Some freaky burglar has been breaking into my house over the last five years and stealing stuff. Just last night they broke in, knocked the new mouse cage over and stole a disc sheet containing Simcity 4 Deluxe disc 2 and a Touhou music disc that came with a manga I got off J-List. I believe this person has also stolen SC4's case and Disc 1(which is why I had Disc 2 in that sheet), two Gamecube memory cards and a USB drive with Lisa on it, all from under our noses (the USB was stolen in the afternoon).

Is there anything I can do about this?

EDIT: Argh, my brother found it on a shelf in the garage. Turns out it'd been placed there yesterday, probably while I was cleaning up or something. Doesn't help with finding SC4 though.

Windows 8 Get!

:P

This is from the Final Release of Windows 8 which comes out in two weeks, and before Wiimeiser can think of any lame theories on how I got it like thinking it was leaked or something, it's not as far as I'm aware, my copy is fully legitimate, with a valid license key. I got it through university, since the Microsoft DreamSpark service has Windows 8 available to download for students.

I have four keys for Windows 8 and four more Windows 7 keys. (I had already downloaded four keys for Windows 7, so now I have eight.)

It'll only look that way after a large amount of customisation.

The start menu is as we all know removed, but I'm using Classic Shell to bring it back. :P

I customised the orb too to look like how I had it in Windows Vista sort of. :P

Removing the start menu was an open invitation for someone to make something to bring it back.
Removing it is one of he things where i think Mightysoft has been just to god damn stubborn.

Microsoft removed it because they claimed that noone uses the Start Menu anymore.

I call bullshit, come Windows 9, I'll bet that it'll be back.

Windows 8 isn't bad in general, but it is indeed similar to 7 what Vista was to XP.

Heh. Some made a lot of work making Windows look like a Mac.
Now people will do a lot of work making Windows look like ......Windows. :P

Microsoft put Giga bits of software in Windows to make it fit all kind of hard/soft- ware. So what would it take for them to make the start menu optional?
Oh, yes. Some marketing guys pride.

What MS tried with Win8 was to make it usable on everything, but prioritised for tablet and touch users. Which is why the start screen exists. The start screen just doesn't work with a keyboard and mouse, which is why I got rid of it by using Classic Shell to give me back the original start menu. It's a little small though, so I got to look into making it bigger.

Are the classic shells available by default or are they a third-party addon?

Third party.

And unless you like transparent taskbars, I'd recommend editing your wallpaper image to feature a taskbar sized solid colour.
