  1. Twenty-thirteen was an incredible year for Microsoft. A year ago, when we looked forward to what the company had in store, we could hardly have imagined just how many exciting developments were still to come.

    No Service Pack 2 for Windows 7. Regardless of what was brought out in 2013, I'm still disappointed.

    The irony of it all is that less than a year later windows 8 released 8.1, it may not officially be counted as a service pack but in reality thats what it is. Im actually shocked they didnt do one for 7, but you know microsoft is pushing 8 hard core. Though I like 8, I wish they had done an extreme update to 7 to keep it living on further with some features brought on only available in 8.

    Agreed wholeheartedly on that one. I understand that Microsoft wants everyone to have to pay to upgrade to Windows 8, but for those of us who aren't interested in moving on yet, a service pack would be greatly appreciated.

    Just keep complaining, maybe they'll listen! Ha
    But then again, why would they listen to a bunch of technology nerds who know nothing about W8 but yet complain like they're experts. I say - GOOD FOR YOU MICROSOFT, keep up the great work!

    Thats not all, I don't want to know anything about that eye sore ****! I'll stick to my eye candy thank you, especially when I know MS won't support their next OS for any longer period of time.

    I don't usually label people, but you are obviously trolling!

    You mean iCandy right - look who's trolling! I'm just sick and tired of hearing from people complaining about MS and Windows 8 when they are TOTALLY clueless about the OS and how it performs.

    Now you are trying to link me with a company of which I have absolutely no relations. I'm getting sick and tired of people telling me how the OS performs when that is not why I hate it.

    MS blowing their own trumpet! Actually they are not very impressive. MS is living off its past glories. They are basically recycling old applications with minor enhancements. How much more can Excel 2013 do compared to Excel 2003?
