i said desktop mode offers things metro doesn't offer right now. maybe it's issues with flash, maybe plugins in general or something else they are doing, but with desktop they have more resources than they have on (what it's called now? Modern?)
i'm not sure of what resources they're using, i'm no specialist, and after the update, i think i'm sticking with IE10. it's fast and i've a emotional attachment to IE, never liked when in 7 i was forced into chrome and firefox due to IE speed and flash bugs.
and i had enough of chrome own bugs, i wan't my old friends back, the IE bugs
I'm brazilian and english (well, human languages in general) aren't my best skill, so, sorry by my english. (if you want we can speak in C# or VB.Net =p)
And I was just about to complain that when I ran chrome yesterday after a fresh download/install on win2012 from the desktop with a 27 inch monitor that it went to Metro mode and took over the whole screen.
Edit: Hmm. Maybe that was some momentary glitch as its working now..
For all his billions he cannot stop his hair from falling out.
What a crap hair cut. He would be better off shaving it bald and looking cool than that travesty.
He could even afford a half decent wig or some implants.
Still, if he wants to look like a prick that is up to him.
He has a point though. You would think that having a vote where every vote counts would be more in the American tradition of democracy.
An absolute majority in the popular vote would be fairer and mean that there would be fewer anomalies.

An absolute majority for The Donald's sake would still mean Obama won. No doubt he'd moan about an absolute majority leaving people unrepresented and how the electoral college system safeguards against this.
We're fine ones to talk about every vote counting anyway. The weighting of UK votes is a bit like this:
Socialism (play /ˈsoʊʃəlɪzəm/) is an economic system characterised by social ownership of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy, and a political philosophy advocating such a system. "Social ownership" may refer to cooperative enterprises, common ownership, state ownership, or citizen ownership of equity.
There was a slight irony in my statement. I was just picking up on the American right's tendency to label Obama as a "degenerate atheist and socialist", despite the fact that his policies are closer to the Republican party of the 80s than today's GOP.
I've not been watching this coverage with much attention to detail (not that those providing the coverage have been doing so either), but as I understand it Barry O'Bama the Irish fella won and is POTUS for 4 more years.
Romney lost and so is now President of Canada.
Is that right?
Every man can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends.
He was the Libertarian Party's candidate. Overall, I'd say my personal views are most inline with their party, but he clearly wasn't going to win so I instead used my vote against the major candidate I liked the least.
