    The logic for change of most things (including windows) is quite simple. Maybe a scenario we can all relate to will help:

    Are your underpants dirty? Yes! Then change them.

    Are your underpants dirty? No! You should still change them because you have been wearing them for more than 24 hours.

    So, as you can all see, we should update Windows as we have been using it for a while.


    Ordinarily, I'd close a thread at this point and mark it [solved], possibly even issue a couple of bans in the process. But, I am curious to see how many of you change things regularly so we shall leave it open.
    I'll have to send you a copy of a Car Talk podcast from a few months ago. One of the hosts was saying how if you just showered in your underwear, you never had to wash them. You just couldn't get dressed for about 4 hours. Maybe this could be a whole new marketing opportunity for makers of edible underwear. Cuts down on laundry, you don't change so much as replace, and it's a convenient snack to boot! And the producers will love it, because if people are eating their underwear, they need to keep buying more. Can we say "revenue stream" boys and girls?

    Put on one leg at a time? Or are we talking the fasten then zip or zip then fasten debate?

    And why are you discriminating against people who wear shorts?! Or women who like wearing skirts? I'm right there with you if you want to discriminate against kilt wearers. Geez you Asus peop... Errr... Wait a minute.

    Don't worry, I'm not going to change how I look at the issue but if putting out the truth is so offensive that the thread should be closed and I get a BAN for it then all of the threads on this forum should be closed and the entire community should be BANNED for being ROG'ers. Yes I read the last two lines multiple times and no matter how I read it I keep coming back with a Bad Taste in my mouth of a threat not to discuss Windows 8. Arne should be really upset over this since he was trying to get an Idea of what others thought about it and if his fear was justified or not. Just like I asked a Question about Linux and the CHVF and have gotten no response about my issue but yet I have done my best to help others. Yes putting out things like that isn't what this community is supposed to be about or how an ADMIN who Represents ASUS is supposed to act like, but instead each helping each other freely with out a threat of [SOLVED Thread Closed] and people getting BANNED for helping one another. If this is worth me getting BANNED for saying then by all means PLEASE BAN ME!

    Settle down. I'll let Raja speak for himself, but my guess would be that normally by that point these kinds of threads have devolved into a lot of pointless bickering and a couple of people are deserving of a couple days ban to cool off. In this case it devolved into an amusing discussion of pants, and Raja's clear prejudice against shorts and skirts. (Yes, that's a joke)

    So just take a deep breath of that stuff they give you at the dentist, and relax.

    Don't take him seriously Scott, he's a hot-head that flies off the handle at the drop of a pin. Even jokes get him riled up One of these days he'll ban himself me thinks...heheh

    And for the passers by out there. Us ASUS guys tend to like having a joke or two in the general chat area - unfortunately not everyone shares the same humor so the outcome is a mixed bag.


    Real stats: Out of 34K members 4 IP bans for real pieces of work. One closed thread last month that went "south" (joke). I would say that is pretty good going. And please note folks, take a gander at the forum threads - how many do you see that are marked [solved]? I think you get my drift, it was a joke. That whole post is a joke actually, and if you cannot or refuse to see that, I'd say this section of the forum is probably best avoided if such things offend.
