My laptop can see my 8.1 Pro's HomeGroup and password, but can never finish joining it.Even deleting the HomeGroup in 8.1 Pro (leaving,etc.) and recreating it doesn't solve...

    Unable to create a homegroup in win8

    The only way you can create a HomeGroup in Windows 8/8.1 is if you have Windows 8/8.1 Pro or Windows 8/8.1 Enterprise. If you have plain Windows 8/8.1, you can't create a HomeGroup, you can only join one.

    Yeah, we'll probably all need new gpu's to use it. They're also, changing the coding in Windows 10 from the 6*** numbering that was used in Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 in Windows 10 to 10,***. I'm curious to see if that last one effects what software will work with Windows 10. The current...

    No new Windows Phone flagship until second half of 2015

    2014 didn't have a true flagship Windows Phone. The Lumia 1520 from 2013 is still the king of Windows Phone's. All the new phones other than having newer cpu's/graphics, are otherwise lower spec'd than any Windows Phone 8 equivalent.
