QuoteThe new Windows Update is very aggressive at making sure you are forced to reboot to install updates, etc... using a whole screen notification with a mandate instead of a dismissive option.
QuoteThey'd prefer you buy a new model
Quote from: BenYeeHua on December 31, 2012, 06:32:25 AMI don't saw this everytimes I update it, did you has a screenshots of it?And ya, keep up-to-date is important. ----The BIOS also update, and it update Graphic card BIOS, maybe it can prevent this problem (for the person without update) too.And most people don't like windows update, they always say it causing BIOS. ----But the problem is, the new model don't giving "BIG" performance/power consumption change.----And wish you has a Happy New Year.
QuoteYes, The nice thing with newer MB (Asus Z77) is you now can flash from within bios , from windows and from system off mode with USB stick in back of MB (flashback mode) .

Quote from: Hotrod on January 19, 2013, 06:14:42 PMThis looks really good. I am very much Anti-Windows 8, but this makes me begin to consider it as an option. The only thing I am wary of is if/when Microsoft decides to cock-block this as they tried to do previously.
Quote from: BenYeeHua on January 19, 2013, 11:02:41 PMYa, and I will like to see what Microsoft will do for the windows blue(9) when they get so many user hate the metro.Free upgrade?2 start menu?

Quote from: edkiefer on January 20, 2013, 08:56:38 AMYes, I could never understand why MS didn't have 2 versions, one for desktop and maybe laptops then one for tablets etc with touch screens . There trying to cover to much of product area with one OS .Now there cranking up the prices too .
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on January 24, 2013, 08:04:01 PMTo add to Windows 8 annoyances... it is easy to inadvertently have a file opened in Metro, causing it to lock the file. You won't notice while in the traditional shell. The same is true vice-versa.For instance, the other day I was 'downloading to PDF' from Google Docs. Well, the Adobe PDF reader, a Metro app, would hold a PDF open in Metro when I viewed it. If I wanted to replace that file, I had to switch to Metro, close the file in the PDF viewer, then update the file.

Quote from: Phil on February 19, 2013, 10:17:51 AMI have Windows 8 Pro x64 on my laptop (upgraded from Windows 7) and the overall schematics of the OS is fantastic. Juxtaposing Desktop / Modern UI apps can sometimes be an nuisance but the added enhancements such as the revamped Task Manager to the file ribbon in Explorer are nice. People who say they want the Start Menu back, uh... it's already there! Just a simple hover on the left edge of the screen or clicking the Windows key and viola, you're in the Start screen. But I can understand people's gripes for that change and others due to what someone stated earlier in this thread, which are habits.
Quote from: Jeremy Collake on February 19, 2013, 04:26:44 PMYea, it's all about the flip of the screen for me. I suppose it makes sense to do that for most users who are launching some new application and will be totally emersed in it. However, for me, having several things running, I may very well be launching something to compliment a program already in use. The flip of the screen is a distraction to me.

Quote from: edkiefer on April 09, 2013, 10:12:14 AMI guess that depends on whats installed an running .My Win7 uses around 1.10GB at desktop , 2.2GB if Palemoon running (30+ tabs ) .
Quote from: edkiefer on April 09, 2013, 01:23:00 PMYes, your right .I am not a fan of sleep/hibernation (energy saving modes) so I normally shut system down at night unless DL'ing some big .
