Video Update: Microsoft Lost MeSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Fri, 02/08/2013 - 00:10
Video Update Jobs vs. Ballmer
From time to time I still come back to work on this clunky old Dell / Windows 7 desktop. The sad thing is that it is only two years old. It can't read my catalog of Type 1 fonts; I converted them to .otf, but I still have to reinstall them every time I want to use one, and I have no idea why. The fonts that are installed look crappy, and I don't know how to fix them. I had to buy a new printer and a new scanner when I "upgraded" from my Windows XP system that I had for 5 years. That was a far superior system to this one. This one, the disk drive is always running - doing something. Making noise. I have to shut it down to avoid hearing it.
I still prefer my 5 year old Macbook pro to this machine. It is much faster. This thing is so slow, and it is only two years old. And Windows 8? Forget it? I don't think I'll ever buy another Microsoft machine again.
// End rant.
I won't be so vain as to tag this a "DP Original." It isn't worthy. While you're at it vote it down (unless you agree). I should have written a post on how much I still love my beat up old Macbook pro - the one with the broken speakers.
Over and out.
