I started computing 25 years ago. I have in that time had many computers. I started at work with a 286 then progressed to a 386 of my own. This I eventually up graded to a 486 with all the bells and whistles. After I left the RAF I worked abroad where I bought numerous computers for far less than we pay here. What ever the latest CPU was I had it. I bought my first lappy just before I left Saudi to come live on my boat. Since then I have have had several more culminating with this ACER which is number 6. Always I have had a better CPU than before. I can say with some certainty that never, ever have I had a lappy that is as slow as this fecker. From my point of view in 25 years both the computer companies and Microsoft have failed to fix many basic problems with their systems.
I have millions of gigabytes of memory where as I used to have, at the beginning, only 1 meg. But back in this days programmers had to be clever to use 1 meg as efficiently as possible. Today they are spoiled. They are greedy for memory and write with abandon giving no care for the people for whom they write their programs for, US!
Microsoft, as we all know, have consistently failed to produce a product that improves on the failures of previous versions. Instead the new version has many many many problems of it own. What amazes me is we know this and WE STILL KEEP BUYING CRAP!.
