I do my fair share of pc related work for others. and I just finished, I
kid you not my 25th uninstall of windows 8. thats not just individuals

have the same sentiment, get this sh!t off my computer. they buy new
computers that come with windows 8 installed, but they dont have the
install disk. simple navigation is atrocious and a complete departure

microsoft seems to be getting out of the desktop business. its appears
pc users will have to go somewhere else or use older versions of

Which is like saying “we made our money out of selling food, let’s stop
selling food and go into arms dealing”
Microshaft is a company formed by deceit and sharp business tactics, it
would be nice if they were to go bust.
It’s pretty sad, because Windows XP is still the most intuitive and
efficient OS out there for working with files, in my experience. I do
most of my work on OSX nowadays. The only things I still use Windows for
I wish Microsoft would get back to what made Windows 2000 and XP so
good. It seems like when they try to make things “easy to use” they just
end up making it unpredictable and complicated.
