  • What massive price hike?  I've still yet to see even the slightest credible indication that this is something that Microsoft is actually planning.  Right now it's just a lot of bellyaching over ...
  • I've only seen wild speculation to this effect.  Microsoft has said that they want to start offering certain services (such as all the extras that Office 365 gets you in comparison to a standard ...
  • What other ways?  That was definitely an endovascular approach in your video, and a search for St Paul's doesn't yield much beyond information about their TAVI stuff.  I'm just curious what other ...
  • If you don't like the idea of expanding the Taskbar to get this done, there is another option.  (This is from Windows 8.1, but should be almost identical in 7) 1) Find your "Region" settings.  (I'd ...
  • And yet, the Classic Shell program was MADE for Windows 7 (well, Vista, but they're really the same thing). As for what you wrote, it works fine in Windows 8.1 w/o Classic Shell (as will basically ...
  • Actually, the desktop version is free too. http://www.onenote.com/Download Onenote is an amazing piece of software.  Highly recommended.
  • Replied in not applicable
    It is quite impossible for the human mind to "actually visualize" infinity.  While we may be able to conceptualize what such a thing might entail, and the consequences thereof, it remains ...
  • Well, there are numerous devices out there using Intel Atom chips.  These will allow you to run any program you can run on a traditional (Windows) desktop.  Granted, they won't be quite up to ...
  • Wow...you sure wrangled that computer. What does this even mean?  What have you tried to use Bing for and failed to get results?  It is simply a search engine which, in my experience, delivers ...
  • It is obscene.  But honestly, that's what you get for ever dealing with HP for anything but a printer. Fortunately, the option to create your own install medium is included in the Windows 8 install ...
  • No, but like I said you can have it auto hide when you aren't using it.  That way it acts essentially as a horizontal, graphical menu system. Yeah?  Putting a huge number of the most commonly used ...
  • The Ribbon was actually a reaction to a study.  Microsoft found that a rather significant majority of the most requested features for their Office applications were already available but unknown ...
  • The mini industry of moding the Windows interface existed long before Windows 8.  In fact, the makers of both Classic Shell and Start-8 both got their start making alternates for Windows 7 and ...
  • Replied in It sucketh
    I don't mean to denigrate the programmers who create the progress bars.  It seems to me that it would be a rather complex problem to solve.  And your point about getting to know where it hangs for ...
  • Replied in It sucketh
    Perhaps you post to some other forum where this is true.  Around here, the threads you start all share the common theme of doom and gloom over the idiocy of all decisions Microsoft.  And you will ...
  • Replied in It sucketh
    Wow, what a malcontent you are (is that perhaps the origin of your user name?).  Every little difference you see in Windows is a glaring example of incompetence but your Apple stuff is missing ...
  • Different dev teams working at different speeds.  Happens all the time, especially at MS.
  • That is simply, and blatantly, false.  The desktop environment in Windows 8 functions exactly the same as it has for 20 years when it comes to handling multiple windows, opening files, and all ...
  • I think, instead, they figured that 'productivity users' and 'IT professionals' would be able to simply click the 'Desktop' tile and move on with their lives as they always had.
  • I only equate your 'expertise' in the field of ux design to that of the average user.  I'm sure you are far more than average when it comes to ledger/accounting/payroll/database etc. However, as ...
