    I'm sure that the Windows 8 Nazis can relate to Bloomberg: Gulp! Bloomberg's Large Soda Ban Fizzles - DNAinfo.com New York.

    I've been using it that way, without a problem, since the CP.

    Sorry Wenda, you're probably the main one I wanted to catch, if its no more difficult than any other OS, why do you feel you're being forced.
    I don't smoke, but I buy cars with a cigarette lighter and ashtray, I don't feel I'm being forced, they're just there.

    Hands down.

    It doesn't matter how good or bad Windows 8 is because of all the negative news. It will be no better than Vista unless M$ pays users to use it and at the rate they are spending money on Adds it will be cheaper to do that.

    Perhaps it's a problem of eye/hand coordination when they see that big Start Screen. Perhaps mesmerized by the moving tiles? Different colors?

    Perhaps World plus Dog are smarter than you give them credit and aren't prepared to drink the Microsoft Cool Aide.

    ...lets you fix Microsoft's problem whilst they're still debating on just how big a u-turn they have to make in order to rescue Windows....
    LOL. He's right there.

    He's right again ..

    It's this "shoving" between polychronistic and monochronistic modes that is — and I mean this — actively offensive and hostile — to users of Windows 8.

    I'd say you probably need those things Ray, but others can figure it out.
