It would have been nice to have an offical start menu back into Windows 8. Although I find myself hating windows 8.1 a lot less as I got forced to using it for college, even if I really only use it to get into a virtual box to get into Linux :P) Still it sucks as I found myself using the pin the the start menu a lot more to access programs tfor everyday use and so no start menu no way to get that in 8.1

install the browser of choice and this only means you got a copy of 8.1 that was a bit cheaper without any real difference? Gotcha, besides not like the majority of computer users are still using IE so in truth this would only matter to the small perce=nt of users who both don't download a different browser or know/care to change the default search engine.

I never said I use the book or even ready it. Sure its not the high road, but its a personal statement I would make, try to screw people over with telling people how they can and can't use a book they paid for then see people torrent it instead giving you nothing.Besides I have a condition called being lazy and might not really go through with it anyways so...

The book had to have been lost in the mail, I know I sent it back out.

Well $200 for a book you can't keep, need to mail back (even if you get a digital version tho they can always revoke your rights to that as well) or I could torrent the book and save myself the headache and deny them the money...Screw it think I'll torrent that book even if I don't got the class I wanna do it just to spite them
