Many used to moan that Windows did not have enough bundled in!

If you look at the history they often don't install - then, at some point later, they may do. Or, in some cases, they're just superseded.

My sentiments too. Assuming we do get a hung parliament it will be fun seeing what (if anything) emerges.

There's the idea that kids today have shorter attention spans, hence just 30 minutes.

As a youngster I don't recall getting bored watching the "long" Thunderbirds episodes. Quite the contrary. :)

I don't see a problem with this. If it pops up once and then you can choose not to be notified again that's fine. Or if it pops up again in, say, 10 months after general availability.
