Yes, you do.
1. Go in the BIOS.
2. Disable "secure boot".
3. Buy an OEM copy of Windows 7 (you can find them for as little as 30 $).
4. Install it.

Or just replace steps 3 and 4 with:

3. Download Linux Mint / Ubuntu
4. Install it

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Until you can get Linux to run this easily and natively....

Yeah, that's still not 'native'. It's pretending to be Windows, not there actually being enough of a Linux install base to justify making a dedicated port of Skyrim to Linux.

Or, better yet, install both Linux and W7 and boot one or the other system according to your needs.

RE: I just want to bitch about Google Chrome and Windows 8
Chrome being slow might be related to those 80 windows updates. If your computer is downloading and installing updates constantly it's going to be slow. Give it a few days to finish the updates and see if things improve.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: I just want to bitch about Google Chrome and Windows 8
I didn't really have a choice, Windows 8 came on the new laptop I bought. I was perfectly content with Windows 7 on my old laptop, but I needed a new laptop because my little sister broke my old laptop.

Last night it installed 102 updates. Today it's done about 48.

I guess it's not AS slow, but it still make me want to rip my balls off.

RE: I just want to bitch about Google Chrome and Windows 8
My son 'upgraded' to Windows 8 a while back, found out that nothing worked with it as far as his software for school and lots of other things and he got rid of it within about two days.

My laptop has a few years on it and runs Vista...I know I will need a new one soon but already know it won't have Windows 8.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
