And what about...

W7 and W8 losing their way and deciding, out of the blue, that the network they have been talking to since they woke up, is now an "Unknown" network, and because of that it's "Public" and no you can't access the Internet because suddenly everything is unsafe because Windoze has gone all paranoid on you. Usually there would be a link under the park bench icon in the "Network and Sharing Center" to switch it back, but the depth of the O/S's paranoia has that option disabled. WTF!

When the user has to go in and change the MAC address of the NIC to get Windoze to re-recognize a network, one that it has been using for AGES, well... that's just crazy!
