    Still, no big deal. Just ignore it and do as you've always done.

    Easy to do now, but when then make it compulsory to sign-in with a 'Live ID' and insist on 'streaming' applications from their servers, it will be a little more 'interesting'

    They are only trying to protect you from the "evils" of pirated software.

    I have a hypothesis about why W8 is so ugly.
    It's to make the upcoming "Cloud" OS more appealing.

    MS will claim that it's too difficult to make an attractive desktop OS (like W7).
    Their "Cloud" OS will have exotic, no-expense-spared visuals.

    People will flock to it.

    Hi,

    We all have George Orwell's 1984 to blame for it......

    The trouble with '1984' is that some treat it as a training-manual rather than a fictional warning.

    The same could be said for 'Animal Farm'.

    The trouble with 1984 is that the book/movie is more well known than the album, because of what reality is becoming.

    Hi,

    My point exactly, Kat. The writing was on the wall since 1949 already....

    Saddest thing is that millions of otherwise seemingly intelligent people are gullible enough to fall for it.

    It's a quite pecuniar war out there if you catch my drift.....

    There is no escape otherwise you are presented with a 'left behind' label and will be scarred for life!! So join in and hand over all your personal data/details etc and don't worry, big brother is looking after you - LOL.
