Microsoft quietly emits patch to undo its earlier patch that broke Windows 10 networking

Re: supporting my elderly father with his windows 10 machine

Also having worked in IT for 20 years, my colleagues and I hate anything Apple in a business environment. The original poster is probably correct in saying he may of had 4 or 5 PC's during the ownership of the older Mac but he would of been able to afford them as Apple prices are ridiculous. They cannot these days be fixed or upgraded outside of the Apple store, which by the way, everything has to go back to!! Every tried getting an appointment urgently?

I'm not saying Windows is perfect....far from it. But for me, the cheaper equipment costs, the ability to maintain and upgrade "in -house" beats the "shiny-shiny" factor hands down.

Mac's may work well for a home/single user but networked in a mixed OS environment, they are about as much use as t*ts on a nun!

Why I just bought a MacBook Air instead of the new Pro


Re: FanBoi

I too think Apple need to get rid of the "you need to return it to the Apple store for a diagnostic" which involves a trip to - drop off, return trip and collect. Also the need to create an advanced appointment is a bit of a joke. I couldn't get one for at least 10 days for a recently troubled MacBook. So the crApple device was useless for over 2 weeks. This left our company having to buy another one to use in the meantime as well as the associated software etc.

I don't suppose with the newer fully integrated devices this is going to improve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not jumping on the Microsoft bandwagon (they too have similar devices) but a bit of upgradability would be nice.

Who wants to place a £10 bet that SP1 for Windows 8 allows you to turn off Metro and reinstate the Start button?

Does that mean they'd have SEALNAV? Could just imagine it now. "You have reached your destination" would take on a whole new meaning.

I thought that aircraft carrier as a unit of measurement was de-commisioned along with anything else with 'aircraft carrier' in the title for us Brits?
