    A touch of ironic humour. Perhaps it got lost in the translation.

    Probably me. Slower to catch on since I'm an old guy now and cheap too. Figured I had better grab that deal while I could and I'm glad I did because I couldn't see paying what they want for it now.

    If you are going to buy thing , fifteen bucks is a lot less painful than whatever they are asking now. Quite a few of them going unused I expect, lying at the back of a drawer like some unwanted gift from a doddery aunt.

    Actually for uses, $14.99 and $5 for Start8, I have it set up to fit me pretty well. I stay in the desktop most of the time but I do have a few programs on the Modern side I use as well. I pretty much started with computers from the DOS age. although I did have an Osborne (remember those?) before that. I try to stay open, but as I said, I've adapted it for my use, other users mileage may vary.

    Microsoft pocketed the money for 200 million licensees regardless if they are setting on some OEM's or other companies shelves. It really only matters to those who for some reason just can't get past the idea of Microsoft making money from Windows 8.
