Windows Microsoft has detailed Windows 8.1 - not a whole lot of information we didn't yet know from leaked builds, but this bit makes me happy: "The updated PC Settings in Windows 8.1 gives you access to all your settings on your device without having to go to the Control Panel on the desktop. You can do things like change your display resolution, set your power options, see the make and model of your PC, change the product key, let you run Windows Update, and even join a domain - all from PC Settings." Available as a preview late June, but no word on whether said preview release will be available for Windows RT as well.

Well, I choose Windows, even Windows 8, over Linux, so I hope you don't feel sorry for me.

He doesn't really feel sorry for you, he actually feels sorry for himself. "Look at me, I'm the resident nonconformist"

Its not unlike what happens when OSNews posts an article about Facebook or Twitter. You always have someone going on about how their life is so much better because they keep off of social networks.

Its great that in all his masochism he uses an operating system which actively aims to make things difficult to the end user, but beyond it being great for him, there's not much relevance to this thread.

In fairness, I think Win8 users are in the minorety on sites like these. Just as Linux users are going to be disproportionately higher on OSNews than most other news sites. So you can't really call him "the resident nonconformist". But that's just nitpicking ;)

That's just elitism. It happens with any topic; anti-Apple posts, anti-Google, anti-MS, anti-Linux, anti-social networks, blah blah blah. Sometimes people do it just because they feel they can't make a convincing argument without going overboard.

Now you're just posting the same elitist bullshit that you're criticizing the former poster of.
