i've been building/repairing computer of all description for years.
when people come to me asking "should i buy a Mac or a PC?"
my stock answer is "Why would you want a Mac unless it's raining?"

i must have a different Virgin to all those who complain.
I have been with them since before blueyonder, before yorkshire cable became virgin
350 internet, weekend phone (only because it's cheaper to have a phone line then not)
TVMix, (two boxex a V6 and a Tivo)
let me down once in all the years I can remember,
£67.00 a month
for the second box to show the same selection of programs as the first (multiroom) £7.50 a month,
thats in the £67.00 allready quoted.
even get a "magic eye" for virgin these days, and its hdmi quality not the silly old coax you use with sky.
BT and SKY have both tried to poach me but the best either could offer was 16Mb, and SKY wanted over £80
the phones are great.
the " tiles " can be re sized, re pleaced, re positioned as you want. they can be set as folders to include whatever icons you want.
the batteries last all day ( or can at least be swapped out during the day)
i have an iphone from work and a galaxy s8, both are compilcated and slow in opperation
the only "apps" i have not been able to get are the stupid ones like Mrs Smiths Nail bar at the end of the street. Why would I want such a thing.
it doesn't come cramed full of adverts like the android and i doesn't require a second mortgage like an apple.
the real reason the windows phone didn't catch on is that it came way too late to the party
people had allready bought a phone and were used to that format...
In our house there are, all told, seven P.C's. running Windows 10 plus one Server 2010 and one Linux machine.
The Windows ones never give problems ,
The server one, I have no idea because I don't use it.
The Linux one occasionally crashes and as no-one knows anything about Linux, we have to call my son over to fix it.
Windows works for the vast, VAST majority of people. I don't know how many people complain about it, but you won't find any here.
And it cost nothing...Did you buy Windows 7, well ever since then its been a free give away..
All the computers in the house are regularly upgraded, No.1 son gets the latest and all the hardware moves down the family untill I get the last hand me down..
I am currently running i7 devils canyon, 16mb Ram, 960SSd, ATI 7970 in eyefinnity with six screens......windows never lets us down
If you don't like it, stop moaning and try something else...best of luck with that then.
I have been with Virgin since it was Telewest, BlueYonnder and Yorkshire Cable
All told about twenty years
It fails maybe once or twice a year and then only for a couple of hours.
Most failures are caused by Mains Power failures because I live in a village on the edge of town and the local SubStation keeps failing
340 down, 26 up, v6, tivo, phone. £50.00 beat that anyone?
