Just for the record, it would be most unsettling if the person who built or maintained my car didn't know how to drive a manual transmission. In the same vain, I'm not terribly upset that my admin assistant isn't well versed in computer memory management.

It sure would go a long way in helping to get this once great city heading back in the right direction.
Ding, ding, we have a winner!!!
Yes, exactly this!!
Exactly! I still loath and the ribbon and always will. It is an abomination of a UI element.
And Metro is even worse!
I totally agree. I have a new Win 7 machine with 6GB of RAM and a nice fast i5 quad-core processor and I don't see any benefits over my old 3GB XP machine at work. What I do see is the same old Windows with a new shiny interface that makes it harder to find the settings I could always find easily in XP. There's something to be said for an OS being 10 years old; it's mature! Why the hell should I have to learn how to find and operate everything all over again? Oh yes, so Microsoft can make more money!
Yes and leave it to Microsoft to break with the age old standard that any key combination containing F1 provides online help, not access to the navigation system.
Thank you. The current version of FireFox is 4. It was just released a couple of weeks ago. Sorry, but beta doesn't count here.
Absolutely! This is in no way, shape or form news. It's tabloid trash!
