Compared to what?
An NCIX special?
I’ll tell you what’s bloody ridiculous… installing Windows XP on a computer and as soon as you connect it to the internet it’s infected with a worm. Bloody ridiculous? How about 14 different spyware programs on a computer from “regular use” ? That’s bloody ridiculous.
I think this computer is a success, if all people can come up with are “there’s a weird illusion with the case.” How about not having to deal with viruses? Or crazy windows updates and spyware? How about spending your valuable time USING a computer, instead of FIXING a computer?
Honestly, except for those people who really enjoy and know how to fix windows and tweak their system, I have NEVER seen a WindowsXP install that hasn’t been completely and utterly screwed up with spyware, scumware, viruses, DLL hell, etc. Every single “normal” person I’ve visited with a WindowsXP machine has problems.
And you know that’s true, 'cause all your relatives are constantly calling with their Windows problems, aren’t they? Drop into anybody’s house who uses WindowsXP (and Internet Explorer, usually), and you’ll find a hosed computer.[/quote]
DUDE! I was talking about the design
Not only that but a person just needs to have one or two anti-adware programs on…not 14, thats a wee bit over-exagerating but I get your point.
I myself have never really bothered updating windows and its worked fine since I have stopped installing the dozens of updates you have to do. Only real updates you need are for graphics and direct x. And maybe a few usb things.
Well every single normal person…thats talking about people who rather not even educate themselves on the matters at hand. If the system fucks up its a hackers fault or there own. True fact mind you, I dunno you are more qualified than I am but I still beleive one should at least try a lil’ harder to keep windows stable. Honestly it isn’t that tough
Sadly most of my relatives live in toronto, the only people that call me are the ones that have actual problems with there windows, like having to re-format or something else that is big enough to actually worry about.
Keep in mind I rather use Linux over the Mac & Windows, I simply use windows cause my siblings and parents do not wish to use Linux as it is “too difficult”…and because I rather not have to download quite a few programs to get one game running on linux.
You brang up good points, some are faulty. Others are 100 percent true
