At worst, it is losing its lead over its chipmaker rivals

Run Windows 10 on your existing PC you say, Microsoft? Hmmm.

Re: Ha

But the minimum requirements aren't ballooning, are they? Win10 requirements are the same as Win7 so they've been the same for nearly 6 years.

Wow 'AllJoyn' is pretty much the worst name for anything I've heard in a while. Apart from a kid at my daughter's school who's named Cash.

Having received my Ice Blue at the weekend, I can tell you, "not at all". It glows faintly in a darkened room. Disappointed, having forked out 15 quid (including post).

Re: The pretentious load of old bollocks award

It's a movie of a Talking Heads concert. If you were expecting a story or character development (or don't like Talking Heads) you went to the wrong place.

Re: Is it not ethically and maybe legally questionable to provide this reg hack?

For you maybe.. F3 and F:NV (via Steam) run just great on my Win7 (and now Win8) machine. Did Steam release a patch for it maybe?

FFS. I did the first update from the Store - easy. Then when Update 1 was released it popped up and installed in a couple of minutes. How do you people cope when something really bad happens?

+1 for Worms

Don't like the new 'pretty' versions with trillions of weapons but the PlayStation port of the original version still gives endless hours of hilarity (especially with with Banzai Mode, Sheep and Banana Bombs enabled)

Also great fun was 4-on-screen Timesplitters, with sneaky peeking at the other players of course :)

And I got all my mates into Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, one of the best multiplayers ever!

Partner firms: Microsoft kept Surface from you for YOUR OWN GOOD

Paul Westerman
Windows

Re: Go grab market, kill competition ....

I was thinking the same thing. I'd snap up a couple of Surface 1's for £99 and while in the short term it would take sales away from the Surface 2, it would massively grow the RT user base and would be good for the platform and its Store. I don't think it would do much damage to what's already a rather beleaguered brand. C'mon Satya, make a bold first move!

Modern apps

I got Win8 early on and started off using the 'modern' apps for email, FB, news etc. I've found that I've slowly and subconsciously moved back to doing everything on the desktop. I've also installed Start8. I did try TIFKAM but it's just too difficult and frustrating to do what you need to do. Win8 itself is brilliant though - rock solid and very fast.
