    Be fabulous if MS do bring in the "New Startmenu " kinda like "New task Manager", all those fanatics who previously hated the very idea - will be crowing about how wonderful it is.

    Keep up the entertainment.

    Don't worry, MS will be ok in the end. To borrow from Winnie :

    "You can always count on them to make the right decision, after they have tried everything else. "
    You can't call me a Fanboy SIW2, maybe others, but not me, I'm about as far removed from a Fanboy as you can get, I'm all about tech.
    Maybe it's because you're so intertwined with Microsoft that you can't see what's happening, or even that you somehow own a share in Microsoft.
    The tech world is moving at a very rapid pace, Microsoft was slow to react, it's trying to get back in the race, what's wrong with that. Oh I know, the Windows fanboys have been slapped in the face again, Microsoft is not listening to their gazillion ideas, everyone wants something different and Microsoft is not listening, maybe because its trying to survive.
    Maybe they have been listening, maybe there will be some changes in Windows Blue, I'm pretty sure a mammoth project like Windows can't be changed overnight.
    I think the Windows 7 forum is sending Microsoft a petition, get involved in that, but do we have to keep rubbishing everything to do with Microsoft. You know the tech bloggers are laughing their heads off at these forums, because none of us can agree.

    Anyway don't take anything I say personally, I don't go out of my way to insult Windows users, I'm actually one of you, although I don't always feel that I am.
    I do from time to time have a little dig here and there but it's all good clean fun, the only time I get a bit serious is when I'm having a shot at Apple users and even that is a lot of sarcasm.

    Nope they were Russian bees.
    Russians don't need bees, they're Mosquitos are bigger and more vicious than bees, no wonder they're such an angry mob.

    I admire you for your bee keeping. I have a good friend that does it. It must keep you close to nature. That's one thing about all this tech. It drives us ever farther from Mother Earth. I'm going for a walk.....

    I forgot about you Labeeman, now I know why you've got such a bee in your bonnet.

    And sw2, I'll give that Mate Nadia a go, the one I've got feels a bit bloated like Ubuntu.

    That's interesting. I see you have run out of the Russian royalty for the next couple of months. Are these gals in short supply ?

I have raised my price three years in a row in order to control demand last year it did not I ended up turning down orders for 500 queens.

    @labeeman

    Thanks for the link. Interesting stuff. I see there is a mite problem, that's why the Russian bees. I learned something today.

    BTW, I try to eat local honey. My friend tells me it's good for the immune system. I like it in hot tea.
