Are these the glasses that AVG big-wigs wear when they set up their affiliate toolbar installer program, or the "AVG Secure Seal" badges they use to endorse malware sites as "secure"?
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Neither can I, so I'll reply to your reply. I'm so glad that one web site in the world finally stops wasting my screen real estate. The width is actually used for content, not cruft! And once side navigation is scroll past, the comments actually take up the width of my screen. It's like someone who actually uses web sites finally designed on.

These don't work. Many UK government web sites use Google Analytics et al.
Visiting just the healthcare.gov web site via Firefox generates the following URL requests: http://pastebin.com/0UUbmRCf
At least all those advert and tracker sites - including those that have been helping pay for malware for over a decade - are using SSL!
Search in 8 to 7 certainly was certainly wider. Unfortunately the Amazon, Bing and other retailer hits for "Control Panel", "Printers", "Word" and "mmc" were never really that helpful.
"Features and services may be introduced and withdrawn without notice. Good luck relying on any of them at home or work."
Let's just stop installing these updates, they're clearly created by Microsoft with the express intent of committing acts of malice, not to improve their software.
Without even knowing what CBS is, that's quite a far-fetched conclusion. It's the Component-Based Storage sub-system, responsible for maintaining "packages", updates and verifying system source files, optional Windows components et cetera. Quite a wide-ranging sub-system and with so many responsibilities it is fair that it can generate large log files. I have used these logs with positive results on several customers in diagnosing Windows faults.
What the OP doesn't realise is how much background maintenance modern Windows performs. Just because a user has performed (redundant) manual defragmentation and (effectively unnecessary) disk clean-up doesn't mean that Windows will cease performing this automatic maintenance. A Windows system left idle after installation or updates (particularly the large updates Win 8 gets) will be quite busy for some time doing housekeeping.
I can't see anything wrong with any of the figures shown in that picture. Would you care to elucidate who's software you mean, in what way it's poorly written, and the symptoms that drew you to such a conclusion?
You made me feel like we're in the desert and I just went off on a slightly drunken rant. Did you see that oasis over there?
No, it's "Restrictions". I don't need obstacles that prevent me from consuming my legitimately-purchased media in the ways they were intended. These things don't manage my rights, they manage my restrictions.
My rights are that I get to play the game, listen to the music or use the program however the hell I want to. Whenever I want to, whether I'm online or not, and I get to do so without any corporate oversight.
