I'd love to see Facebook go the way of the Dodo. Hopefully it'd get that smug, untouchable look off Zuckerberg's face. Probably not though, with all the money he's made over the years.

I haven't installed a single rollup on either Windows 7 or 8.1 since they changed the Servicing model. Complete waste of time for Windows 7 anyway, as it's not even getting mainstream support...

I've used a mixture of Office 2007 and LibreOffice. Although I've leaned more towards LibreOffice these days. I use it more than Office now, so I'll probably remove Office altogether soon.
