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!

I find it difficult to believe that any reader of OSNews has ever met a beautiful woman in a bar and "taken her for a ride", much less that they're picky enough to subsequently regret it when it turns out she doesn't know C++.

Been there, done that. Twice, in fact. Don't recommend it, except as a learning experience.
