i don't like how it takes up like 1/5 of your screen with this HUGEASS clock in the sidebar.

and it probably crashes harder than your average ValuJet flight.

supposedly, the next version of windows (after this) will be subscription-based. you pay microsoft to store your files and to use their programs over a very high-speed internet...that's worse than rape.

Mein god! That is truly nasty!

This qualifies for a "When Microsoft Designers Attack" documentary.

Hell, you´d expect they would try to level themselves a bit with Apple and their OSX, but no, they just have to go for the shitty-microsoft-does-not-care-since-we´ll-bundle-the-thing-anyway-in every-frigging-computer-from-here-to-2020 attitude.

Hell no! 2000 all the way for me ... and now I´m pissed off ... shouldn´t have opened this thread, it´s a designer pisser. Hehe

What's the difference between this and XP? I'll stick with my win2k...that is until Linux gets full pro audio support...then I'm out of here
