10 December 2014. The Cabinet Weighs In On Windows 8

My computer was showing some signs of age, so I broke down and picked up a new computer around the Thanksgiving holidays, to be ready in case of a complete system failure. I bought a new HP machine with Windows 7… my computer geeks all told me to avoid Windows 8. Of course, now that I got the new one, my old computer started working just fine. However, I figure that I didn’t waste my money. I’ll just keep my new one in the box until the old one crashes (which it will). Since Windows 7 is harder and harder to find, I think I did the right thing. If my present machine lasts another year, there probably won’t be any more computers with Windows 7 out there by that time. I don’t know anything about computers. I’m just going by what my geeks told me, and I found that Windows 7 is easy to operate for a computer moron like myself!

My Cabinet is UNANIMOUS… everybody (including me) HATES Windows 8. It has all the problems of early Vista… plus some more, for good measure. Remember what Windows 7 is… it’s a revamped and debugged Vista, but they had to call it something else as its early fuckups utterly trashed the Vista brand’s street rep. The buzz has it that the new OS coming out is to Windows 8 what Windows 7 was to Vista… that is, a debugged version that had to have a new name as the old marque is irretrievably in the shitter. Not boring, is it? Pass the jug…
