    that's also what i thought of.

    And why are people so opposed to change? what is wrong with rethinking how you use the OS on your desktop/laptop? i personally think that 8.1 is far better than previous versions of windows when it comes to user experience. Once you set it to boot to desktop, it is a great OS.
