Journal Journal: [Beloved] A Pretty Song (redux) 2

From the complications of loving you
I think there is no end or return.
No answer, no coming out of it.

Which is the only way to love, isn't it?
This isn't a playground, this is
earth, our heaven, for a while.

Therefore I have given precedence
to all my sudden, sullen, dark moods
that hold you in the center of my world.

You're right about 2000. But it was never positioned as a consumer OS, and that's the line of reasoning. 98 -> ME -> XP -> Vista -> 7 -> 8. It breaks down if you include 95 or 98 SE, because neither of those truly sucked.

And yes, 7 is only decent compared to Vista. Not that I've used it much; I no longer own a Windows box (and my intention is never to have another one), and at work we use Server 2008. It is possible to turn off a lot of the nasty UI stuff, at least in the server OS.

I still read. I hardly ever post. There's some poetry I've been meaning to put up here, but I never seem to get around to it.

I do like seeing your JEs. And the occasional funny back-and-forth of people who take this all so seriously.

I read Multiply from time to time, but I have trouble remembering who is who, outside of the core people. Most of my interaction is on Plurk.com these days. Think of it as threaded Twitter - the minimalism appeals to me. Also much busier in real life, but I have started writing a blog. No one reads it, though. :-)
