There are several brief comments, in other threads, regarding Windows 8. I do agree though, that this was a particularly long and unneeded rant about a non related OS.
To be fair though, it would be impossible for the Administrators and moderators to keep control, or censor, such posts. There are, already, for example, masses of posts here, on subjects which have absolutely not the slightest connection with the non-existent Windows 9.
As I said, too long and too dedicated to an observation of Windows 8, but it is common on other forums.
In fact, for example, only post #2 from phoneman has actually referred to the thread title here.
