    This problem is what killed the original touchscreen computer designs twenty years ago, and saw the rise of the term "gorilla arms" (which is what you'd need to be able to use such a system). For...

    Sometimes it decides not to route sound through my HDTV. I can only run fullscreen apps on the "primary" screen (in this case, the TV), but as soon as I switch to a program on the local laptop...

    I think Windows 8's biggest failing is it's sheer inconsistency in the design. Want to execute some simple command or find a simple thing? Well now, it could be in the menu, or a button on the title...

    On modern CPUs, using hyperthreads with Lightwave gives a performance boost where each hyperthread is worth about 25% of a full core. So while 8 hyperthreads won't halve your render times, it will be...

    Internally, it's fairly stable as far as OS's go, but you still have to do the "find the 800 incredibly obscure and hidden settings to get basic functionality up and running correcty" stage. I spent...

    I just bought a Windows 8 laptop specifically to play Kerbal Space Program (its physics code is single-threaded and doesn't work so well on my Mac Pro -- it's also why I've pretty much dropped out of...
