You're are joking right.i have read horrible things about Windows 8 and it sounds as if the OS is badly suited for what I need, which is an Office-intensive desktop environment.
I'm on Windows 7, which in several respects is a step backwards from XP particularly in user control of the system. i've had many difficulties with Windows 7 that I never had with XP.
but -- such is microsoft. a horrible company with shoddy products and little respect for user needs and habits.
Congress, instead of investigating crap like steroids in major league baseball, should be investigating Microsoft and how it can be allowed to produce shoddy products that frustrate and infuriate users and needlessly hurt business productivity
