Quick Note To The Microsoft Corporation

Fryday, 27 Promise, 2014

When a computer geek for thirty plus years needs to ask where the off button is – and when that off button is not even on the main desktop screen of the desktop environment that is similar to those in the past – you have some serious design issues with the new design.

So – you can set up a Windows desktop in Windows 8 that kinda sorta behaves like the desktop environment that has been around for those thirty plus years while you stumble through relearning how to do everything in Windows 8 that you finally figured out in Windows 3.1 / 95 / 98 / Me / 2000 / XP / 7. But you have to switch back over to the new and improved (cough) ‘desktop’ to shut the frelling thing down.

In other news, the free open source OS Linux has a significant number of distributions (basically, different custom versions of the Operating System set up for specific types of system usage) available. A significant number of them are free, including Ubuntu which has a pretty good OS for desktops.

Share and Enjoy!
