    Windows 8 Users to Get Free Upgrade to Windows 9

    It is fairly hilarious that people complain about metro in regards to training and such. Think about this. If average-person/thingy goes out and buys a new machine, Currently he/she/it will get a machine with (most likely) windows 8.1 on it. Meaning that he will train himself/herself/itself...

    Next Unreal Tournament Game Will Be Free

    Well, when people act like they forgot both their reading glasses and their logical/analytical brain at home, then senile old fart actually describes em fairly well. Its a bit nicer than just calling them crackheads. Age is supposed to give you some experience. Experience "should" tell...

    Next Unreal Tournament Game Will Be Free

    You need to go back and read the article then, its not "Free 2 Play", its "Free" heck of a difference.

    Next Unreal Tournament Game Will Be Free

    Hmm, if "prejudice" is a valid argument, then sure! All I see in this thread (so far) is a bunch of people that are "certain" that something someone else once did, is the exact same thing that EVERYONE will do for eternity. Which imho is just a tiny bit silly. Why not? There is the...

    Jeebus, is this the thread for the old-senile-farts-stuck-in-a-rut-thought-wise? It sure as heck sounds like it.

    Cooler Master Glacer 240L AIO Liquid CPU Cooler Review @ [H]

    on page 1 Load Load temperatures will be recorded after a twenty minute period of 100% load. To obtain this load we will be using AIDA64 Extreme Edition v3.00.2500. This places an even greater load on the CPU than before and includes some benefits. Because the load is so extreme we see...

    Steam Controller Demonstration

    gah, forgot about the lack of edit in this part of the forum http://www.hostfile.nl/fpimages/po1twa4ep9/16198/valve-controller-video-hd-link.jpg.html that one should work better than the first link.

    MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING LGA 1150 Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Hmm, i must admit i dont quite understand how Hardocp can give a product which isnt available to the userbase a gold reward. You (the reviewers) mentioned yourself that you tested with a bios version that isnt available to the public. Any comment on this ?

    Windows 8.1 Hands-On Preview

    The "detail" you are forgetting here is that its never a good idea to ask people what people want. Heck, most people cant tell you the difference between their head and their arse.

    Windows 8.1 Hands-On Preview

    As i said, its a "part" of it :) not that is like that everywhere. And obviously there are more "sides" to the situation than the 2 i listed :) The "detail" that quite a few people "miss" is that for there to be any change in how people/systems "act" someone has to "do/act" first.

    Windows 8.1 Hands-On Preview

    Well, the "problem" is many fold on one side of it, we have the managers/admins that dont want change and with that in mind, are passive aggresive about it when their users ask about change. another side is: managers/admins telling users how "sorry" they feel for them when they use...

    Windows 8.1 Hands-On Preview

    Not much can be done in situations like what you describe. People that are "blind" will stay "blind". People think its the "cool/smart/intelligent" thing to do when they complain/whine/moan about win8, so be it, if they want to showcase their own lack of "whatever-you-want-to-call-it", let...

    Windows 8.1 Hands-On Preview

    Little "detail" to think about. If MS did what you suggest and changed the UI little by little. We would have the "pleasure" of software being around 10years after it was made and people whining about it not working on their new fancy pansy machine. :/ MS doesnt have a "right" choice...

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Instead of the 3*3½ why not go with 2 but turned on their sides instead ? at that point, you could also mount 1-2 2½ drives on the sides of the mount for the 3½ drives. I hope that makes sense :) and yes, i know it kills airflow, but the real question is how much it kills it, and if the...

    Minecraft Will Not be Certified for Windows 8

    Ofc there is a pull in the direction of an App store from Microsofts side. They are a company they want to make money. What people for some rather annoying reason seem to forget is this windows 8 x86/x64 is NOT windowsRT Yes, windowsRT will not have a desktop and it hasnt stopped a...

    Survey: 53% of Windows 8 Users Prefer Windows 7

    No idea what hardware you are running on, but on the bucket (e6300,6gigs,7200rpm OS drive) of parts im running it on, its winkey -> type device -> change to the settings "pane" on the right, and its there. and while typing device the "results" are updated instantly, so i have absolutely...

    Survey: 53% of Windows 8 Users Prefer Windows 7

    Why is it that MOST lists like this one exclude Windows 2000 ? Could it be because it doesnt into the list makers "view" ? nooooooo...... say it isnt so.

    Microsoft Unveils A New Look

    Well, in regards to the "blue", so far, the applications/services under the "blue" umbrella are all the ones that they need to integrate into the OS itself to make it a "full" service. insofar as aiming to have a single OS with everything in it goes.

    Microsoft Unveils A New Look

    Well, it could be that way, but it just seems too "small" a collection, and most of them are as you pointed out with Hotmail, integrated in something else or with something else. Skydrive fx is quite a big part of "windows" itself, and wouldnt Bing be under the azure aka "blue" brand ?

    This will most likely sound like im trolling, but im actually curious if you have used Windows 8 yourself ? Because, as it is right now, the desktop a single click/keypress away.

    Microsoft Unveils A New Look

    Except that office is "red" in the video, so that leaves "yellow" as a free color. So, as someone else asked earlier, any guesses on what "yellow" covers in their portfolio ?

    Windows 8: A Design Disaster

    You are the first but sadly not the last in this thread that for some reason ignore the ability to just type what you are looking for. As is mentioned other places in this thread, this is NOT a new feature. But for the love of something to hit people with, it sure as heck is ignored a lot.

    Windows 8 Release Candidate in Late May-Early June?

    Why is it that users on the hardest forum on the web are such a collection of whiners about something that a couple of simple keyboard shortcuts can fix ? notably i can mention these: win+r, win+d, win+e, win+x and win+c For the whiners: What exactly are you using your machines for ? staring...
