I know a lot of folks are eager to find out when they will be able to get Windows 8.1. I am excited to share that starting at 12:00am on October 18th in New Zealand (that's 4:00am October 17th in Redmond), Windows 8.1 will begin rolling out worldwide as a free update for consumers on Windows 8 through the Windows Store. Windows 8.1 will also be available at retail and on new devices starting on October 18th by market. So mark your calendars!

I tried the latest version of Mint. Could not get Skype to work right, and my translation software does not work at all on it. conclusion: looks nice, but simply does not do what it has to do. Next!

That is my current approach to GNU/Linux and other alternative OSs.

Started with Slackware back in 1995 with the Linux 1.0.9 kernel and used most of the well know distributions since them. I even bought a few of them.

Nowadays life has other priorities and I don't have any longer the patience nor the time to waste hours tinkering a system to work on a laptop.

Either it works out of the box, or it is dumped right away.

Exactly how I feel, I used to buy OpenBSD CDs and merchandise to support the project. But I just don't have time and in my area most of the jobs are either C# or Java.

Oh and Gnome 3 isn't as bad as everyone makes out.
