I don't know who you are, but I wanted to say THANK YOU. I just got (against my express wishes)
a new laptop w/ Windows 8 and have been trying to set up a homegroup...
Spent days wandering in the desert and stumbled upon your advice to someone telling them to switch

probably violated the posting rules, but everything's quite complex on this site...
(I lived in SD for 30 years.....miss it sometimes, but not the traffic...)
