Hate Windows 8 Start Up Screen?

The Start Screen with the big icons designed for a touch screen monitor really, really stinks! Here’s how to fix it: Make Windows 8 Look Like Windows 7

Another simple program is called “Pokki” and it’s the one I installed on my new laptop. It’s available for download HERE.

  1. One of my favourite philosopher's was an Englishman named Jeremy Bentham (1748 - 1832).

    What he came up with was, neither communism nor capitalism, but was somewhere in between, he called it utilitarianism, which in essence is, the maximum good to the maximum number of people.

    The big difference with this is, you don't have to enforce it with the barrel of a gun, just explain it and let democracy take it's course.

    Micro$oft is not about the maximum good for the maximum number of people, it is about Bill Gates becoming the richest man on the planet.

    I'm surprised a bloke as clever as you, has not tried Linux yet!

    All you need do is, download a 'live disc' from Ubuntu (say), burn it to a DVD and you can try it, without in any way committing yourself, then once you have satisfied yourself, that it is not that different to Windows, you can install it. (to get a better performance)

    Personally I am running the very latest Stockfish, with xboard as my GUI (almost the same as winboard)
