    I think it's more the older generations that are having problems, although I'm in that league and don't have any problems and I'm sure many others aren't.
    I personally think Windows 8 is a bold step into the future, something Microsoft needed to do for a long time. Is it 100% perfect, probably not but its a very good first step. I'm dying to see what Blue will bring, I like playing around with a new OS. I've got Mint, Ubuntu and Puppy Linux installed, but every time I use them I miss Windows 8 and it's simplicity to zip around.

    This is in my winter quarters in Florida. And they don't all sign up for classes. 800+ is the total number of club members. Many are not very active.

    For the things these oldies do, they would never have to leave Metro and if they don't leave Metro it is easier than IOS. They should actually be using RT, maybe MS should have made it so that you can use that on a Notebook.
    Probaly true. But they just don't want the whole thing.
    What part of Southern Germany do you come from I love it down there, the people are completely different to the North and the food is great. I love the little Bad villages like Bad Winfen etc and also the villages in Austria around the border, a very beautiful part of the planet.

    My first day in Germany I stopped along the border where about 3 or 4 countries meet and had something to eat in a beautiful little restaurant surrounded by the Alps. I told the lady that I didn't know Switzerland had such nice food, she said that's because you're in Germany.

    I live in Bad Liebenzell in the Black Forest. But I was born near Berlin. This is the view out of my living room:

    I don't know why they call those villages Bad, they're really not that Bad.

    I must have nearly driven past your house, I drove from Salzburg to Munich then Stuttgart and Manheim then drove along the Rhine to see all the old Castles and the mad brothers or whatever.
    Where you live looks a little like Austria around Ludwicks Castle and around St Wolfgang and Halstadt from memory, like I said a beautiful part of the world.
    No good me taking a photo out of my living room all you see is other houses, that's probably why I like travelling a lot. Actually that photo reminds me of every German village, there's always a lot of churches.

    The word 'Bad' means 'Spa'. People come there for curing all kinds of ailments. We have a big spa complex with 3 swimming pools, sauna and therapist rooms for all kinds of treatments. It is on the next lot down from my house (steep hill) at a distance of 100 meters. Next to it is a big park like this.

    You don't have to convince me, I love Europe, hopefully going again in a couple of months, France, Spain and Portugal although I wouldn't mind going back through Switzerland, Austria and Germany.

    We went to America a few months ago, November, we were going to Florida and Miami but it was just after the big storm on the East Coast, I thought flights might have been to chaotic so we just went to Hawaii, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. It was just as well a lady told me it was freezing in November. I never knew it could get that cold in Florida even the Grand Canyon wasn't as cold.

    Better get back on track or we'll have to start another forum. Anyway I love your village.

    It's funny that people always remember the beer. I don't drink beer, but wine.

    Oh dear , the same old myths being trotted out.

    Change for the worse = bad.

    Change for the better = good.

    Why is that so hard for some to understand.
