As everyone knows, every other Windows release is a lemon (3.1 good, 95 bad,...XP good, Vista bad etc.). So Microsoft finally realised this themselves, and knowing the next release would be bad, they decided to be honest for once and skipped the (presumably) good Windows 9.
...and 120 film, too:). I have a bunch of old cameras, both for 35mm film and 6x6. I regularly use them, and develop my own B&W films, and make prints, too. Its much, much, much, MUCH more fun than using digital cameras, although I admittedly take more photos with my digital.
I went digital quite a long time ago, and my current main camera is a Micro Four Thirds Olympus, but lately I've been rediscovering the joys of film photography with my Dad's old Yashicaflex C (1955, 60mm film) and Miranda Fv (1967, 35mm film). I'm even thinking of starting to develop the black-and-white films for myself.
In a legendary 80s Finnish sitcom "Tankki Täyteen" a not-so-bright priest says "If God had intended us to listen to a stereo music, He would have given us two ears" ("stereo music" used here as a synonym of "youth music").
I've always hated the "Icons-On-A-Desktop"-design priciple. Back then when I still used Windows(TM) (That's almost 10 years ago...); I went to great lengths to remove every icon from my desktop - even the trashcan. Now as a Linux user, I use desktop environments / window managers which either does not support icons on desktop at all, or allow to turn them off.
A few years back I was very surprised to find that there wasn't any 'Tape Calculator Emulators' for Linux. I seem to have missed this; thanks for bringing this to attention! (Although it seems to be more-or-less abandoned project... I wonder whether it compiles on modern Gentoo?).
