Windows "Microsoft today announced the global availability of its popular Windows operating system, Windows 8. Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store." I'm still not clear on what '12:01 AM local time' means, but if it means it goes on sale in every country on 12:01 AM, I'll be buying in a bit over an hour!

What's he gonna do, chisel the articles on stone?


He's been doing that just fine up until now without Windows 8.
Besides, Thom is clearly competent enough to use an alternative OS to post articles, if he should so desire.

many of us have better things to do with our time off than Google for fixes


Yeah, I got tired of that and stopped using Windows...
