Every time this topic comes up, someone like you mentions how you can disable every single "spying" thing... but fail to provide specific details about how/where to do so. Occasionally, they'll tell you to "google it" or "look it up yourself." I find that very curious.

Comment Not a true test (Score 1) 537

Everyone knows that children younger than five are adept at learning nearly anything you wish to teach them. So this isn't a true test of how easy Win8 is to use. To make a legitimate test, you'd have to select a person (or group of people) whose age is well beyond the toddler stage and, most likely, a senior citizen who's never used a computer before. THEN you might have the basis for a legitimate test. Of course, the test will have to be more than just opening a video or picture album. You'd have to prove usability in several common areas such as email, web, video chat and the like.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
