what a piece of shit tho... i hate the direction operating systems are going. personaly i dont like this fancy graphical crap. im still running winxp with all the themes and visual effects turned off.

what are you gona do tho, this is the direction computers are going. computers are no longer going to be PCs like they are now. they are going to be "appliances." Every pc is going to be super simplified to be stupid friendly. Programs will no longer be like they are now. Everything will be an "app" or completely web based.
