I just want to thank Microsoft for forcing me to update my computer, slightly changing the visual presentation of the internet whether I wanted it or not, logging me out of all the sites I visit (multiple times in some cases), making my computer freeze on me/crashing my computer (thereby forcing a hard boot), and just generally being an annoyance. Your track record shows a consistency that few companies could dream of matching!

Windows 8.  Proof that if it ain't broke (Windows 7), you aren't trying hard enough.

Windows 7 was the cats pajamas, IMHO.  Windows 8 looks like something designed by a 27 baboons pounding on keyboards in BASIC.

You mean the UI/UX team. The improvements under the hood in Windows 8 were pretty noticeable when I upgraded. It's the UI change that has everyone PO'd.

UI? User interface?  I'm using windoze 7, btw.  Also, the original SimCity still owns all.

Also, I wish my browser would stop autocorrecting things for me.  I'm gonna have to figure out how to turn that off.

Though I will say that my browser seems to be working less sluggishly today.

I must have been confused by Asteriktos' reference to "changing the visual presentation of the internet" to an OS upgrade. I haven't launched IE in forever, let alone upgrade it to 9.

No that's SimCity 2013. police

Edited to specify which version.

Or anything generally EA.  Which is funny, I've been a long devoted fan of NBA Live, even when NBA 2K has become the undisputed king of video game basketball.  They actually came up with a decent product with NBA Live 2010, then decided to start from the ground up and introduce a groundbreaking new way to play NBA basketball video games.  They haven't released a product since.  Elite 11 was shelved, 2012 was a development year, then Live 13 also did not make it to store shelves.  It boggles my mind how they actually came up with a good product that they can build on, and then shelve it completely in favor of some concept that they cannot implement.

The difference here of course is Microsoft has cornered the market, while EA has been knocked off its perch a long time ago.

Dunno.... But he wouldn't have the blood of murdered children on his hands.  His son made an OS that without doubt changed computers, but even his son contributes to Planned Parenthood now.... Can't wait for linux to fully take the market.  It is definitely growing.

I just want to thank Microsoft again for all the fine work they do. In this particular post I want to give a shot out to the excellent Internet Explorer. I love how it's 2013, but they have still kept a certain quaint feature with IE, where I will close one browser and it will refresh and just generally screw up every other browser I have open.

IE would not work for me with a certain website (a Google-owned website...  Huh ), so I had to use Chrome. Maybe I still have other browsers on here, I don't recall, but that's the first one I saw. I was quickly reminded of some of the reasons I abandoned them and went back to IE.

Lord have Mercy upon me, a Sinner

I just want to thank Microsoft for forcing me to update my computer, slightly changing the visual presentation of the internet whether I wanted it or not, logging me out of all the sites I visit (multiple times in some cases), making my computer freeze on me/crashing my computer (thereby forcing a hard boot), and just generally being an annoyance. Your track record shows a consistency that few companies could dream of matching!

Now in the same boat. My windows XP Pro corrupted, can't use File Explorer properly. Tried to restore Backup Image to drive but this doesn't boot up past login. At least all my data stored on separate drive, and backed up to external drive.

Now just ordered Windows 8.1 from Amazon.
I hate Microsoft.
I hate Bill Gates.

What's the difference between MS Windows and a Trabant?
Answer: A Trabant doesn't need as many restarts!

Microsoft is just showing that they can be just as annoying as Adobe and Apple Smiley

 How is Apple annoying? I mean, outside of branding and prices of it's products. I've never had any Apple products but the ones that I've used have worked rather nicely. A lot more so than various Windows products.

Good point - I didn't actually check this.
The PC is  Dual Core Pentium, 4 GB ram, 250 GB Hard Disk, Direct X 9 compatible Graphics Card - I self-built it a few years ago - I am hoping it will be ok.
