The Classic Control Panel In Windows May Be Gone

Lehk228 Re:Ugh - The "classic" control panel is the best. (158 comments)

stop finding, just type, the top right search bar from the control panel will find just about anything by name or description, just like the new start menu (winkey then type what you want)

as far as i am concerned win 7 is the pinnacle of the MS windows UI. I used 8 "metro"/"modern" once it was such utter shit i will never use it, steam OS is close enough I will switch to linux full time and only buy steam games that work on linux or wine.

Lehk228 Re:One crap audio brand battling with another (328 comments)

I am american, I would balk at spending $230 on headphones, right now I am using a $30 logitech USB headset, and to me that was pricey for headphones, but worth it because being USB it gets it's own sound device when plugged in and I can route certain sources to headphones while others still go to the speakers.

BlackBerry Launches Square-Screened Passport Phone

Lehk228 Re:Lacking developers. (189 comments)

Aapps are trivial to make for BB10 you can install android apps directly and a few modifications to the menu and it will fit in instead of feeling ported, native is "better" but integration with android runtime apps is quite seamless. Considering that the suits at blackberry seem chronically incapable of demonstrating competence despite the best efforts of engineering, I hope that they get bought whole by microsoft or samsung and not picket apart by scavengers when the time comes.
