    Don't do it. JUST DON'T DO IT.

    I spend an hour every motherfucking day on the phone, with tech support and remote access, as they reset 2 browsers, 'causer neither are fully compatible yet.

    Sometimes twice a day, depending on when they opt to kick out.

    Stupidest shit I've dealt with in quite some time.

    I have it on my new laptop, it's kind of hard to get used to. :grr: I think there are so many shortcuts and such, that I'm constantly accidentally going to another screen or ending up on another page. :doh:

    WTF does it take for me to remove this and install Windows 7, until the browsers catch up? My tech service said "wait another couple of months" - but I have to call every fucking day for them to restore each browser.

    Otherwise.........I can see videos on this site, on Explorer - but it won't let me log in.

    I can log in on Firefox, but all of the videos show up as "advertisement".

    Neither browser will let me multi-quote.

    :suicide:

    F YOU! I have Rogers "Texpert" now.....24/7 access. They take remote access of my computer 1 - 2X daily, to keep resetting shit. They've set up everything, reconfigured everything...both browsers keep kicking out.

    Another issue for me. I've been on a Mac for well over a decade. Windows is foreign to me again.

    No. They do seem a little quirkier at times. :dontknow: Like sometimes when I am on Dawg's and I go to quote someone, it won't do it. I just go back and start over and dick around long enough to get around it. It's irritating though. :grr:

    The worst part is the cloud. Most sites have cloud storage for music and pics and stuff. The windows 8 cloud takes all your documents and stores them for you whether you like it or not. Every bank statement. Every legal paper that has been scanned of everyone on the entire planet that uses windows 8 is in the hands of the Microsoft corporation.
