This is wrong beyond words. It must be apples efficiency rating that brought them over the top in desktops not their original idea of an OS or their flashy new ipods and iphones, nope must be their efficiency.
When your on a ARM device, let me know how much battery that is. wink.gif

1. I think you should concentrate on replying correctly to people's points rather than picking up on typo's and claiming a spelling victory. Because typo's aren't as important as correctly recognising what someone is talking about. For instance many people have mentioned their gripes with this are for DESKTOP machines and it appears you have a blindspot towards the word Desktop.
2. People aren't too worried about power savings on their desktop where there are no batteries.
3. You're the only person getting hot headed here. You're worried about "spoon feeding people" and such. And, no, you haven't taken anyone to the cleaners. You're cleaning yourself out with these arrogant posts that miss the point entirely.
Right, and, once again. what about desktop users who don't ahve a battery and WANT Aero?
What harm is there letting these people have a choice in the matter?

1. No one was targeting type-o's, the sentences themselves didn't make sense to me (my fault?).
2. Quite frankly no one cares about desktops, when Windows 8 is brought up, the word Desktop is the last to exist. Windows 7 is for Desktops.
3. Im not hot headed, I like stating the obvious and watching others blow up. Either that or they try changing the questions/responses around to target something else. I have been stating cold hard facts in my posts that is clearly resulting in the obvious now. Yet it took 30 posts for people to finally start to get it, and probably will take 30 more.

There is no harm in choice, just Microsoft doesn't want to implement it. So really you don't have a choice? That would be like people complaining that they want Aero removed from Windows Vista before it came out. But it was a new technology then, and people liked it. Now its just drug out, and is not worth its keep. There is two Windows builds on the market for people who want Aero, isn't that enough?

Are you dense? We are trying to talk about desktops I can give a rats behind about ARM devices. OS' for ARM devices have no place on desktops.

So why are you wasting your time with a Laptop/Notebook/ARM OS? I think I established my point in that single line.

And also, since when did Windows 7 become free? Supplying any Windows OS to OEM's nets them money.
Honestly, you are fighting a losing battle here and completely clutching at straws.
Because its useless bulk added to the operating system that kills battery life. And yes there is only a handful of people complaining (I call them whine _ _ _ 's). No one said Windows was free, Windows supply's the OS to OEM's because it reals in Microsoft more money, how do you not understand this? Your fighting on the losing side of the battle, clutching at straws, notice how much you complained in the past few pages over losing Aero. Seriously learn to let go of things lol.

This is why we started to talk about Laptops, i never mentioned ARM devices at all you just threw it out there to save the pathetic excuse of a windows Operating system.
