Well, if that's the future of Windows, I'll just stick to Windows 7 until it loses support, and then switch permanently to a Linux distro, likely Ubuntu or Mint. Windows 8 is a step back for desktop users. Windows Blue/9 seems to be half a step forward, but it's still half a step back.
I tried to make a deal with the Devil, once. Turns out I didn't have anything he wanted.
You will never find a more welcome hive of love and humility.
