'd still go for 8.1 just because it's newer though.
I'm with you on this. Call me crazy but somehow I felt 8.1 feels a little more polished and refined than 8. And in any case, it does everything I needed from 8, and more. 8.1 is my OS of choice.
