It wouldn't be the first time they have tried to slam dunk MS however for any grievances with the software giant. EU hands down record $1.35 billion fine against Microsoft

Back in the late 90s they were fined a $1mil a day for not allowing competitors to offer browsers in Windows with MS having made sure IE was default. For a giant like MS however that is only a drop in the bucket based on their revenues!

And before I forget while keeping on the main topic, Will 90 percent of users always hate Windows 8?

Certainly the need to find a 3rd party app like Classic Shell for something people already expect to find in each version is the nasty idea someone at MS had for seeing 8 desktops look the same as the new tablet series while the RT gui was designed for tablet. The writer brings up a reference regarding "usability" when making the comparisons between the types of users. Experts, willing adopters(or willing to learn), and then the mainstream 90% novice users.
I just don't get this fine at all , I live in England and the EU are a bunch of -----well you get my point , anyone who has a computer / laptop with windows 7 on and and DOESN'T know their are other browsers out there.... well how can they not know , do they live on the moon? The EU just bully company's and governments and a total waste of tax payers money . When you buy a android phone you get the stock browser and it's up you if you feel like you want to try out other browsers available why is this any different? When I got my laptop 2 years ago it had that browser choice thinggie on it and I thought 'what is the point of this ?' of coarse I know there are other browsers out there and then proceeded to take it off my laptop because it was a waste of desktop space.

Seems like you are using logic and common sense. Governments (and some big businesses) don't necessarily apply the same thought process.

There have been over 500 updates released - only about 130 needed.

Works well for repair install also.

Might do a tutorial if there is enough interest.
Oh I think there will be enouth interest.

I can only think of about a half a dozen "off of the top of my head".
I wasn't including OEM versions in that number either.

I did say "... at least ...".

He puts back the code with a couple of very small .dll files. No services , no additional executables running.

His is only 3 bucks for 2 pc license.

StartIsBack - real start menu in Windows 8
I read something in the last couple of weeks about restoring the Start Menu.
That must be what I was thinking of.

You will neeed an install dvd - and you need to d/l the updates ( I will explain where from and which ones - it is pretty easy .

Just run the batch as admin and it does the job for you. It takes a while putting the updates in - then it will make the iso. You can go away for lunch and let is do it's thing.
Thanks for that.

Of course you can use it. But it was not my invention. SIW2 introduced the word.

Small bunch over there make a lot of noise, but can't talk any sense.

Wolfgang knows what I mean.
If you post anything less than fawning praise, prepared to be shouted at by rabid fanboys.

Generally they don't even read what you actually post.

Yeah right, the fanboys make noises for a whole army, but they are only a few. The majority of the eightforum members are still sane but most of them stay out of the discussion. It is too hyper.

Haven't really had a desire to go back if so. My tolerance for trolls and troll-like behavior is pretty small though so maybe its best I just take your alls word on it

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
