Way too happy with 7 to switch to 8,don't care for what little I've seen of it anyway.

NO cloud for me either! No No No

The only place I don't really mind the cloud is when it comes to the speech recognition for searches on my phone.
That's about the limit of it though.

Count me in on Windows 3.1 with an old Packard Bell PC....I was soooo excited to sign on to Compuserve via dial up and surf the BBS systems at the time. Very simplistic but I was hooked on computers after that.

Had BASIC programming classes back in the early mid 80s in HS. DOS in college.


I think Win OS are very good, but I still have a real fondness for Linux.

Were you one of my high school students?

I actually wrote a Basic Programming computer course to teach. I had a Basics manual, the manual for the Texas Instrument 99 computer, and a Computer Science high school textbook, and I wrote the class syllabus myself.

We used donated television sets for the monitors, and Man! Everybody loved that class!

One thing I do remember was back when AOL gave you like 20 hours a month and charged additional for anything over.
I once went to bed and left the computer on. My dad damn near killed me when the bill came.

I helped wean quite a few users off of AOL when it no longer provided their internet and they finally realized the browser is an overstuffed turkey from which AIM and Favorites could be easily exported.

They would call AOL to terminate service and suddenly find themselves in an auction where AOL would bid itself down to $5 a month to try to keep them. Some had been paying $25 monthly for a dozen or more years, for nothing.

Getting rid of malware is easier than cleaning a bad case of AOL....

I agree with some of the previous comments I find some of the really tech stuff so hard to understand.


Me I just want to boot up and be able do some of the simpler fixes. I like the tuts in here and that they don't go into great depths of the machinations of codes and file systems.

I am Windows all the way and those toys that are now all the go I couldn't see them without a magnifying glass and I don't want to have to walk around with both in my pocket. Plus in any case (no pun) I like to get my grubbies into a machine and replace or adjust components - tablet no chance and drop it and hey the original cost later the front glass is right again!

Having said that I did at the suggestion of a member boot a machine into Ubuntu and while it was a bit like the place in my sig at least I was able to salvage docs and photos for someone which would have been lost. So in that sense a handy tool but tool only thank you.

My first days with a Windows 8 phone
I became adventurous and spent $79 for a Windows 8 phone. I said to myself what can you lose, I spent similar money for a USB stick. But what I can gain is some experience - as if I needed that at my age, LOL. My first impressions are mixed. There are really 3 parts to it. 1. The Nokia part...
