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.

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!
