    Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. but there are so many people that bash windows 8.1 and Vista as bad operating systems but as a person that has been on Vista and now 8.1 I have to say they are not as bad as people say they are overall. Not to offend anyone but I think a lot of people that complain are people who haven't given them a fair chance. I am sure that if something is working well for you then I say stick with it as long as you can.

Solved Bored in Chillout Room
I'm bored so I will relate my computer experience. Did Tuesday's Updates. They were kind of weird. They broke SilverLight & had to reinstall it. After the Updates I ran Extended Disk Cleanup. Took over 2 hours mainly because of Windows Update Cleanup. Ran CCleaner.
