Dual boot? Are you like 80? Run a VM. On modern hardware you can easily run two OSes at once with undetectable performance hit. Spend a little extra on a SSD or extra spindles and RAM and you have no performance hit and you can easily switch back and forth.

I'm more concerned about the loss of features relating to the Start/Search. When I type "vi" I should see visual studio highlighted so I can smack ENTER and be on my way....but no, this feature no longer works! I have to click All Apps and manually scroll down (keyboard doesnt jump you to a certain alphabet). WTH?

The scientists say that more studies need to be done on this subject,

I wish they would study a way to convert the damn gas into something that is not debatable instead of running around getting everyone worked up so they can do more studies.

HR has lost us some awesome candidates. They did not understand or respect the level of demand in the market for the skills these people offered and I guess blindly assumed that they were just like them...dime-a-dozen useless sacks of shit. Took their sweet merry time (seeing to their paperwork and other various rote minutia) and lost the opportunity to hire.
