The best thing the EU could do is break the M$ monopoly that forces you to pay for Windoze on a new machine. i.e. the manufacturer should be required to offer the same hardware without Windoze at a lower price. That price reduction should represent a large proportion of the retail price of the software - the price M$ charge you and me - and not some cooked-up deal to make the discount appear hardly worth having. Then operating systems could compete on a level playing field.

Anyway, if you are lumbered with W8 then you absolutely *need* http://www.stardock....roducts/start8/ (or similar product) to preserve your sanity. Best five bucks you will spend this year, and you get to try it free for a month anyway.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
