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!

Learning something new probably won't hurt anyone here.


Or if, you know, transsexuals or transvestites weren't referred to as revolting and disgusting. Or compared to computer UI's. Or if in the attempt to correct the first bigot's faulty analogy someone comes along and thinks it is humorous or worthwhile to explain why the bigoted analogy is faulty by exposing its technical incorrectness with an objectifying foray into human anatomy.

"Look at Nokia's N9 UI and how well it goes with that stunning hardware! It's like a blissful, successful, heteronormative marriage between a male who has the right jiggly bits and a female who has her own right jiggly bits! Because the first set of jiggly bits fill with blood when the male sees the female's jiggly bits and become stiffened which allows for the stimulation and internal lubrication of the female's not-so-jiggly bits, which allow for the entry of the stiff penis into her! What a great UI concept!"

I don't get your point. You're angry because you learned something new?

Not at all, my criticism wasn't directed toward you, it was for 1c3d0g and r_a_trip but replying to your comment was a reasonable place to make my own. Sorry if I gave you that impression.

Just the opposite, I wish more people knew transsexuals and transvestites personally. Maybe then it would be harder to use them as the intolerant-example-du-jour.
