Which surpises my why the Chromebooks don't have some very good management suites for them. I think this is where the difference is going and with more and more "Cloud" (shivvers from saying that). services and web-based apps they will do job needed.

But that comes with the territory when you buy from a monopoly - what customers' think doesn't matter, the monopoly can force customers to do what the monopoly wants them to do.

After hating then loving and now hating again the Metro interface let's hope MS garner some common sense and allow us to remove it so effectively Windows 8 becomes Windows 7.1......

I'd be so happy if I could purchase windows 2000 2012 edition. all the background updates but the look and feel of 2000.
The SINGULAR reason I'm slogging my way through Windows 8 is direct access. it's upset me so much (win8) that I've actually rage formatted my laptop twice! I hate having to google my way through the interface. (I had to google how to shutdown!)

Why not use a Windows 7 client with a 2012 server?

PKI for a start and finish. turns into a 3 server setup with CAs, CRLs and a whole host of crud I don't want to setup just to try this technology. Which btw isn't living up to the hype. (DA isn't a magic remote bullet, it's slow & obfuscated)

I wouldn't agree there (in the sense of not living up to hype).

It works a treat with Windows 7 and from a end user prespective its like they never even left the network.

You only have to learn it once (unless you have a very bad memory).

My question would be how the hell do they know ?
Have they implemented an update which records mouse and keyboard clicks ?

MS-DOS was easy. Every action you could do on a CLI has a command, so you can look it up in the index of the manual where it was thoughtfully listed, and the commands were a finite, and relatively compact closed set. Also you couldn't mess up something as easily because in order to do something, you had to type the command for it, and if you didn't know it, you probably shouldn't be typing it anyway.

For example, how do you look up a touch gesture in a manual? You also have a problem with people clicking and dragging etc. to find out what the GUI or touch interface does when you do something, rather than looking up the manual first as you were compelled to do with a CLI interface. This leads to things on the UI getting messed up in a way which didn't happen with a CLI.
