Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

No? I figured that Server 2012 would also be used for workstations... I don't have much experience on the Windows end of things.

That really isn't done anymore outside of niche development situations. The advantage with 2k3 was that you could have a 64 bit workstation. Just a little FYI.

Thanks for the correction then, and good to know that our corporate pals are also getting the short end of the stick this time.

I'd describe it as broken shovel stick that Microsoft expects corporations to not only take without lube but also pretend to like and then pay money for it.
