SeconLife : Why Windows 8 Suck's A Big One and Miscellaneous Rant's

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ok it's already starting to happen, friends and relatives have gotten new computers at Christmas, and like it or not they come with Win8 installed, LOL and some of them with no original back up DVD Disk.

    Let me just put it this way, Micro Soft  screwed up Big Time, Win8 is like Win ME and Vista, total garbage, as far as desktop PC's are concerned.

    The lack of such a simple thing as the START Button is a complete slap in the face to all loyal MS Windows user's. And as far as SecondLife is concerned you will more than likely need to run it in Compatibility Mode for Win7 or XP.

    So you are stuck with 3 choices, learn how to get around in Win8 ( the learning curve is steep ) Downgrade to Win7 ( that's a free-bee ) or simply install a very small and simple Open Source Win8 enhancement. Classic Shell !!!  

     This will return your Start button to the horrible Win8 start up screen, and get you back to normal !

     And while I'm at it, WTF is up with LL, the official User Group Meetings, they have been cut down to just 4, Nyx, Andrew, Oz and Maestro Linden. See for yourself at...

    Ya know what ?  I guess I can't really complain, SL only cost me about 90$ US real life money a year.

    And what's up with Rod Humble ? He seems more concerned with developing mindless game's designed for children than taking care of the SL platform, people are quitting or getting fired left and right every week at LL

    I'm at the point I really don't care any more. Have you looked at the concurrency rate lately, usually there are no more than 50,000 users on line at peak hours. Hell I have seen it as low as 20,000. And to top it off abandoned land seems to be heading for a field day.

    Let's face it the Lab needs to lower Tier Price's, PLAIN AND SIMPLE !!
