I am sure anyone can cope with it, but why bother when a superior interface exists?

IF it is superior, it is not superior by a massive amount. Did you ever try a Windows 7 tablet? I have a Windows 7 tablet, and let me tell you, it is NOT easy to use.

Unlikely, if ISP servers are caching.

ISP servers are notorious for being unreliable.

I think you miss the point.

You say "why should I bother to cache DNS lookups on my computer?". Those running the DNS servers could equally say "why should we bother to cache DNS lookups on our server?". And if everyone did that the root servers wouldn't be able to cope with the overwhelming number of DNS queries they would recieve. But DNS is a distributed directory and works because every effort is made to avoid such a situation by caching results that are going to be needed time after time.

The smooth running of the Internet relies upon the fact that those running the DNS servers act responsibly and make sure that they consume the minimum bandwidth and place the smallest possible demand on up-line servers. We owe it to other users to do the same thing with our computers and not selfishly squander bandwidth and the resources of remote servers by making hundreds of unneeded DNS queries.

Well no I use a PC not a tablet.

We not talking about tablets, we tralking about changes been made for the desktop experience.

I get it, you like touch, you like windows 8, but dont start telling other people they are forced to change to touch, or a touch interface.

As far as I am concerned microsoft are moving in the right direction and as I said before I will be having a go with win 8.1.
