Expecting to hear a whole lot more about Windows 8 ......

A colleague has just bought an Acer desktop with Win8 pre-loaded. His answer? He's installed a 256Gb SSD drive and a 2TB hard drive (for storage), installed Win 7 64 bit on the SSD drive and he's disconnected and "parked" the original Win8 hard drive just in case he ever wants to try Windows 8 in the future. Judging from the expletives he's used in describing Microsoft's flagship OS I don't think that's going to happen any time soon. I can see Microsoft going down the gurgler over this OS.

I've been using Win 7 for a while (but had to force myself). Windows 7 is a clever OS but the user interface and changes to Windows Explorer (after XP) are woeful. With every new OS they bring out, there's a new layer of complexity and the operator loses a little bit more control. The idiots have it b-ass ackwards!!
