My guru has a concept called 8.

There's a type of psycho-babble I'm particularly fond of called 'active listening'.

Normally people say '5,6,7'  (not literally of course dude - it's like a metaphor) and we say 1,2,3 or whatever.
So we have two monologues that look like a dialogue.

In 'active listening' when you say '5,6,7' I reply 'what I hear you saying dude is 5,6,7'. You feel very understood and loved and the world is a groovier place.

But Big Greg (my guru) says that to feel really understood you need to hear 'so dude you seem to be saying 5,6,7 right? and I guess that means '8'.

'eight' is the feedback that shows we have processed our compeers ideas and understood their implications.

so windows 8 - yeah dude I'm feeling very loved by my computer. It seems to know where I'm going after 5,6,7 - if you get my meaning

I dunno,dude..windows 8...not sure yet..7 is decent,why whip out 8?..?
Just feeding the monkey,for micro-shaft?
No real issues from 7 here,unless you decide to use internet explorer...does anyone use that piece of shit? :P..All the issues stem from explorer,and suchlike...
I got some sort of deal thing,to upgrade to 8 for 15 bucks..maybe thats all its worth.

Eight's a failure. They're sucking up to the tablet and phone market. Just google "Windows 8 reviews". 

Follow the money...

It's pretty much pure Indica. Way too heavy for my taste really and insanely strong. It knocks my brain so far sideways I find myself craving regular consciousness, so it just sits there most of the time, unused, mocking me.

HA HA! Too funny, M dude. Actually, funny you should point that out; a friend of mine said to me recently that the Windows Eight "interface" (Metro) looks like it was designed for dumb teenaged kids stressed out over trying to use their mobile device to find the nearest trendy coffee shop and can't think beyond pushing brightly colored building blocks around the screen!

Have to say, he has a point. Windows Eight has the definite feel of a dumbed down OS perfect for a dumbed down society...nice brightly colored big building blocks for people with a forever 4 year old mind, kind of like this.........

I'll fall for it. I don't know much about computers, so I just do what I'm told.
