@fatalbanana: If I ever need to open a program that isn't on my taskbar I hit the Windows Key and type the first 2-3 letters and hit enter and I have it running. It's exactly how I used the start menu in previous iterations (and the same as everyone else I have spoke to about it) but now the search function is much better.
Whenever someone complains about Windows 8 and they begin by talking about the start menu I can't help but tune out everything else they're saying because they've already proven themselves to be an idiot. Of course you're going to have trouble and complain if you don't bother to learn the most basic features of your new OS.
You press the Windows key, by the way.
Starting off by calling people idiots for not having the same level of appreciation of an OS as you do proves you're not worth conversing with.
Not everyone likes Windows 8. Get over it.
He's right though, anyone who complains about the Start Menu is an idiot.
@three0nefive: I love that you can't actually phrase your passive-aggressive statement at me. I also love how you seemingly can't understand that the US isn't the rest of the world and how sometimes maybe words are used differently in the US compared to everywhere else. I also love that you consider a couple of posts a 'huge shitfit'.
The hell does Q stand for? And why are they all lumped together? That's dumb. You know what's not dumb? The ballad of Gay Tony. It's a damn fine game/expansion.
I think Q refers to Queer, which is fucking ridiculous considering the word queer means weird/strange/odd. The fact that people in this thread are happy to use that term is fucked up.
I hate to break this to you, but the term queer is very commonly used as a self-descriptive term by quite a few different orientations. If you don't believe me, take a look at the Craigslist personals in San Francisco.
And black people commonly refer to themselves and their friends with the N-word, but that doesn't mean I can use it too does it?
