My father is an engineer as well and I would move his pen holder, a Gauss rifle round casing from SRI when he worked there, and he would flip! Not because I touched this object, but because that wasn't where it "belonged" on his desk. Then we replaced his office system and switched him from XP to 7.....he still complains.

my dad is still on xp but our home pcs are on 7. His work PC is on xp. He's got an age old dell optiplex 740. He was going to get a brand new dell precision m4600. Kick butt laptop. And a dock system so its like a desktop. He doesn't want it because its a laptop.
Wrecking Ball.

Good thing i want nothing to do with vista Windows 8. On a side note they should offer a free downgrade for new systems since i know quite a few people who are buying new machines in a few months who also don't want 8.

His PC in the basement at home is a 3ghz Celeron Socket 478 with 768mb of ram and a 500gb hd (original 40gb crashed 4 years ago) He got it 12 years ago. still continues to slowly run.

his new office PC is what he uses all the time now. uses an iPad and iPod at home. I don't think that pc has been turned on in over a month. I know the video card died his old office PC, they had the motherboard replaced under warranty, probably going to give it to him to replace that old PC, then destroy it ^.^

I've been running W8 RTM for a little while now - I like it much better than W7. It's faster - and if you can get past the metro interface (aka use it as a start up screen and just go to the desktop) it's fine.

Who cares? People complained, loudly, when the ancient "classic" start menu was removed from Windows 7. Some will find anything to complain about, reguardless of what it is, purely for the sake of complaint.

Many cannot accept change and better improvements. Like morons saying XP is better then 7. Those are people that fail to adapt or don't want to move on with technology. They are set in their own way.
