    My God! You do lots of travelling and you have more devices than you have hands and fingers. What an expert. I have cupboards/fridges full of food, spices etc and I cook all the time, but that doesn't make me a chef.

    Those over 50% iPads was done through legitimate research unlike your remark about Android and IOS.
    OK statistics boy, show me your references.

    I just loaded my Windows 8 Pro OEM System Builder edition. That's 4 editions (EE twice because I didn't know I could renew until after the fact) I've loaded without a hitch. And with much convenience of which I'll explain in a new thread tomorrow a.m. RP and EE editions ran as smooth as silk with very minimal problems.

    The Windows 8 train has left the station. When this thing gets up to full speed by late Spring to mid Summer, there will be no way of stopping it. Along with Windows phone 8 and the Surfaces, MS will make a ton of money. I dare say this is one of the biggest technological and marketing breakthroughs since the iPad and iPhone combo. The trifecta delivered as predicted and planned.

    You're a lot smarter than I am Ray, I'm sure you'll be able to find it, either use your crystal ball or Google.

    Sorry, but you proclaimed it and until you prove it, it's just more BS.

    Can you convert that to English, rather than Microsoft marketing speak.

    "Hey what's with the insults".

    Actually from memory it could have been more like 60%, haven't you ever seen little snotty nosed two year old kids with these things, maybe they're learning spreadsheets from a young age.

    You're drawing a very long bow calling it an insult when I challenge you to prove yourself, which it seems that you can't do and instead try to side track with irrelevant anecdotes.

    Also, the following raises some interesting questions:

    Why exactly does a Windows champion have so many non-Windows products (3 iPads?)? All I have, and all I have ever had, are Windows products, I have no interest in owning any of the other devices. It seems somewhat illogical for someone to have so many non-Windows devices, to bag anyone who criticises anything about Windows/Microsoft. Unless they are a Microsoft shill.

    Actually it's because I do have these other products that I can say with ease, that in my opinion, we would be better off with more Windows products.

    While both Android and IOS have their good points, they're just not Windows. A lot of people may not want or need Windows, but a lot more would be better off with an OS that can be run across a variety of devices.

    Especially businesses.

    It took you three iPads to come to that conclusion?

    Hi there
    Well we could always go back to a REAL MULTITASKING OS and via a process known as SYSGEN you could add a huge variety of devices too !!!!.

    Here's an old IBM mainframe OS - MVS - running TSO -- I'm running this under the HERCULES emulator (emulates 370 / 390 Mainframe instructions) on a LAPTOP which probably has more power than the old Mainframe I used ever did. (Running the whole kybosh on a W2003 server Virtual machine on W8 enterprise guest.

    screenshot enc (only using Monochrome here as in those days -- monochrome was all you initially had -- until "Luxury" 4 and 6 colour terminals (3277 / 3278) appeared. !!!).

    Windows in a SYNCH compared with this old lot and we didn't complain -- just got on with it.

    Cheers -- and a bit of History for you guys.
