    A Big Thank You To This Forum

    after passing on vista and w7 upgrades over the years, i decided to finally take the leap, opting for w8p/64 with my new machine purchase, and once and for all retiring my faithful xp os which had served me well since it was first released (well not entirely true, i still use xp for a couple of very old legacy programs that i can't live without, using virtualbox from within w8).

    anyway i was fortunate to discover this great forum prior to my move to w8, and it has made the transition very smooth, painless and enjoyable - from the installation process to learning the w8 ropes, i have continued to reference this forum for guidance and instruction, and it has never come close to letting me down. so a big thanks to the admins, the expert contributors and forum members for creating such a valuable resource, very well done gents!

    yes they are and, you know what, i'm thinking w8 is pretty great as well... probably not the os to end all os's, but i'm really liking it a lot, a heck of a lot more than xp. in fact when i first installed it i was sure that i wouldn't be able to live without the start menu so i purchased stadock's nice add-on, but in the last few days i have i've been using w8 without the stardock menu and am really getting the hang of it, with a bit of tweaking it's going to rock...

    Welcome to the forum, it is nice to have such a friendly place were we can learn about using the new OS, which I agree is a very good OS.

I have been so stuck on my iPad / iPhone and when I got my laptop with Win 8 it was a bit overwhelming. I've been able to ask lame ass questions, and gotten very real, educational answers. Especially by Brink. Without even being laughed at my nearly juvenile questions. Thanks again so much for...
