RantPortrait Mode on a Laptop (W8 rant) PinprotectorMarc Clifton5-Jun-14 2:30 
My gf turned on her laptop this morning and the thing was in Portrait mode.
 
Now, that would have been easy enough to get out of, except that the touchpad was still in landscape mode! Grrr...
 
And by what magic did W8 decide that the display should be in portrait mode?
 
I know a lot of you like W8, but I have to say, it's biggest pile of crap to come out Microsoft, ever. It is CONSTANTLY getting in the way, either popping up stuff on the sidebar, or switching from desktop mode to brain-dead metro view, or taking 10 mouse clicks to print something where 2 would do in W7.
 
I hates it. I hates the name Windows Eightsees.
