"Generally after 2 years of getting used to it, I can find things almost 75% as quickly as I could in the menu interface"
Two years later and still not as fast as you used to be. I call that UI design failure.
I don't remember anybody calling for an investigantion into Cheney and Halliburton during the Bush administration.
Where you on another planet?
Anti-gun zealots dont care about the facts or reason, they want any "ammunition" they can to support their narrow viewpoints.
Flying @ 14,000' elevation aint easy for a helicopter, and it gets *windy* up there at the top of Pikes Peak. Until the NTSB completes the investigation, any comments about what happened and whose fault it is would be pointless.

Since I know none of you will read the article, because it might get in the way of your circle jerk windows bashing:
"PC batteries expose information about battery capacity and health through the system firmware (or BIOS). There is a detailed specification for the firmware interface (ACPI), but at the most basic level, the hardware platform and firmware provide a number of read-only fields that describe the battery and its status. The firmware provides information on the battery including manufacturer, serial number, design capacity and last full charge capacity. The last two pieces of information--design capacity and last full charge capacity--are the information Windows 7 uses to determine how much the battery has naturally degraded. This information is read-only and there is no way for Windows 7 or any other OS to write, set or configure battery status information. In fact all of the battery actions of charging and discharging are completely controlled by the battery hardware. Windows only reports the battery information it reads from the system firmware. Some reports erroneously claimed Windows was modifying this information, which is definitely not possible."
