Windows 8 is doing so bad they have to bring back the start button
Now that former Windows Division president Steven Sinofsky is out of the picture, there's speculation that Microsoft may add the traditional Start menu back into the Windows platform. Currently Microsoft isn't commenting on the subject, but an article published by USA Today points to the possibility.

Here is a list of 8 things to look for when trying to identify false flag psychological operations.
1. Staged events usually receive immediate national news coverage
2. There is a political agenda behind the coverage (gun control)
3. The incident inspires intense emotions (Dead kids)
4. Initial media reports conflict eyewitness accounts
5. No dead bodies are shown to the public
6. Celebrities are used to influence the public
7. Presence of mainstream media manipulation tactics
8. The Federal Government give attention to a local story

Question Everything.

When any institution is infiltrated by liberals, that institution no longer serves it's original purpose and instead becomes a social engineering vehicle to push a far left fascist agenda. Liberty and liberals are like oil and water.

Windows 8 sucks. Why was Microsoft in such a hurry to replace Windows 7? Windows 7 actually works and is not a pile of shit like Vista. Vista has become the Windows ME of the modern age. The only operating systems that Windows had that actually were worth a shit are Windows 95/98, Windows XP SP3, and Windows 7.

When Windows XP first came out it was a piece of shit, too. By SP3, almost the entire OS had been reprogrammed. Windows ME was a total disaster. At times, not even my Networking and Telecomm professor in college could get it to work right during class demonstrations. Windows Vista was another useless OS that no one wanted. It was harder to operate than its predecessor XP and had no better features. Finally, they get a decent level of success with Windows 7 and they replace it with a worthless pile of shit, Windows 8. Microsoft is a total joke now.

I think it's great. Much faster than Win7. At $40 a pop, it's a good deal.

Agree, they could have left the start button on the desktop. Stardock has a desktop start menu add-on for $5.

Anyone try running it in a VM yet? I run FreeBSD 9.0 and switching the actual computer over to Windows 8 would be like giving up a custom sportscar for a Yugo...but I would like to test it and it's always nice to be able to check development work on it.

Re: Windows 8 is doing so bad they have to bring back the start button
I guarantee you they will add the start button back. I work at a computer shop and knew that I would be seeing windows 8 pc's shortly so I installed a copy in virtual box. It's awful. It is probably an excellent tablet OS but it's a horrible desktop OS. So I downloaded a freeware start bar replacement and all of a sudden I had access to traditional components such as control panel and the like. That makes it okay. I will however most likely be using Windows 7 for a few more years.

Just looking at it I would not buy it. Never had a problem upgrading before but I don't want my desktop to act like a mobile device. I will keep 7 until 8 is dead and gone.

Reminds me of the guy who returns a chainsaw cause it didn't increase his output over his trusty axe. The manager helps him out and they go out back to test it and the manager starts it up and the guy says, "What's that noise?"

Yes, Windows 8 sucks. Windows XP SP3 was very stable. Free alternatives to the "missing" START button in Windows 8 are available - consider "Classic Shell"
