My old cavalier 92 V6 could win a lot of cars of today.

Not everybody chases the "bleeding edge" and has to have the latest version of everything, though.  For example - I develop code with VS2008, SQL 2008R2 and Active Reports 6.  The Des Buckley Says: August 27th, 2014 at 11:18 pm MICROSOFT!!

When he's not covering the news he's working on how-to tips for PC users, or tuning his eGPU setup.

The PC market has been steadily declining over the last few years, but a slump of 13.9% was really quite unexpected.

Assuming a 10-year lifecycle on the software, there's a long period of time that I as a user am going to happily roll along without having to retool at all. Move that 'touch' to an ergonomic device like the touchpad, you're going the right direction. It even comes with training wheels, Bootcamp is ready to pop your OS of choice. and the point follows after the list.

A) extremely talented programmers and wise, educated folk are using OSx as their primary and ONLY OS. I've used DOS, Windows 3.1 an onwards, OS2 version 1 and on, Mac, and Apple, butt the learning curve for Windows8 sucks ass most of all. hdds through not defragging, bad cases that don't vent, and never dusting it. http://www.facebook.com/michael.shreve.94 Michael Shreve WHAT could an OS POSSIBLY do to make buying a new PC attractive.

August 2016 anniversary update broke millions of web cameras. This year we saw HiDPI displays, cameras ...even smartphones now capable of shooting 4k!

Whether you're Facebooking or scientifically crunching weather forecast history and futures, figuring out DNA structuring and disease/virus mutations....it's an absolute JOKE to use the touch'centric' platform for any amount of time. It really is all hinging on Windows 8 tablets, IMO. Just like when PCs replaced mainframes as the dominant technology, mainframes are still around today, but just in the niches they best serve. I, in fact, didn't even read the article because of the title.
