You're using them on the devices they were aimed at. Mouse or not, those are the devices those OS's were designed for.Windows 8/8.1 and 10 have been just fine on my Surface Pro 3. I use a touchpad mouse, not the touch screen and I have zero issue with how the OS works. Tiles are just shortcuts. 8.1 brought back the start menu and 10 further refined it. I can do everything I need to without issue. So, most of what I read when people complain about W8.1/10 is just them being opposed to visual changes because they are opposed to change in any form. Windows 10 works just fine.
I can understand that, but it really isn't all the different. Tiles are exactly the same as shortcuts, only they happen to provide more info. If I had to deal with Win8/10 without any intro I would feel the same probably. Since I had a Windows Phone before I got my SP3, I was already familiar with how it all worked, which made the transition that much easier. Arguably, MS should have left the start menu in W8 like it is now so that people would have something more familiar to work with.Actually, I never referred to drivers.
I was referring to the radical change that Win8 made to the UI that left a bunch of us old timers going
Edit: Bill is telling me just to shut up and deal with it. Fine. I can live with Windows 10.
