    Who would like a nice keyboard to go with the Start Screen?

    I don't know about you guys, but I don't need all the rainbow colors to know what I am clicking. I can learn to accept the Start Menu, but I will never accept rainbow buttons for a menu system. Nor will you ever see a multicolor keyboard, such as the one above connected to my PC.

    Hi Clifford who does your nails? ;)
     
  4. Blah Blah Blah! The same old tired trite. If you do not like Windows 8 or any variation thereof, then stick to Windows 7 or whatever it is that you are using. Hearing the same thing over and over again makes me want to vomit.

    Guess who the guest works for? The prize is a distinctive keyboard guaranteed not to show your sick.

    It's actually using Windows 8 that makes you feel that way.;)
    I promise I will not tell your secret, it is safe with me.

    Well excuse me whilst I put on my makeup, dress and high heals. Crossdressing is preferable to using W8 ;)

    Windows 8.1? Hahahahaha. Yeah, ummm....thanks, but no thanks. It's still a tablet OS. No sale. When I feel compelled to purchase a tablet OS I'll buy an Android-based phone.

    If the purpose of windows 8 Metro on the desktop was to enjoy tablet apps then let?s hope they fix the worst part of Windows 8 with Metrro, the inability of Metro Apps to run in a window on the Desktop. Having tablet apps take the full screen, or 1/4 screen slices on the side of a large desk top monitor is plain ugly and counterproductive. I should be able to populate my large display with as many small metro apps wherever I want them to be and remove them from the desktop as easily as closing a normal Windows program thus keeping the desktop as the primary work place. ModenMix from the makers of Start8 already solved this issue for you but I should not have to go to a third party to fix this issue. If people did not see a difference from using a Metro App then no one would complain of the full screen apps and would have adapted instantly. Group icons that holld related apps is better than scrolling a massive list where all icons become similar and confusing. They could have added frequently used apps on the buttom of the Start screen with the option to load a previously used files by holding down the icon and swiping to the desired file in a pop up list. Microsoft is trying to kill the Desktop which is where gamers and productive users want to be.
