Looks better than Win8 but nowhere near Win7 or even Vista.
I would say Windows 8 looks like something designed in a communist country but even the North Koreans know enough to rip off MacOS!
Bring back Aereo! Since I'm not a gamer my GPU is suffering from severe boredom.
I hope WindowBlinds is ported to 10 quickly. That and a start menu replacement is the only way I can stand windows 8!

Movies have already started to skip DVD. Ishtar, for example, is on Blu-ray but not DVD. You'll notice the difference between Blu-ray and no movie at all unless perhaps you're deafblind.

Do you have any examples of this other than one of the biggest bombs Hollywood ever made? It probably was never released on DVD due to dismal VHS sales.

That's like confusing the right to bare arms with the right to obtain nuclear weapons.

It should be noted that we DO have a right to wear short-sleeved shirts (weather permitting), and that it has little or nothing to do with the Right to Bear Arms....

We have a right to bear arms? What would I do with a bear arm? Doesn't the bear need it more than I do?

We can predict everything, except the future.
