I swear some of you are like old people clinging to their VCRs when DVD was invented.

"But how do I rewind it? Now I can't use my rewinder!"
"The box are was bigger on the tapes! I liked that!"
"TOO MANY BUTTONS NOOOOO!"
"I CAN'T RECORD MY STORIES NOW!"
"Which way does this thing go in? I'M CONFUSED!"
"THERE IS NO CLOCK FLASHING 12:00 NOW! I MISS THAT!"
"Where's the record button?"
"THIS CHAPTER SKIP BUTTON SCARES ME AND IT'S UGLY!"
"I don't want this! I liked what I had!"
"This is a conspiracy! They're trying to make us buy new TVs!"
"But home video and computers are two different functions! WHY USE THE SAME FORMAT?"
"MAH REMOTE IS DIFFERENT. MAH BUTTONS ARE NOT LIKE BEFORE! THIS SUCKS!"

jso2897: KRSESQ: Pokey.Clyde: KRSESQ: 99% of Windows users have the computer understanding of a child

And this right here shows you have no business working with other people.

Prove me wrong.

He didn't say you were "wrong" - he said you are unfit to work with other people, and you just proved that yourself.
Asperger's, ego, and emotional immaturity - the trifecta of IT drones everywhere.
And these people wonder why no one likes them, and why us marketing guys enjoy having them fired on a whim.

LasersHurt: Right click the start button. Press start and start typing. There, now you can find everything.


LOL.  Yeah, it's just like DOS or a Unix command shell.  You just have to remember the names of your programs, and type them in.  It's insanely convenient!

Some Bass Playing Guy: I really don't get all the hate. All people need to do is install a start menu replacement that Win8 works exactly like Win7, except with a bunch of under the hood improvements.


All people need to do is install Windows 7.

Also, may I add:

THEY'RE NOT F*CKING APPS, THEY ARE PROGRAMS, AND AN OS SHOULD NOT JUST BE A WALLED GARDEN APP-DELIVERY SYSTEM.

Ugh.  I just got a new laptop from a Black Friday deal on NewEgg, and it came with 8.

I almost shot myself dealing with frustrations. It treats me like I am a child, and hides all deep functionality from me. I've been using Windows since 3.1, so by this time I'm a goddamn power user. But suddenly I feel like a complete idiot. I spent almost two minutes searching for the goddamn Windows Update. I had to go online to figure out where the hell the Control Panel was stored.

8.1 is a slight improvement, and now that I've set it to boot to Desktop and reinstalled the  actual start button, things have gone from teeth-grinding frustration to mere occasional annoyance. But then I find out that the default PDF reader is an "app" and shunts me over into the entirely different Metro closed-garden system, and I get annoyed all over again.
