Re: we don't need a start menu/screen that takes up a whole screen

Re: What would really make a huge difference is fixing the license
"Thanks but no thanks. I stick to free licences like Apache"
I think you mis-spelled 'Unenforceable shrinkwrapped EULA; there.

Re: Start Icon != Start Menu. This the problem.
What key? I ask, you tit- this is a tablet.
You use IE6 then?
Re: "...treats such as peanut butter..."
They probably send non-vomit inducing peanut butter. It's rocket science, after all...

Re: $100Bn cash pile
It's the US tax way- even the 2012 Olympics winners from the US had to pay tax on the cash and a percentage of the medal's worth...
Re: Easy to see that Win8...
"Professional organisations need professional products. Bear that in mind and say 'No' to Windows 8"
We'll put Outlook on Windows RT slabs
Like that is supposed to be an improvement? Outloook!

He's missing this- penables!

Re: Too little, too late ....
Not to burst your bubble, but no-one gives a fuck about Windows anymore.
"how easy it will be to use these new "features"...?"
It will probably require CMD and Powershell and much RegEdit...
It just works.
An impressive selection of features.
I wonder how many will work?
Remember Longhorn. That turned out well.
aren't the Appletwatters getting their knickers in a twist?
O dear how sad, never mind.
There are X10 versions- they need X10 adapters for the power to the lamps though.

Re: Win8 SP1
Maybe it's exactly that, the ability to think sideways.

Re: Another SF scenario in the making

any anti-radiation drugs from those hippies on Skaro- didn't work for Roy Castle...
He killed the Start Button.
But he didn't make sure it was dead, and just like in the movies, it came back and killed him.
"Their customers have not been screaming for a Start Menu."
True. They are Win8 customers, and therefore merely screaming because of that.
This seems rather half-arsed
and I don't think it will satisfy the requirements of the masses.
"Nothing that will convince a kid that's never worn glasses or a band to wear one* - until we stick a half-eaten fruit logo on it?
He's also never heard of sunglasses...
If you do run W8 or another Legacy OS, would that make them LegOS Brix?
