Windows The Windows 8 blog has a post about the improvements in Windows 8's installation process. "For Windows 8, our goal was to continue to improve reliability while also improving the installation experience and raw performance. Not only did we want it to be rock solid, but also faster and easier to use." Thankfully, the features us geeks like are still there.

Judging by your comment, in your moral universe it's perfectly good that using proprietary software produces these outcomes:

1. a handful of people become obscenely rich e.g. Gates, Ellison, Allen etc.

2. countries in which the poorest couple of billion people live spend precious resources funneling even more money to these characters, instead of having the chance to use software freely in all sense of the word free.

Maybe you don't care about these issues. Maybe they're totally foreign to you. Maybe you are incapable of seeing beyond your own limited situation in life.
