That's a clear indication that the so-called 'benefits' that you speak of are nothing but empty rhetoric. I've noticed that others have picked up on this in numerous previous post, contradictions as well. You 'talk the talk' but when it comes to 'walking the walk', everything goes wobbly.
I have to agree with Coke. Why continue the discussion when you're clearly just itching to seize any opportunity to bash the platform? I don't think I've ever seen a positive post about 8 from you, and I've read these Forums every day for 6 months. No one should be blind to the failings of their OS of choice, they all have failings, but you have to offer something other than vitriol to retain credibility.
Hi Coke, and sashlon,
Take a little advice; Ray is now attempting to do to you two like he did to Bill. Don't play his game. Like the two of you I have read everything he has posted to date, and though I would be one of the first to say he is very good at what he does, and that is to attempt to bring you into his world then pick you apart piece, by piece, just don't get caught in his web. . .JAFO. . .what can I say.
Firstly, the seeming abandonment of the familiar desktop environment such as the removal of the start button for no tangible reason (which many people are unhappy about) and, secondly, the utter inflexibility of the apps (which Stardock has partly remedied, but is only about 50% effective because of Windows 8 design issues that are beyond their control).
Several on this forum feel the way that you and Mr Robot do about my comments, but that usually boils down to the fact that you have no valid arguments with which to shoot me down. So all you can do is call me a Windows 8 hater, call for my removal, or equally childish responses.
My retort to such comments is; don't reply, don't dig yourself in deeper, or eat some concrete and harden up.
Whatever happened to the days when one was responsible for one's own actions? I guess like in Australia, as everywhere else, when someone does something wrong, it's always someone else's fault. They are the victims of society, someone led them astray, the government didn't do enough, it has nothing to do with the individual and their actions.
