w-wright Windows 8! (611 comments)

Nope I'm joking. I hate the Windows 8 UI. For me, its Openbox, XFCE and the old Windows 9x UI.

Ask Slashdot: Which VHS Player To Buy?

w-wright Sony (201 comments)

Get any major brand VCR (e.g. Sony, Panasonic etc) as they are usually quite good. To be honest, I have never seen a big difference between VCR's in terms of quality. However, I did once have a cheapo VCR (Only one in the Electrical Store) which did chew up a couple of tapes.

Ask Slashdot: Experiences With Free To Air Satellite TV?

w-wright Its pretty good! (219 comments)

My Nana and Grandad goes on Holiday a lot in their Caravan, they used to use Sky Satellite in the Caravan which they found to be very expensive. However, my Grandad then switched over to using a simple freesat system which suits their needs. It recieves BBC, ITV etc which is what they want! I did see on ebay a Satellite Box running Linux (I think it was called Dream Box) and I heard you could load decryption keys onto it for the Sky Channels. However, that is illegal!
