The old computer was Windows XP. I know - when I first got it I complained that I didn't like XP but I got over that. Now I don't like Windows 7. It thinks it is smarter than me and it thinks that it knows what I want better than I do. It doesn't. It has no clue. I shudder to think how long it is going to take to get it used to doing things my way.
And then there are the programs. You know how it goes. You find a program you like, and you install it. When an upgrade comes along, you go with it. Now, five or six years later, I dare you to figure out where the original program is and how to install all of the updates. Multiply that by the columns of programs on my machine. It's a task big enough to give NASA a headache, let alone me. Some one should invent a way to just copy and paste the entire program list from my old computer to my new one. Actually someone told me that they did, but it would cost more than the computer itself. I guess I'll just sit here and feed program disks into the DVD drive.
How about you? Do you like getting a new computer, or do you miss your old one?
