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.

Member since:

It has definitely crossed my mind, but I won't be eligible for an upgrade to the Note until next summer. I still have a Nexus S 4G on hand.

But, even with rooting a device you don't always get OS updates on the same schedule as the Nexus devices. I got spoiled on Jelly Bean when I used the Nexus S for several months.

I have updated mine 5 times already as newer ROMS are released with new fixes, that screen in a screen feature is great.
