It seems like MS is trying to find ways not to blame Windows 8. I was a Windows user since 3.1 at the age of 5. I've used every version including XP Pro x64. I'm a pragmatist because I use computers for productivity. So when 8 came out with a consumption rather than production oriented UI it was time for a divorce. Yes I could have stuck with lovely 7 for a slow death but I wanted to hurt my Ex for ditching productivity. Productivity is the only place for my loyalty. Hate MS for trying to turn my work tool into a media consumption machine worse than a Mac? Yes, I think I will. Long live the Cinnamon / KDE.

I'm not sure how many of my neighbors were fooled by this. But I've been using it for about three years now in 4 different apartments.
I built my first system when I was 13 but my family has had a computer since I was 4. There is an order of magnitude difference between the two. I'm going with my family's first system which just happens to be 1000x from 8MB to 8GB, even though my current system is four years old.
Maybe Elon Musk will be our Zefram Cochrane. But we're still pre-warp civilization so we're going to have to wait a little while longer.
Inhuman practices by research groups gives science a bad name, even if you feel it is mere public perception. This will help science more that it hurts it given advances in simulation and lab grown tissue methods of research. The more social traction we can get the better.
