I think that M$ think we are stupid, For some reason I don’t believe their statement, it just sounds like the old excuse "yeah, I knew that"
I wonder what qualifications you would need to work in their publicity department.
Maybe it’s how to cut up dead fish ?

Wouldn’t it be better if they just remove all discussion of Win-8?
Just pretend it never happened and move on to Win-9.

Ken - whoo hooo! Excellent. 64-gray shades! The NEW Future!! None of those silly colors, and maybe we can go back to 8k Graphics. Just think of all that processing power we could recapture. The new Green would be Gray!!

(I’ve got a Dell notebook that is our portable DVD player - Win98SE, 8k graphics - plays all DVDs just fine, excellent sound, etc. Massive 6Gb HDD. I thought about world-domination with that machine when I bought it in 1999. Still a huge 15" square screen.)

“A rose by any other name still gives you hay-fever.” I think William Shakespeare was going to say that. Stan Lee did.

Or is this merely another Microsoftism from their “Can’t Teach Dead Dogs New Tricks” Department?

I’ll certainly have fun experimenting with it, but my list of THINGS I HATE ABOUT WIN7 is still getting scrawled crayon notes occasionally. I’ll just tack up a second piece of people for Win8.

WinH8? Ugh-leee…

I’ll keep remembering the other wonderful saying, “It always gets darkest before it gets completely black.” -Uncle Martin ([I]Ray Walston, My Favorite Martian, 1962)[/I].

Generally the more someone acts like I’m stupid, often because of THEIR poor vocabulary, pronunciation, syntax or simply convoluted or false logic (or all of the above) the closer I get to putting them out of MY misery (Like I could give a Rat’s Hemorrhoid about THEIR misery)

Microsoft is working hard to win an olympic gold medal in stupid

The majority of their customer base would probably buy a faster less bloated version of windows 7 and pay full price for it, but the idea that this new “Fisher-Price” OS is gonna be successful…(for other than tablet users and smart phone owners) I’m not wondering if their mothers dropped them on their heads as a baby, but just how often this gravitational therapy happened…

I really wonder how their stock holders are refraining from sharpening their castration knives… or are they dulling those knives to make the experience of those getting cut just a little more special?

I was asked in another venu if I had tried windows8 and what I thought of it.

MY answer was that if I wanted an OS that looked like the Microsoft add-on gallery for IE8/9 I would have asked them for it.

But as things stand now any time I see, read or hear a reference to Windows8
I start humming the tune to the Stephen Lynch song “Special Fred”

And not just in reference to the legion of idiots asking on various help forums
"How do I get my previous operating system back after trying out Windows8"

Which question I generally have little to say that these people want to hear…
and usually starts off with “Didn’t you read the disclaimer on the microsoft download page?”

I have tried and I despise Windows 8

Are you aware you can get windows7 themes that make it look like Windows8?

I hate those too.
