Windows 8 - renders new PC unusable!
I suppose its my own fault, but I've bought a brand new all-in-one PC that came with Windows 8 for someone here. An i3 with 4gb of ram and nothing much installed, but thanks to buggy old Windows 8 its effectively unusable for 15-20 minutes or so after logging in. This is offline, not joined to a domain! The task manager shows 100% disk activity - when this finally calms down the system is responsive.
With this sort of crappy performance on a brand new out of the box pc, I wonder if this os was ever tested before release!
I've checked and is only seems to be the 'system' process that is hammering the system. I could delve deeper, but you know what - I shouldn't have to, this should be making me think differently about W8 but all its done is manage to convince me even more that it wasn't release ready.
