    I now upgraded from WinXP to Win8. My question is, how the hell do I create a shortcut for my internet connection? Everytime I wish to go online, I have to enter all my details, Username, Password. It's annoying and cutting into my valuable time.

    Thx

    Bought an 8 computer two years ago. Returned it within a week. Bought a refurbished machine that had Windows 7 installed on it. Windows 8 sucks.

    What did you hate about it? I went from XP to this, so there's many, many changes..like everything.

    ive seen reviews for 8 and 10 and it just looks like shit.

    like why is there a need for such radical change? There is no need. Windows 7 is the last version that seems to be meant for a PC and not some suburban mom or faggit on their iPeriodPad.

    I spent a full week trying to adjust to 8. Very annoying. Nothing intuitive. Took me quite a while just to figure out how to turn off the computer. My LaserJet computer wouldn't work with it. Screw that shit. The Microsoft dweebs had a chance to make 8 more user friendly but decided to impose a POS on us because they thought they could.

    I went from XP to 7. Took me 15 minutes max to learn the new OS. Very few changes. That's change as it should be.

    That's exactly what I was suspecting what would happen, thinking it was going to be a lot like XP...just fresh. So far I'm getting used to it. I'll probably run it for awhile tbh. I'm lazy when it comes to computers.

    In a meeting the other day, I swear this woman was about to have a panic attack b/c I've never owned an IPad.

    Yes, I enjoyed watching her compose herself. :lol:

    Windows 10 has finally had the bugs weeded out after many fuck ups. Now is the time to migrate. And you still get 10 for free if you go to Microshit's "assisted living" page.

    Just remember the fucking thing (Windoze versions > 7, and even 7 after recent updates) slurps tons of ur data. I doubt those "privacy settings" have much effect in real life either.
    Macs are just as bad.
    Same with iPhone, Android, Doze Phone etc etc

    For tinfoil hat requiring purposes rather use Linux or a BSD Unix system.
