Windows 8.1 Update 2 Confirmed

    "I don't like it, therefore it's no good" is no argument at all, it's not an opinion even. Using same combination Netscape/FF for years and did not go crazy (yet). Simple fact is that FF suits me, so I'm keeping it, nothing else to it. With a right combination of ad-ons it does the job just fine. Flash is what makes me more problems than anything else. Chrome is fine one too but FF suits me better so it's a keeper for me.

    Right on mate. Can you elaborate the "I don't like it 'cos it it rubbish" argument to include the start button, the inability of people to press the "off" button to turn off their PC and (in case you forgot) the "start button".

    Don't forget there is a lot of rubbish in Windows 8 that people don't want to see (and therefore don't)
    It doesn't fit with your current argument though. We would need a second "It is rubbish, I don't look at it but I'm still cross even though I don't look and at it I know it is there". Or would that be silly?

    Right, that reminds me of an old lady protesting about a book. When they asked her if she read it at all, she said: "I don't read that rubbish".

    I've a feeling (but don't quote me on this) that she was talking about the Bible.

    They should just call this thing Windows 8.2 then 8.3..etc. Maybe there is no Windows 9 since Microsoft probably thinks Windows 8 is a major shift from traditional Windows. Similar to that of OS X. There is no OS 11 because there is no drastic shift from OS X.

    Would it be better if there were separate editions of Windows that catered to the different audiences, like a tablet version where the desktop fades away, a hybrid version with both the desktop and Metro/Store so that people can use both, and an Enterprise/Pro version where the primary focus is desktop productivity?

    I guess we should "wish upon a star", M$ does not offer much hope for things like that.

    True, one can only hope I guess. Sometimes I think they are capable, what with the "backtracking" they've been doing with Xbox One and the updates to Windows 8 that they've been doing to appease keyboard and mouse users.

    That would be a huge mess. The average user will look at the store shelf and be like "WTF?" lol It's simple for them to implement. All of these options should be given to the user at the Windows Setup screen when they finish installing Windows on their computer. Windows should automatically detect if the computer is a desktop, a non touch screen laptop, a hybrid or a tablet and configure the appropriate settings. Or give the consumer a custom option as well that they can change at anytime through Control Panel. Why is this not implemented, I don't know lol.
