Talking of Bridges -- Lake Havasu in Arizona -- they thought they were buying the Original TOWER Bridge from London -- but they bought LONDON BRIDGE instead which was just basically a traffic bridge -- so there's always a Market for anything. !!
Here's the old London Bridge -- as the poster says "Worlds largest Antique". I remember that Bridge in London - it was covered with Grime and I used to walk across it from London Bridge Railway station going to MONUMENT underground station to catch a train to South Kensigton to go to University (Imperial College). It always seemed to be raining - but I'm used to that anyway.

Perhaps all that MS should do would be to release a free applet that shall put the Start Button back. They would then have pleased the whole world.
Tablet interface is fine for the lay users and therefore with the passage of time 90% users might start loving the Windows 8 GUI, but for the experts who want to be in control of the machine the Windows 7 GUI was far better.
This is just my opinion and many would perhaps differ with me.

It would be better for them to put back the little bit of code they removed. Easy for them to do and tiny.
You got that one correct! They could improve the look of the taskmanager but trash the desktop gui? Does that make much sense? It would have been easier to simply revamp the look and feel of the more traditional Start if they wanted to add a Settings and Apps Crawler bar without dumping the Start entirely and slapping a full screen of Metro apps in your face instead.
To add further to muster they then strip out the media features that have been in since XP and MCE to follow lessening the worth of the OS and you wonder why the low prices for 8 were seen? They must have realized late that was the only way they were going to be able to sell it!
I am so utterly sick and tired of trying to fix all the errors in this lousy Windows 8 system that I am now going back to Windows 7.
For the last few weeks, this 6-month old laptop, upgraded from Windows 7, has not been able to install updates - they download but just refuse to install. I have spent the last 6 hours trying to sort out the problem. Go through the procedure to fix one error message and it then refuses to update because of another (hexadecimal) error message.
Automatic repair gives up after 10 seconds with the wonderfully helpful error message "Windows could not load properly" - that is all!
Refresh your PC gives up with the equally helpful; message "There was a problem refreshing your PC. No changes were made"
Re installing the OS likewise fails.
Sorry, but Windows 8 is rubbish. I know it looks pretty and runs fast but it is just not robust. Win7 is infinitely more stable
This is interesting. All these errors may have a common cause so it may be difficult to proceed. BUT why does a reinstall fail. That should work no matter what - except if there were a hardware problem.
Here's the recipe for salad Nicoise.

I'm having it tonight for supper.
It's not only delicious but colorful and a whole lot more interesting than reading these mundane belly aches harping about Windows 8.

It looks like Windows 8 brings out the worst in people; turning them into self-righteous and condescending twats.
