Obvious;ly stands for Th Toms Hardware, the greatest Tech review site the world has ever seen.
Amirite? *nerd*
Maybe yes, maybe not. But I think it's in reasonably bad taste for you to come here and spring that on us. Amirite, or am I right?:cool:

You say you were trying to be tasteless? Why am I not surprised?

The placeholder is the word Windows, while everyone waits for something better.
You, and anyone else that entertains such notions, are going to be waiting a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time then, perhaps even indefinitely. Nothing that's free, and I mean truly free as Linux claims to be, is even close to being as complete, simple and mainstream as Windows is. Sorry if that's not what you want to hear, that's just the hard truth of it, plain and simple. Bash it, *Pun intended*, all you want but you cant deny that Windows is simple to use and caters for virtually any need which is why it is here to stay even with the "Vista's" they release every now and then.

I feel you there bro. You have to wade through an agonizing amount of begging and a lot of guilt, before you can download that "free" copy of Ubuntu.

I installed Ubuntu recently, then used it the same as I would any version of Windows. I took me a whole 1/2 hour to have it completely locked up...:D

I was reading on YouTube how people would like to block posts that use excessive punctuation. I figure if you throw in posts that don't make a hell of a lot of sense either, we'd have this mess I'm quoting. Just holding down the exclamation point, does that take a lot of talent? Oh wait, you have to hold down the shift key at the same time, That's hard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hall and Oates said that you were out of touch way back in the 80's. A smart phone doesn't have a shift key. Who said you can't teach an old fart new tricks?

Why don't you buy me a smart phone, so I can lay a big old fart on it?:p Better yet, just pass me yours.

Besides, who the hell are Hall and Oats? Is that a breakfast cereal? Did they used to be in the Rolling Stones?

Has anybody else noticed Microsoft seems to flip-flop when it comes to successful versions of Windows?

Windows 2k / ME - TERRIBLE
Windows XP - STABLE
Windows Vista - TERRIBLE
Windows 7 - STABLE
Windows 8/8.1 - TERRIBLE
Windows 9 - (STABLE?)

Never seen anyone call 2k terrible... but yes, unfortunately for everyone who frequents these forums those types of 1,2 (tick, tock) comments are all over the forum.

FWIW, Windows "ME", and Windows "2000", which is the pro version have perhaps much different legacies.. I've seen 2000 used damned near up to 2010 without much in the way of issues. In fact, many people seem to have liked it about on a par with XP. M$ withdrew support, hence it became dangerous to go on the web with it, which obviously.spelled its doom.

As for Vista, the big news there is native support for SATA HDDs. Throughout its short life, I think many, many people, ignored that fact, and still set up their builds to run their HDDs as IDE.

I have a laptop with Vista, which I rarely use. I don't have any trouble with the OS. It doesn't have Win Media Center. Since Win 7 didn't have the same stripped down version, it's not entirely fair to compare them. Win 8 however, made media center an option. . Given that most desktop users didn't have touch, but did use media center, that fact alone was enough to assure Win 8's miserable sales performance

Daryl Hall and John Oates. My wife has one of their records. Best avoided as they tended to play very commercial sentimental trash.

They seem to have done very well with it too.

I was never a fan. They just didn't mesh with my country / rock / folk sensibilities. Besides, I like stuff with actual content, Loreena McKennitt, The Strawbs, those who cover Dylan, Jackson Browne , etc.

Daryl Hall does have a syndicated internet/TV show called, "Live from Daryl's House". I don't always agree with the type of music featured on the program, but I do enjoy watching music being made. That said, the program serves that purpose for me, without scouring YouTube or leaving the house. (But only when I'm bored, mind you ;)).

Windows 8/8.1 are quite stable. They are just as stable as 7; they just messed up the UI (which isn't that hard to navigate once you take 10 minutes to look up where things are). And lumping ME and 2K together is ridiculous. Those are very, very different operating systems. ME is based on Windows 9x while 2K is based on NT. Windows XP is based on Windows 2000. ME and Vista were the only really terrible versions of Windows.

Oh well, Windows "TH" might be pretty cool as long as you get "Cortana" to talk.to. And, unlike most women, you'll be able to shut her up by putting the computer on standby.(y)

Microsoft should take it a step further. What about just calling it Microsoft WTH? All jokes aside, it looks like the next version will be a welcome treat.
