Windows Finally Gets a Shutdown Button

It's like kicking a cripple. Sure, you can do it, but it's so easy. I usually have lots of unpleasant things to say about Windows, and I run OSX, Linux, and FreeBSD at home.

But I no longer have to badmouth Windows because Windows users are busy enough doing it themselves. Seriously, the amount of hate I'm hearing from people who'd otherwise never even think about installing another OS is incredible. A friend saved for a long time to buy his first laptop, and when he finally bought it and he realized he was forced to buy Win8, not Win7, he was seriously disappointed. To listen to him, you'd think he got sold defective goods.

In a way, he did. I use Win7 at work and it's surprisingly good, though it takes way too much space on a hard drive. But Win8 is awful, absolutely atrocious. Take that you f*cking cripple.

Guess not. At least it doesn't block Scunthorpe like some sites. Sussex is blocked occasionally too, which is hilarious.
