Why didn't anybody stop him?
In practice, two people where allowed to take someones quite expensive laptop without being stopped. I was well prepared, but that didn't prevent my laptop from being stolen when I was "forced" to give up my laptop in the control.
The spellcheck is great, but the dictionary seems to be very old. It doesn't recognize words like URL, internet, or slashdot. At least it recognizes OPERA, though I'm sure that's only 'cause the other uses predate the browser. =)
It seems that some of your issues are limited to your specific installation. I've been using 9, switching to 10 only with the release of Beta 1, and I don't have most/any of the problems you describe:
Slashdot works fine, and has for a while, though it certainly suffered when they started working on this
As a fix, you might try a clean install (losing your precious profile data, sadly) or try it on another machine, as your OS may have something installed that causes trouble (like, say, microsoft products, heh)
