Sorry if this is the wrong subforum but its a bit of several topics.

While STO ran brilliantly on Windows 7 for me, running it on Windows 8 is more interesting...sure on the Microsoft website it says yay it works with us and it does to some extent, since I moved to windows 8 there have been 'holes' see through parts in my Defiant and some of the bases I've been to. Another thing is that when STO loads (the logo loading screen for sto on the black background), the game always seems to freeze up my computer both monitors now and mess around with the OS a bit resembling the not aero compatible in Win7. Has anyone else been getting this or is it just me?

But I'm glad it works to some extent with Windows 8!

Windows 8 looks like the biggest pile of excrement Microsoft have released since Windows ME, whose primary purpose appears to be to turn my PC into some kind of giant mobile phone with "social media" integrated into everything

Total non-issue for me, I'll be sticking with 7.

I haven't looked into it too much, but W8 is sounding like the worst thing since Vista...

If I wanted a tablet OS, I'd buy a tablet PC.

No issues here on the system I have with Windows 8 and STO on it. You might want to check for newer drivers for your hardware.

Windows 8? I am still running it under Windows 3.11 and MS DOS.

But seriously, I have it working on both Vista and XP SP3.

Yet somehow they remain on top. I never understood all the hate for MS. If they were terrible nobody would use their product, yet it is the most widely used OS in the world.

I'm sticking with windows 7 too - you can keep the likes of Faceache, PooTube and Twatter. Utter, utter garbage the lot of them and I don't want that rubbish poluting my laptop.
