Windows Steve Ballmer has just announced that in the first three days of being on sale, more than 4 million people have bought the Windows 8 upgrade. This doesn't count OEM installations or Microsoft's own Surface - just individual upgrades. Definitely a promising start for Windows 8, but then, these are most likely enthusiasts (I'm one of those four million), so we still don't know a whole lot. I'm patiently waiting for the response from regular consumers.

What is hilarious, at least to me, is he isn't even using the word correctly! Its obvious what he is describing is "skipping" and NOT jitter, which was the way the old CRTs would "flicker" from EMF interference.

And most likely the reason he is suffering from video skipping is that "Mr Leet" has gotten himself so badly pwned that he has more viruses than his machine can possibly run, but he's too "leet" to admit he don't know what he's doing and needs help.

We ran into one of these "leet" Linux users at the shop, he actually had an email relay installed on his machine because he thought Linux was "magical" and never needed updating and got himself pwned.

I do think its funny his "dirty poo poo head" word is faggot, as that seems to be the favorite word along with the N word for halo playing HS dropouts everywhere. I personally enjoy pointing out the foolishness of little smart mouths like this, picturing him foaming at the mouth like Angry German Kid while he screams "FAGGOT!" at the screen is really funny. Look at the previous post on Win 8, he ended up posting no less than NINETEEN TIMES just to call me a dirty poo poo head...now THAT is funny!
