Win 7 it is Mate and my thanks. About Hengis's cat. Is it the two or four legged variety?
Hengis has not only a cat but a fox too, the cat has four legs and the fox has two.
Oops! Talk about Big Brother watching. Inquiring minds and all that you know.
I rather figured it was something like that.
I wonder how much Microsoft paid the moron who has decided to shift the shut down menu after 30 years of being on a menu in the left hand bottom corner.
Now it's some where on the right hand side if you can find the trigger point with the mouse for a a pop out menu to appear.
I wouldn't concider that person a moron Mate. That puts him to high on the ladder of intelligence. What ruffles the old Lordy's feathers is the fact that the consumer is going to buy this doggie doo.
It's dogs doo all right LC, no offence Dom the Wonder Dog my four legged friend.
As I said previously I got another Win 7 disk for the new build a couple of weeks. I will make this the last computer running Windows that I will purchase
I still have a Win XP disk I can use as well....
Think I might start stockpiling copies of xp and 7.
@Arctos - Dom say no offense taken and agrees with you. As a matter of fact he gives you four paws and a tail wag.
@Pancake - That only works for so long. Linux is probably the way to go. Wine has come a long way in supporting MS programs.
Great plan! Windows 9 anyone?
I installed WIndows 8 on my Virtual Machine this weekend and loving every single bit of it. Jezus, I worked this out within less than a minute, in fact it was about 10 seconds... how to shut down Windows 8. What is wrong with these people. It is not rocket science, Attention to detail is what is needed. I can see the reason why Microsoft has integrated the shutdown in this way and make sense. Maybe Microsoft need to be a little more precise about how to close down Windows 8...?
Linux is definitely the way to go mate, especially now as Ubuntu & the Linux foundation adds more adoption with Android.
I agree Linux is easy as putting your socks on your feet...!
Windows 8 is to Windows 7 as Windows Vista is to Windows XP. It brings many new changes, some will accept, others won't. I dislike it, but once you learn how to use it it is easy. I do hate that Microsoft won't at least give us the OPTION to use the start button. The fact that they are forcing us to not be able to even use a custom one shows that they don't care about the people who don't like change. While change can be good for innovation, you cannot just say "sorry to the 50% of our buyers that don't like change, you all suck."
Windows 7 basically just came out. Major businesses LITERALLY just finished upgrading to it. This past school year was the first year my school used Windows 7 as the standard in all computers. It is one thing Microsoft thinks Windows 8 will succeed, but another thing to FORCE change on people when things already work fine. I like some of the new ideas, but you need to allow the ones that like the start button to at least use a custom one.
Windows 8 is going to bomb hard, especially in the industry, where Win 8 offers NOTHING new over Windows 7. When I buy my next laptop with Windows 7, I STILL won't take the $15 dollar upgrade to Windows 8. I won't even use it for free; give it to me and I'll re sell it on ebay. You will see a lot of threads coming up on this website called "Downgrade to Windows 7" once computers start getting sold with Windows 8 pre-installed.
