I wouldn't go back to Windurs if they PAID me! No MS (or [cr]Apple) products are allowed on my 'puters...period! Just as I wouldn't eat McDonald's "food" if it were free!

Note that "Blue" is the code name for windoze 8.1 ... probably the character limit or bad white space handling truncated it from "Blue Screen".
