    I have worked with a rocket scientist, and he didn't like Windows 8. And your post feels condescending. I grew up with Windows after all.
    Wasn't meant to be and I appologise. I know I sometimes come off like that. :/

    I've used Windows since the beginning and DOS before that. I even used another OS before that and I used early Apple OS. I think it was the II or something.

    I grew up with Windows, my first computer OS i used was Windows 98, and then i used Windows XP, tried Vista and didn't like some aspects, although i wonder why it was criticised, although i get why now.

    I used Windows 7 and my brother has a laptop which runs Windows 7, which is pretty good and Windows 8/RT i haven't properly used as i've only used computers with Windows 8 at tech stores.

    I now use my Macbook Air with OSX 10.8. :)
    My dad had a Commodore 64, after that he switched to Windows 3.11. I guess I was around 10 then. After that I used every desktop version of Windows, including Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows ME.

    I use OSX quite regularly at the university. For example yesterday, and I still don't get why people like this waste of space with all the windows not being full screen and this big bar at the bottom...

    I haven't used any of the new Macs. The guy next to me is getting a new Macbook Pro which I'm sure he'll bring in. I have no idea about Macs at all so can't comment.

    In approximately 30 mins I'll be boarding the coach bus that's parked outside the building and take me away to the first of three xmas lunches. Today's is the 'fancy' one. The other two are more local. I'm not even certain what I'm having. It's a 'gastro pub' with fancy sounding food. If it's any good I'll take the wife. :)

    LOL! It's probably too fancy for you! :P It's not a standard pub. :P I don't even know what I'm going to be eating! :P

    Here's what I'm having:

    Crab, lemon and chervil cakes with red pepper mayonnaise
    Slow cooked feather of beef in Guinness with celeriac Dauphinoise, pumpkin mash and roast Portobello mushroom
    Cherry and almond tart with cherry crumble ice cream

    Heres what today looks like for me. No meetings, no special events or team lunches. Just a day working and learning in the design team. Currently eating lunch. Bit of a dull day today.

    I had seminar in the morning and I have to prepare two presentations. I should fit in some experiments, but I think I'll skip at least one of them and do it tomorrow. Now I have to check some publications to see if I can put my data in a logical context, before I put it into the presentation. Soon I'll have some coffee with a friend, and in the evening I have dance course.

    Tomorrow my new Steelcase chair arrives, so looking forward to that. I also just reinstalled BF3 so I can play some with an old friend.

    What kind of Dance class are you going to?

    Morning folks. So I'm riding the rails in rush hour (what else is new?)...my trip back home got pushed back a few days. Still haven't felt like reading too much here on the forums as there's still too much to do...

    It was (it's the last time today, but we're planning to take the advanced one) a general beginner's course. We learned Foxtrot, Disco Fox, Cha-Cha-Cha, Waltz, and The Chive.
