I was thinking to myself a few days ago that on clay Rafa only has two players who can beat him - Novak and David. At the French I would reduce that to Novak (i.e., he has the best chance).

I bought my Win 7 desktop from a local system builder a few years ago and one thing that impressed me is that they delivered the PC to me fully patched.:)

Goes back to the desktop for me, so maybe Start is Back is doing something.

Interesting video. I agree it should go back to Modern UI. However, as I mostly use the desktop I don't mind.

Looks like you were unlucky there. Mine, bought two to three months ago, came with 8.1. Usable straight away.

Yes, this is also what I thought from day one, when I first started seeing the concepts for Windows 8. They should have hired me! :)

As a newbie I have Windows Phone. As I've not tried anything else I don't know how it compares (though I have recently acquired an iPad).

But I get the impression that iPhone users, when they want...

Doesn't matter. Android dominates in sales but Apple has 75% of mobile profits and about $150 billion cash. So long as it's existing base sticks with them they'll be fine.

Lots of punters in these forums (and elsewhere) hate Norton and McAfee with a vengeance. Expect to get lots of flak.:)

Some would say the ribbon was a disastrous Windows 8-style makeover but it doesn't seem to have done them any harm. The installed base for Office is so huge that it would probably require a series of...

If you buy a new laptop then it might come with a third party AV such as Norton and McAfee on 30-day trial. If you want to stick with it then you can. But if you...

I assume that, until Windows 9 is released, the Windows 8 threads won't stop. When Windows 9 is released maybe some new moans will emerge?

It wasn't quite clear from the OP whether the new Netbook was coming with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1. I assumed the former because they then asked about a free upgrade to 8.1.

I think if you have Windows 8 then you have to manually install Windows 8.1 (correct me if I'm wrong)? But it is free.

If Windows 8.1 is already on the system then it will auto-update to Windows 8.1...
