I am not planning on changing anything anytime soon, but a friend said she needed a new computer and was going to wait for Windows 8,,,,I thought maybe I should look as see what is going on with it....

Now mind you I am still unhappy because I can't have Outlook Express.....lol but I do like the glass like look of Vista and 7....

I found this article from the PCPitstop newsletter... PCPitstop is a site that geeks have sent people to for years for tools to keep the computer running better...

Here is the article....

I'm not even sure what a lot of those things are, so I won't miss them, and I probably won't miss the media player, because there are so many others available, but the Start button? What are they thinking?? My whole computer world runs off the Start button!

Something just struck me funny, I wonder if my grandpa said that when they told him that a new car didn't have a crank? LOL...What were they thinking?
