Did it just switch to tablet mode? It does that sometimes I've heard.

They're expensive, but nothing beats a Subzero or Viking
Why? I looked into Subzero before and as far as I could tell it was just an image thing, like owning a Ferrari...

Even the concept of the design on this transmission is bad. It is simply asking for bad things to happen. I'm not sure the company should be legally responsible, but it wouldn't bother me if it cost them a few million or even a few hundred million.

If any one against Win10, updates to it any time now in the future and pays $$$, you then were wrong at this point not upgrading for free.
You forgot to mention that water is wet. Since this is supposedly the last Win version, right? Just updates now. So, if they hold to that, then yes -- I will probably at some point upgrade to Win 10. But it will probably be in the form of a fresh install on a new PC. And the cost will be minimal in comparison to the cost of the PC. In the mean time, I avoid all that monitoring nonsense I dislike.

You are "free" to run as insecure of a computer as you choose to, and that's the problem MS has been attacking here.
Blah, blah, blah. I heard the same nonsense about Win XP which I stayed on well past MS's desires. As long as you aren't an idiot, and have up to date virus software, it wasn't and isn't a problem. Shockingly, I never had a issue on Win XP and I highly doubt I'll have one on Win 7.

Considering some of those customers are large corporate customers, I suspect they will expend a reasonable level of effort to keep Win 7 and Win 8 updated.
descender wrote on Aug 1, 2016, 19:14:
Barring the .5% of super-users that will get by regardless of updates... everyone else absolutely should have upgraded to windows 10 for free.
I wouldn't normally consider myself in the .5% of super users. But I have owned at least one PC continuously since 1997. The well documented issues with Win 10 give me great pause. Does this make me a tin foil hat loon? Perhaps. But seeing as I have a valid, reasonable, other choice -- I'm going to take it. I'll be hoping that before 2020, another good choice will present itself. If not... *shrug* I'll do what I have to do.

In truth, for most PC users there's no Windows 10 enhancement, new feature, or looming security threat that makes upgrading a must-do proposition.
You do not understand security at all.
So, there is a security issue resolved in Win 10 that can't be resolved in Win 7? What is it?

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Jul 26, 2016, 10:35:
I've been running 10 since launch and Steam is fine in it. In addition to that, Phil Spencer has already said Microsoft has no plans to cripple external game software this way (Hell, he's said that Microsoft's UWP games will also be sold on Steam) and that it would be suicide for their OS strategy to do so.
While I don't see any evidence to indicate Sweeney's "concerns" have any basis in reality, Microsoft saying they aren't going to do it is not a counter-indication. First, if they were doing it they wouldn't admit it. Second, they are guilty of doing it this against other products in the past.

When this game craters, it will be oddly satisfying.
What is your definition of cratering? There is a chance they have enough pre-release sales they will make money even if the game is terrible.

Is there a new level cap or is this just a content expansion?
The cap will go up 10 levels to 110, but not with this release. Basically this is getting the game on the expansion code without releasing the new content. It is a shake out cruise before they open up the new content.

Well... some of the new content is available, like the class changes. But not the new regions...

It is RARELY too hot for prime rib. And even when it is, I'd probably be willing to eat it anyway.

It's been decades since I've seen a 7-Eleven, let alone been in one and had a Slurpee. There used to be Southland distribution center in town, but it closed long ago. Truthfully, I wouldn't have been surprised if they had gone bankrupt and I had missed it.

You're thinking nostalgia will carry the day and it simply won't. What you really want is that time in your life back where you could play WoW obsessively until dawn but its gone forever.
Good point. The nostalgia is strong. But I know it can never be what it was. My guild had the first Alliance kill of Nefarian on the server -- heady days. I know it won't be that. Or even the 25 man raids I did later. And most if not all of the people I spent all that time with will be gone. I'm going to think on it some more, but the urge is starting to fade some...

Not quite sure I follow the analogy, so corporate America doesn't care if Microsoft spies on then as long as they have a working OS? Win 7 already works without the spying, right?

Yeah, I was thinking I might want to get up to speed on even the more basic things before the new expansion actually starts. Like this garrison thing I don't know anything about and learning the new herbs, ores, cloths... So, my main chars are 85... how long to level from there to 100? 40 hours? More?
