You've been visiting a lot of Windows help forums, eh?
Yeah in fact I joined the Vista forum Jan 2008, even before I found DC. I've followed it through W7 and W8. But never having owned any smart phones or tablets I must say I'm dismayed with the current direction Windows has taken. I'm on W Ten forum but it doesn't run well enough in a VM on my laptop to try very much. And it's just W8 with a few doodads anyway.
But I can always brush up on Linux or check out others if Windows really drops off the deep end.
With all the specialized Linux distros I wish someone would come up with EyeCandyLinux. Let's have fun with a free OS that not only works well but looks damn good doing it, is what the copy might say.
Edit: I just found Eye Candy Linux
