    No problem, mate. I just wanted to let folks know to give the new OS a fair shake. At first I swore I would never like it. Now......... I wouldn't let it go. But it took me a good spell to come to know and like it. And the Mayans are probably much more interesting than my upgrade details.

    Win7-8 Dual Boot on a Commodore 64

    Yup it was a long hard bumpy road, trudging across the tundra mile after mile.
    But once 90% of the Modern Apps were Sinofskyed/jettisoned, the desktop is once more my friend.

    An aside.
    Builder Bob, are you any relation to Microsoft Bob?

    As for the Mayans, I was there.
    Chiseling out the 100 or so calendars for the year 2012 depleted their stone quarries.
    Therefore, no more stone, no more calendars. Simple

    I found that uninstalling the bloatware from the install media helped a lot

    I spent the same basic month trying to get everything to settle down. Almost made it but a couple of important things simply would not work. Returned to Win7 and, surprisingly enough, there's nothing about Eight that I miss ... except, well ... the solitaire game was pretty good!

    Look out for that large random chunk of rock............ or the fact that we are nasty to each other (wars)........ or the fact that that some bug/virus could do the job for us...... or that fact that our messing around with the climate/bugs/viruses could do it to ourselves.........

    NB. just being realistic. do not underestimate the ability of man to F**k it up for him(or her)self.....
