    Or they will buy a nice Alienware PC.

    The availability of PC games is pretty dismal around here. When I go into Staples or Future shop, there are rows and rows of console games, and next to nothing in the way of games for the PC. It's almost like it was an afterthought. Target didn't have any PC games at all. Walmart is almost as bad, what they do have for PC games is crap. If I want one I pretty much have to buy it online. The PC section in these stores is similar. Lots of laptops and tablets, and then a smattering of towers. Nothing I would call performance oriented either.

    I was referring more to the graphics on a PC, but here's a good video which expresses my point.

    Windows H8ters seem to take a perverse pleasure in posting their opinions on a website dedicated to the Windows 8 OS, even though they serve no useful purpose and I totally agree that it really gets old after a while.

    H8ters...?? Hell no..!!
    We're lovers. Lovers of the desktop environment. Lovers of the comprehensive start menu. Lovers of full powered applications. We love windows, and always have. That said, metro ain't windows.

    Why do you guys h8te windows...??

    (not as much fun when it's turned around, is it...??)

    You can still run full powered applications. You can get even more applications through the Windows App Store. So what's wrong with metro, what are you missing besides the old Start Menu?

    Frankly, I'm not missing anything. My setup is exactly how I like it.

    No, you weren't entirely wrong... I'm one of the ones less than thrilled by metro. Win8 works fine for me, as I simply added "Classic Shell" to the mix, and that make me a very happy camper.

    I still use the taskbar setup from winXP. I can't always explain what I like, but I know it when I see it. And vice versa, of course....
