Microsoft Reacts To Feedback But Did They Get Windows 8.1 Right?

cwhicks Re:Start Button in 8.1 is useless. (543 comments)

Dude you must be trolling or work for MS because you have to KNOW what you are saying is all BS. So I am giving up after this, you win.

1. Why would I want to go to keyboard shortcuts in a graphical OS? Different has to be better or at least not moving in reverse. You are giving me inferior work arounds to get to features I had in 7.

2. Perfect! 4 little squares vs infinite full screen/half screen/quarter screen/ 1/16 screen, whichever I wanted, that I can switch between with the click of the mouse. Worse.

3. I don't want an app store at all. Microsoft does to make money. It is a shill for MS and again it does nothing for me.

As another poster stated, different/new is great if it does something better or gives me a better "something".

Microsoft Reacts To Feedback But Did They Get Windows 8.1 Right?

cwhicks Re:Start Button in 8.1 is useless. (543 comments)

1. I can turn it off and then how do I do anything? There is no other method.

2. That is two applications. I currently while typing, have 5 applications open. This can't be done.

3. I don't want to run in a browser, I want the native app. You are offering workarounds for an unusable desktop OS

You prove my point exactly. In all case, it is worse that 7. Thanks for the response anyway.

Unusable is the term I use. Tell me how it is better unless you are using a touch screen.

I want to do work. I don't want to all this touch screen, corners garbage. I want to have Chrome open, and the App store open at the same time. I can't do that. I have to switch between the Desktop and the "thingy" interface. Why? I have a huge screen for a reason, so that I can have multiple programs I am using open at one time. Anything that is written for windows 8 runs in the "thingy". I want Netflix running down in the corner on top of everything else. How do I do that? If there is a way to do it without a bunch of hacks, it is worse.

Telecom Companies Seek Retroactive Immunity

cwhicks Re:Darn... (177 comments)

I am sure that they are quite familiar of the constitution and had a very clear understanding of the laws dealing with wiretapping as they deal with warrants for information everyday.

They knew exactly what they were doing and that it was illegal.
