Concerning question #4 in this post, I have a new answer! When I bought my current laptop a year ago it arrived loaded up with Windows 8. Meaning that it did not possess the Windows start-up menu that I was fond of. Not so much for its fabulousness, mostly for my familiarity with it. Sensing my mild despair, Reid consulted the interwebs and discovered an app called Clamshell which emulates the old start-up menu. So there you have it. It's possible, at least for moi, to enjoy an app without realizing it.
