    Metro at first, then, it's Desktop on the PC?

    Metro is mostly to benefit tablet and phone users with touch screens. I think MS is trying to build an OS that is everything to everyone. I've been using it for several weeks now, and I have found little use for Metro on a laptop. It looks good and I sort of like the slide show through my...

    Death Of Best Buy's Big Box Store?

    RadioShack predicted both Circuit City folding and Best Buy 15 years ago. Not that I approve of any of them, but RS has a proven business model that has worked a lot longer than either of the other major electronics retailers have been around.

    What happens when the released version...

    ...gets loaded over the preview version? Will it be upgradeable without destroying or overwriting files, folders, settings, and installed programs? I've never tried a preview version of an OS and then bought the released version. Does anyone know?

    Solved Is anyone on here happy with windows 8?

    I like it, but then I didn;t have Vista or Win7 to compare it to. I am a hard-core XP user and have been for a decade. Until I was practically given this corrupt machine I'm on now, you couldn't have pried XP out of my hands. Metro is definitely different, and I'm not really sure I need that on...

    Windows 8 Tips and Tricks!

    Thanks for posting the link to the program that restores the start button. That makes life on a PC much easier. I think they may have fixed the bug in the program where the start button overlaps the EI logo. Mine looks fine and is evenly spaced. No overlap.
