Windows Over the past few days, Microsoft has been talking about improvements made to Windows 8 on its 'Building Windows 8' blog at MSDN. Strangely enough, the improvements mentioned were either dealing with the classic desktop, or were demonstrated using the classic desktop - and not the fancy Metro user interface which is supposed to be Windows 8's big new thing. Today's post finally gives a little more detail about how the classic and Metro UI work together, but questions still remain.

hehe, I did the opposite the last day at school.
I replaced explorer.exe with calc.exe and my classmates did similar stuff to the rest of the computers, just to mess with the teachers who had to clean up our mess for next years students.. ;)

Ah, the good ol' times. ;)

Well, if they ran the things anything like my school district did, then it didn't really matter - the machines just got reimaged over the summer without any particular attention to the state of the computer.

Ghost is a wonderful tool. Rebuild one machine then fifteen minutes later the rest are pristine again. ;)

My friends and I would mess with the Windows 98 startup and shutdown screens. We would do it in the middle of the school year. I'm not sure if that makes us dumber or bolder.

The debian based clonezilla is my favorite ;)

Too bad windoze locks to its hardware.. That makes it a pretty useless OS in my opinion.
