    This is cool. Thanks for posting this.

    These are the new UEFI BIOSs. Quite sophisticated.
    Perhaps after a time I'll decide not to hate them if they keep adding useful features like this.

    I'll hand them my phone with a "new contact" number field open for them to fill out.
    In Miami that would be the last you see of your phone.

    If you run to a cop and tell him what happened he will just say "Yeah! No sh*t!! This is Miami!

    I really don't want to play top dog, but this is Chicago. In some neighborhoods don't stop at stop signs otherwise you, any other occupants, and your car might disappear. Unfortunately all big cities are this way.

    On the subject of UEFI > There are pros and cons with anything. I just retired and plan on building a rig here in the near future. Early planning stages. Wondering if I should get a MOBO with a UEFI chip on it? Wondering why you dislike it. An OEM thing? Anyone?

    Also nice would be an html table report of the settings. Silly in the computer age to be scribbling BIOS settings with a pad and pencil like Jimmy Olson for The Daily Some Other Planet.
    That should be easily doable, you can do it on a Router for instance. You can save your settings to file, flash the router and then import them back in again without having to set it all up again.

    My bios does not have the option included.
    My laptop has UEFI but doesn't have any print screen option. That's a good sign though as you may actually get what you want, if you live long enough lol.

    For me...
    • A metro/modern UI off switch
    • A real start menu
    • Full Kinect integration so I can control the PC by waving my arms like a mad man.
    The first two, for sure.... as well as a commitment to further develop the desktop environment.... as opposed to putting all emphasis on tifkam...

    Thinking about it a bit, I think my greatest wish, is that they don't screw this up.

    Frankly, one gets weary having to maintain ones opposition to a specific thing, such as tifkam. Their attempted sleight-of-hand with the returning start button really only made things worse, as people in general don't like to be taken for fools.

    But, who knows. Maybe this was the plan all along. Push metro out... bound to get some fans and the whole hullabaloo surrounding it is, well, free publicity. (in the whole "any publicity is good publicity" vein)

    Point is, they know what has to be done, I just hope they give us all a freakin' break and do it right.

    But does the cop say "No sh*t! This is Chicago!" ?? No matter what you complain about here, be it psychotic drivers or just rude people, everyone says "This is Miami!" In fact I think there was a stand-up comic who did a bit about it a decade or so ago.

    I guess if MS can force/leverage everyone to play along it will be cool.. as long as other OS aren't prevented from conforming. Everything takes some adjustment.

    The days of MBR booting are numbered I guess. After reading a bit about GPT it's clearly superior. The extra partitions just seem strange at first. I don't hate it. With cheap massive storage something had to be done. I'm glad to see they left a lot of room for the future.

    I would like to see in the advanced options the automatically repair function actually work & repair the computer.

    Been reading up on it myself. It is far superior. The new MOBO will have it, although I probably won’t have a choice since it seems they’re all headed that way.

    http://www.uefi.org/

    http://www.ilovefreesoftware.com/17/...t-is-uefi.html

    I don’t see where MS is forcing anyone to conform. They’re just part of a forum that are developing tech that Intel and HP started with EFI. I don’t know what to say if other OSs can’t keep up with the tech pace.

    Quoting the Wikipedia article above:
    The original motivation for EFI came during early development of the first Intel–HP Itanium systems in the mid-1990s. BIOS limitations (such as 16-bit processor mode, 1 MB addressable space and PC AT hardware) were unacceptable for the larger server platforms Itanium was targeting.[6] The effort to address these concerns was initially called Intel Boot Initiative, which began in 1998[7] and was later renamed EFI.
