Using a command line is like second nature to some people, yet most of my generation (born with the fall of the USSR) have never even seen one. Remember that what is simple and straight forward to you may become arcane and mysterious for the future users.

I recently got one of thos fake AV, and I never clicked anything. It's not like they ask you all the time. No, I did not download SpecialVideoCodec.exe from searching "Extreme Midget Fart Porn XXX" on google. I was browsing a forum on cats and I suddenly had MalwareDoctor installed. Luckily I somewhat know my way around computers and only saw this as a challenge.

God, I use PCs at home and Macs at work. I absolutely loathe clicking FORCE QUIT on Pro Tools when it freezes (every 2 minutes). I have to click 20 times without it doing anything, with this fucking beachball laughing at me, pretending everything's alright and "just works". Give me a good old "CTRL+ALT+DEL, Processes, click on Pro Tools, Delete" any time of the day :) Ugly, but it works.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
