Windows 8 Down in Flames

Filed under: Main — Tags: — admin @ 12:01 am

I’ve been using Windows 8 for a while now. Let me tell you: It really sucks. I wrote before that I didn’t like it, but being forced to use Windows 8, especially under the guise of trying to write a book for beginners, is very painful.
