My crappy computer finally died last week so I bought a new one with win8. It took a while to figure out how to get it out of the stupid tablet mode and into a traditional desktop mode. There are other changes that kinda suck and things are moved around but I've made my peace with it.
I got home today and my wife asks where all the 'cooch shots' came from. I played dumb and she showed me the computer. When you look at pictures with the new image viewer it tiles random pics from your computer as a background. My porn stash is tastefully hidden several layers deep with file names that sound technical and system related and my wife is nearly computer illiterate so I never worried about it before. Thanks for busting me, Windows 8!

Intrepid00: likefunbutnot: unyon: I can't think for the life of me why I'd ever use RDP to access mail.

Perhaps there are some security requirements for maintaining site security such that mail has to stay local?
Maybe he works one of those places where people email each other 200MB .PPTs or CD .ISOs?

HatMadeOfAss: //Linux sucks, get over it

Linux is really great, actually. It's a Swiss army knife of free functionality. Yes, it sucks that documentation isn't centralized and there's no standard for interfaces or presentation, but a Linux system in the right hands can work tens of thousands of dollars worth of miracles with minimal prodding, too.

Windows = Autobots

Linux = Deceptiocons

Any idiot can fix and use Windows, even Bumble Bee. Linux though usually is overlay complicated and only that snarky asshole Rumble knows how it actually works.

Apple = Gobots?

$15-40 is a deal if it can do that!

I see this thread didn't lack in people knocking down something they admittedly haven't even tried. Just riding the wave of "Windows 8 sucks" b/c it's the cool thing to do now.

It's actually only 3 but you can also have a 12 inch dick if you start taking measurements from your asshole

OnlyM3: I'd be willing to pay 15-40 bucks to never have to work on another windoze box.

You know you can just stop, right?  It's free to just not continue doing what you're doing.

xanadian: That assumes I'd want to "upgrade" to Windows 8 to begin with.

Windows 8 is the best version of Windows ever.

I will never get over the amazing, ignorance-fueled mass psychosis against this OS.

I think the XP box I built a few months ago to play Fallout 3/NV wouldn't play those games under 8. At least not as well as it has been.
