    That was my thought when they offered me the pay that they did. They were willing to give me a foot in the door when no one else was and a department head title, salaried position. Thanks! Haha!

    I'd love to learn some coding skills and try my hand at developing some Android apps or something. All the coding I know is some (pretty basic) html.

    why do people call this a mac feature... I had virtual desktops enabled in Windows xp back in 2003 LONG before Mac introduced it in 2007.

    it's a Unix thing if anything.

    Virtual desktop - Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

    glad to see its baked in finally

    Used a program called AltDesk from Astonshell. It was a program worth the money..

    I had AstonShell as well. It was great. I used WindowsBlinds for a while too.

    The good old days!

    This seems to be my only option my bd-rom is broke so that sucks but HP is sending me a new drive so just have to wait a few more days, because I only have discs for 7 not usb. I'll post after the drive comes and I try installing 7 then 10 directly.

    Windows 10 is a good upgrade but i cant resize the start menu horizontally yet might be a bug. My background picture came up upside down after upgrade. Games like warcraft and minecraft. Seem to run slower dint like the interface of edge but for like the draw feature which they should put in ie and dump edge and fix ie to be fast. Edge doesn't use the favorites folder for shortcuts like ie so it just lets you import ie shortcuts without the ability to sync them. I love cortana voice control but she needs to learn siri type jokes. I like the new start menu but still needs more customization options. Windows needs an xpmode for legacy programs people will never give up. Android needs a goid forum for windows 10 news tips and gripes so this thread is a good start. :)

    So Windows won't recognize any of my product keys.

    I started with a clean install of Win10, rolled back to Win7 thinking I had to do an upgrade to Win 10 from Win7 before clean installing afterwards. Neither my Home Premium nor my Win 7 Professional key are being accepted.. I'm going to have to bite the bullet and call them. That should be fun.

    If they try to make me pay again I will ditch Windows forever and grind through OSX.

    Microsoft has a build an iso to upgrade and clean install
    Windows 10 ISO

    I think if you clean install it probably does a trial until you enter your upgraded key. But useful to have if you upgrade 7 or 8 and upgrade your key. It also lets you upgrade immediately without waiting for tray icon or windows update.

    I was just saying that's where I personally used it as I have never even touched Unix. Maybe a better way I should've said it is: This is a feature I used a lot on my Mac. Of course, I only use my Mac for work and nothing else. Never even knew XP had it to be honest. That's interesting to know. I'm actually glad they brought it as a main feature to outshine Macs.
