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....

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?

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!
