Microscum sucks period, they are a predator and everyone dumb enough to use their crap is the prey. too bad the US government is backing them 100% which a smart person might ask why that is so.

Linux does everything Winblows does only for free and open source ( so you can see what makes the software work MS is closed source meaning the can hide all kinds of crap and backdoors and you can't even hope that an intelligent person will tell you whats there lurking )

re: Windows 8 Promises Fewer Annoying Restarts
How about no restarts at all? Several Linux distros can do this and technically there is no reason why a reboot is even necessary. Load the new component and reroute requests of apps for the old version directly to the new version, then drop the old one. Some Linux distros can even swap the kernel while running and require a reboot only when the power is out or hardware needs to be changed.

Uhm... I only have to reboot about once a month as is (usually once every 2-3 months) with Win7 & auto-receiving all updates. So what are people complaining about?
