unique_parrot Not holding my breath... (1009 comments)

...since Microsoft want's a new "APPS" business model and consumers like me just want a fast, reliable operating system. These two don't get along very well (IMHO).

unique_parrot Re:Warflying (161 comments)

I've sold my parrotAR2 because it is just a toy.
Limited range (even with router-wifi extender).
Even a walkera ladybug with fpv will give you more fun.

Microsoft Admits Windows 8.1 Update May Bork Your Mouse, Promises a Fix

unique_parrot Re:a free service pack? no kidding? (326 comments)

Sorry, the above information is incorrect. I just found out (after same googling) that it is possible to install the 8.1 update without a registration if you switch the user account to "local user".
Although it would be better to just get a downloadable service pack without the market to put it on a usb stick...

Microsoft Admits Windows 8.1 Update May Bork Your Mouse, Promises a Fix

unique_parrot Re:Valid reasons? (326 comments)

Last week I installed win 7 sp1. All updates were under 1gb to download.
Today I got a new Notebook with win 8 from a friend to make it usable. After the first update (620 to 650mb (wtf? they can't tell you how big the updates are)) and an hour, hitting the button a second time it wants to download 1042mb (this time precise).
And this is without the 8.1 update. For now.
For me this makes win 8 look like a complete, rushed mess!
