    Hi there
    Funny you should say that -- I have put the money in an envelope on occasion and the dog got the paper while I was outside the shop. I've long since stopped using those things where you can only use them outdoors -- actually here it's likely to be made against the law even to use them inside your own house if there are children present (you have to go out into the garden or Street) -- while I agree with as minimum Government interference as possible I fully support that law if it goes through.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    Hopefully X-64. IMO Ms should now just forget about the 32 bit editions from here on in. I can't think of even quite old PC's that can't handle 64 bit versions.

    32 bit software can still run of course.

    Cheers

    Um, there have actually been a lot of updates, consuming quite a bit of space since Windows 8 was released. Something in the ballpark of 40 updates at nearly 1GB from what I can remember from building a new PC image a month or so ago.

    @ pparks1: 8 has gotten a relatively small number of updates compared to what Vista/7 got. I remember updating Vista from scratch on a freshly installed system, it was pure hell (this was before any Service Packs came out). And what made it even worse was that for Vista oftentimes the updates would fail to finish applying after reboot, after you've waited a half hour or more to be able to use your PC. 8's updates might be taking alot of space, but 40 isnt much (at least not to me anyways). Oftentimes Vista/7 would offer updates several times a week, but not 8. Have barely seen anything in over a week, and I've checked everyday.

    Microsoft releases updates once a month in patch Tuesday unless there is a severe issue.

    Sure, there are more total updates for 7, but it's been out for years. 8 only has about 6 months behind it at this point.

    I'm not saying 8 is terrible and needs lots of patches, but for its short lifespan there have been quite a few updates.

    This is true.

    On January 30, 2007, it (Vista) was released worldwide
    A little off topic. It's been a little more than 6 years since Vista was released. This is funny to me. I reinstalled Vista several months ago to revisit it and the system wanted to update it with almost 600 updates.

    @ mdmd: Yes, Vista is old. But it is relevant for my example because the update process for Vista is essentially the same as it is for 7 and 8:

    DL updates, install updates, reboot (sometimes, not always), wait for updates to successfully finish applying (or fail), wash, rinse, and repeat until nothing is left to install.

    And some updates are dependent on others already being installed on the system, otherwise they wont be offered. and others arent offered unless certain programs are installed (Office, Visual Studio, etc).

    Yes, perhaps... my stupid silly little blurb was that Vista is not that old, I guess. Everyone seems to think 8 is supposed to be different in terms of updates and upgrades.

    I don't use 7 but isn't 7 approaching hundreds of updates since release (2009) with service packs in the pipeline?

    I suppose many think 8 is a pia because MS must update and/or upgrade the metro pos (in a view).
