Quote from: albrecht on June 25, 2014, 03:14:13 PMSo I'm not saying that I demand to use DOS but in the new version of windows (8.1) is there a way to at least limit the whole "experience" to make it at least like an XP menus (no no floating boxes everywhere, stupid avatar "helpers", "live" windows, and all that non-sense?) I much prefer lists of things and reading or using a keyboard/mouse than touch screen or looking at "live" objects changing shapes when I just want to open a file. Got a get a new computer soon and I reckon I will be stuck with some MS product. Also don't like automatic "cloud back-ups" or even automatic backup on the same harddrive "restore points" (doesn't make sense to me and eats memory) like all these new systems seem to want you to use.
Quote from: Mind Flayer Monk on June 25, 2014, 04:16:47 PMI know there is an option that lets you install the desktop as the default environment. But this option has to be chosen at setup. I will look into how you can switch to it post-setup since you will probably be buying preinstalled 8.1.I think the start menu is gone for now, but there are 3rd party addons. And as always you can hit the window key and just type stuff on the tile screen and it will search for it for you. But I understand people like the start menu.
Quote from: albrecht on June 25, 2014, 04:45:51 PMThanks. No hurry or don't make any effort on my account. I know it is silly, maybe, because memory etc is so darn cheap but I don't understand the need to make everything graphic and "moving" and odd automations and frills to do simple things (what I want a computer to do: open a document, look at list of documents, open a browser, burn a DVD, use Excel, etc.)

Quote from: MV on June 28, 2014, 09:28:06 AMNo, you're wrong. Tests have shown Ed performs marginally better than a piece of limestone.
