    Hi there
    I thought it was "German Democratic Republic" or the Old East Germany -- perhaps the way Ms is forcing changes on unwilling consumers is rather reminiscent of how that particular failed state used to operate.

    Reminds me a bit like the "Borg" in Star trek Voyager series -- "You Will comply -- Resistance is Futile .... You will be absorbed ..." -- Sevenofnine -- the most good looking woman in the entire Star trek series -- all of them.

    Actually for my own part - after a minor tweak here and there I quite LIKE Windows 8.1 -- this is what Windows 8 SHOULD have been from the first.

    -- Lesson to businesses -- being the FIRST to get a new product out there isn't always the best strategy -- do your Market research FIRST --- Look at Samsung -- the IPhone had a clear run for ages - but apart from your preference in style / looks can anybody doubt that the Samsung S4 phone is technologically inferior to the IPhone in any way whatsoever -- personal preferences aside of course - there are some who won't touch an APPLE product even if you gave it to them FREE and some who would avoid a Samsung product too.

    Cheers

    We are the Borg, you will be assimilated, resistance is futile.

    There is always Windows 7, or Linux, or Apple. Pick your poison.
