Played through Mass Effect again... Good and bad idea. It was good because I did things more complete this time, it was bad because I'm depressed that it's over.  Sad

You don't have to lie, we all hate windows 8 too.
Really, I didn't like it before either. But aside from the Start screen (Which isn't that bad after the updates.) I'm using it pretty much like it's Windows 7.5.

what did the update change o:
It tweaked how the the start menu worked with a mouse. It really improved it a lot for me personally.

Aside from the Start menu and it's apps it's mainly the same with a few differences here and there. It is a bit faster than Win7.
it's recent Update make it much easier and pleasant to use on a desktop. Imo once it gets the option for a classic start menu, it will be better than Windows 7.

Bit the bullet, nuked my desktop PC and installed Windows 8.1. The recent Update 1 makes it rather usable with a mouse and keyboard.

It looks pretty nice though.
Did you change the bar?
Yeah it's a theme I found.

Your computer is newer than mine and mine ran vista and win7 just fine, and is doing even better on linux.

The fan problem is actually a problem with BIOS and is fixed by suspending your laptop after every reboot. And try Debian with LXDE or XFCE on it to use very few resources and cool it down. Mine used to run hot enough to burn my hand every day but now it's a lot cooler since I'm making it a lot moe lightweight.

What GPU does your computer have?
I don't know what messed up the fan because it used to work fine, until it stopped working and I replaced it. It's still wonky, it either does not turn on or it starts and stops, and I have to force it with a program on Windows for it run ok. There's a version of the program for Linux but It hasn't worked as well (Though I'm probably not doing it right, as it is terminal based.)

The CPU also started running really high for everything around the same time the fan stopped working. (After much tweaking I managed to get it running ok in Windows XP, not sure what was causing it.)
Also I didn't use to have that much problems with 3D effects as it does now, it'll just be really slow or have some glitchy problems, not sure what happened there. I like XFCE, but sometimes I'd like to try some more flashy DE's.

My laptop is a Dell Latitude D620 with a Nvidia Quadro NVS 110m.

Why don't you upgrade to 7 or Debian or something? Why stay with XP?
I dunno, my laptop's a little old (2007) and XP is what it came with. I'm sure 7/8 runs fine on it but eh. I have 7 on my desktop PC.
And I'm going to dual boot with Linux, XP works great enough with this laptop that I can't go Linux full time on it. (Some issues with my fan and CPU usage, 3D effects are very buggy on it for some reason, and it gets quite a bit hotter.)

I thought you had to pay extra for the extended updates?
Don't think so. Security updates are free.

Steel made lcom into LudiPaw for an april fools joke. He made some peoples names some random furry name, the theme was made furry, kinfins autism made his rage, we laughed, was fun.
I saw that, but why did people leave.

where do you find these things? O.o
Saw someone mention it talking about XP's EOL coming up. MS has an evaluation disc for download too.

It's a version of Windows XP for business on machines and checkouts and stuff. It's supported to 2019 and works fine as a normal desktop.
