    Microsoft may bring back full start menu with 8.2

    You sir, are to be congratulated. I can't believe how society has allowed itself to become addicted to those things to the point where their use is killing people on the highways. -jeff

    USB Problems with 8.1

    It's comforting to know that Microsoft continues to maintain the same low standards they've set for themselves.

    For Non US citizens -- LET's DUMP Halloween

    Shoot Jimbo, I *am* a US citizen and I agree with ya. The last thing I look forward to is a bunch of rug rats ringing the doorbell looking for handouts that will further fatten up the little turds and driving my dog nuts. _jeff

    Windows 8.1 Installation Error: 0x80070057

    :roflmao: You got that right. Those developer and quality control folks in Redmond must be on to a stash of good Cambodian weed with what they've been releasing lately. -jeff

    Win8 or Win8.1?

    I'm seeing too many little sticky issues out here post 8.1 upgrade. Maybe not huge or earth shattering but enough to make me hesitate. I'd sit on the sidelines awhile, watch things, and see how it shakes out. -jeff

    Reconciling 2 Worlds With Windows 8.1

    Give me a call when "TileWorld" will run things like SQL Developer, TOAD, Stat, PeopleSoft Application Designer, UltraEdit, Autosys, Control-M and several other software development tools simultaneously in a multi, overlapping window environment. -jeff

    MS's new mission statement: No more computer on every desk

    Why the blue screen of death no longer plagues Windows use

    It was probably replaced by that totally asinine dialog box message that somebody posted about in the General Support section - "Something Happened". I kid you not, that was real. Jeff

    Why use 3rd party Menus - much more flexible way (W8/8.1)

    Sorry for the misunderstanding Jimbo, I wasn't referring to you at all. It was the reply to your post that basically came across sounding like those that prefer some sort of menu button verses Metro/Modern are Neanderthals. Since my reply was immediately after that I assumed it would be taken...

    Increasing the app roaming limits

    Hehehe, yes it is. To the bikers among us "81" has a meaning. H is the 8th letter in the alphabet, A is the 1st. HA - Hells Angels. Maybe there are some biker brothers in Microsoft. :D -jeff

    Surface 2: Everything that's wrong with Microsoft's model

    Instead they had yuppiescum dancing on desks flapping lids open and closed. You have one chance to make a first impression and they failed miserably. Strike one. It just left a bad taste in my mouth that I still have; that they lost the vision of people having a serious use for...

    Why use 3rd party Menus - much more flexible way (W8/8.1)

    8.1 Evaluation from Windows Secrets Newsletter

    My point exactly. I couldn't care less about a click count. If I am 10 levels deep in a program debugging subroutines I don't want or need my attention or thought process broken momentarily. It takes much longer than a moment to get your head back into it once diverted. As for the Start8...

    8.1 Evaluation from Windows Secrets Newsletter

    I can't remember who, maybe you musiclover7, but somebody in this thread said it best when they pointed out the obvious fact that to get to the Start Screen, you will totally be leaving your application(s) / work in progress and for me, train of thought. It is simply too distracting. It may be...
