Couldn't agree more !
Family in bed and I've read all the comments on here on my new toy. How sad ?
GNU guys invading a store is not the way to go.
I love Linux and have used it for over a decade. The old Linux desktop had advanced features such as multiple views with easy access. Windows has never offered the same. Why is such a powerful feature not being touted ? I can do things at the command line that no other system can achieve. So massive power. But a modern Linux distro does my head in. Yes it installs fine but WTF with the UI ? Really don't like it.
Don't like Windows either. Don't like paying the security tax. But windows XP has outlasted anything else I can think of in terms of on going support.
Never used Apple kit so I can't comment. But a locked in environment is no go for me. So I won't be trying.
My Android mobile phone is great. This tablet is great. It works.
Windows 8 looks good for mobile devices too.
The bottom line is I no longer have time to spend fixing things that don't work. I have more pressing things. I expect things to work without further effort. Sorry if you consider me lazy.
Computers are a tool. Use whatever you want, or doesn't do your head in.
Seasons greetings to you all :-)
