I've got problems regarding the validity of this story. If this problem have existed for 10+ years, the number of users potentially involved (100 of millions of laptop users, many of them decision takers and techies) would have escalated the issue long ago. Otherwise it must be a trojan horse inflicted by Google.
Re: @janimal Windows 8 was built for one reason only
I also use Mint (Cinnamon) for my old HP dv2 and it works well for general purpose tasks BUT there are still problems with Bluetooth and HDMI.
With the risk of being flamed I would like to state that I am quite happy using Win 8.1 on my Yoga 13 hybrid and using VMware for other OS's. IMHO nothing still beats the amount and quality of software developed for Windows.
KeePass is free, open source and you decide where you want your database of passwords located
I have been using a Logitech BT M555b mouse for 3½ years now with my ancient HP laptop and it works perfect, especially the fast scrolling function is great. I use two AA rechargeables and replace them every 4 weeks with about 12 hours of work/day. I definitely plan to migrate it to my Yoga
Am still happy with my Nokia E72 with 32 GB SDHC card and Sony Ericsson MW 600 Bluetooth headset....for + 2 years this combination has served it's purpose and am sure it will do for another year until WP comes off age.
I enjoy pushed Gmail and Google calendar, free navigation, fast browsing with Opera Mini and quite a few apps for S60 like Xchanger for up-to-date currency rates and Dropian, a near full featured Dropbox client and Podcatcher where I download my favourite talk radio shows
Am not happy that I cannot do transactions with my netbank and that BBC + Denmarks Radio r out of reach for video casting...I get most on Youtube though...ohhh and did I mention: Spotify works beautifully especially when I connect to my Bose Soundlink via bluetooth seamlessly.
