    Hi there

    Typical reaction in our country :
    .. I need a stiff drink --where's the nearest Pub. !!!

    (but we aren't "Normal People" here --are we !!).

    Two of my friends just got Win8, one on a new desktop and the other installed it on a year-old laptop and they both love it and have no issues so far...

    It's a real toss of the coin as to whether someone will like Win8 or not. In my case I only know of one person (so far) who has bought a new system with it installed and he hated it.

    Lol!! Yea and they hate it when I mention anything about such matters at a bar! It's like mentioning anything of politics or religion. One is better off keeping quiet about it!

    I don't hate it. But given a choice, I don't choose it. But if I bought a new pc that came with 8, I would keep it.

    I know how to use it, but it frustrates me when I do use it.

    You got me! I have to admit, that is quite humorous! The error is corrected.

    But, you should know that I don't get mad, I get even....

    Therapist?!! Why yes! How did you guess?!! Along with Cokie, mdmd, Mystere, Arpan, Lee, gazz9496, and so many other 8 fans of which I hate to leave out. We're all Windows 8 therapists. Would you like to lay on the couch to begin a session for all to diagnose your condition?

    I am glad you took it with humor. But thank you anyhow - I am too old for the couch.
