How much is MS paying you?

Yep, Starkers..........Everything flies faster on 8 on my rig...........No complaints here.
Pleased to hear it. It's like I've said to a few people, give it a fair go and you might find you actually like it. I mean, if you set it up right, it is no different to Win 7... just faster and crisper to use. I have a nephew who kept bitching about Win 8 a and what a pig it is, so when he was here last I let him have a dabble on my spare rig with Win 8.1 installed. I soon had hime eating his words.
"Now that's more like it," he exclaimed: " a decent OS with a decent start menu. See, I told you you'd go back to Win 7."
After he'd been on it a while and had sung it's praises over Win 7, I said: "Adrian, press the Windows key and see what happens."
Yeah, well, the Metro Start Screen popped up, didn't it. Hehe, I had him back-pedalling and making all sorts of excuses to worm his way out of it. As it so happens, Ady has installed Win 8 on his home PC and is loving it. Hehe, all that hate for nothing.
Quoting starkers, reply 7Now why would yer wanna go n' do that? Silly man! All that work to set up Win 7 and all the proggies again?Actually, I should have said, I still have 7 installed, along with all my programs and settings. Dual booted with 8.1 and 8.1 is my main OS.
Yeah, orright, dual booting with Win 7 is okay if you need it [skinning, etc], but I don't need it so just have 8.1 on my rig, and 8.1 on my 2nd rig, but I still have my copies of Win 7 if ever I need to install it. Anyhow, you're probably aware that I was just fooling around with you, so I won't apologise or grovel on the ground and beg your forgiveness.
