I've got it running in an ancient 2004 laptop. It's slow ad crap but that's the computer! Its a nice idea, but I still find myself doing things in desktop mode because u don't do multi touch on that PC. It has beautiful design and I wish I had something more modern to put it on. It will be interesting to see how well the market responds. Its very interesting that's for sure!

Having used to work for MSoft whilst developing Vista, I can safely say 8 will be their best OS yet.

Windows 95 was a decent OS, it wasn't totally crap.

Also, you missed 2000, which was actually a really good release. (No Windows ME and Windows 2000 are not the same thing. Windows ME was released after 2000.)

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
