Actually, some people really like it. I'm not one of those, but I do have it installed on another computer, just to try to learn it so I can help others with it. I have had little success so far, but will keep trying. Some people still hang on to XP, which I kind of liked, but 7 is much better. I just figure, each to his own. Use what suits you best. For me that would be Windows 7.

Translation?

I see you have installed Win 8. Well, that does it.

You have lost all credibility with me. Ugh!

I trust that you guys know by now that I joke a lot. I find that humor makes life a bit more comprehensible.

If I might be serious for a moment, I do consider Win 8 to be a huge mistake on the part of MS. It offers nothing that I can see - except something different to learn and more problems to solve. I used to chase the tail of the dragon, sometimes called upgrade fever, but I see both hardware and software to both be in a state of developmental stasis.

AMD hasn't a clue where it's going; and Intel only pretends to know. Linux is, and has been for too many years now, an empty promise. And Apple is nothing more than a hermetically sealed box with proprietary and quite expensive software - all of which has been designed for people who are too afraid to think.

And I would guess that I'm the only one who thinks that SSD's provide nothing exceptional, certainly no blazing speed increase as I expected. Why? Cause the OS and Programs are all bloatware (sorry, but DOS kicked butt).

---------

Note: That might seem a bit harsh. But it's what I feel now and represents my frustration with "Developmental Stasis".

------------------
So I'm holding with Win 7 64 bit Ultimate, my Crosshair V Formula (Extreme turned out to be a lump of overpriced cow dung), AMD 6-core black, and 16 GB of Corsair RAM.

However, I do have a Quantum Computer on order. But 'till then ....

You can always buy a new OEM with Windows 8 Pre-installed, & downgrade to Windows 7.

Thanks. I needed that. I must admit I'm a huge fan of British understatement and parody.

It's been a rather depressing week. But thanks to you folks, things are starting to head in the right direction.

I much appreciate all of you.

I do find this group a tad depressing though and somewhat hard on my ego. Anyway, it seems that everybody here is an actual "somebody", with me being a rather youngish sounding "junior member". Ah, the price of ignorance ...





Well, that will be something my psychiatrist and I can discuss in the next session, I guess.

Story of my life..I'm confused. I updated my BIOS as I was having a problem mentioned in one of the updates. I was using the Easyflash2 by Asus and the update succeeded but when it re-booted I got the awful news..boot mgr missing. Would my best bet be to just re-image? Thanks for your help.
