Comment: Too much, already... (Score 1) 33

The best comment I think I have seen on artificial intelligence was at a company I worked for in the 1960s. The company advertised for "artificial intelliigence," when what they meant was that they wanted a specialist in artificial intelligence. Someone pinned the ad on the bulletin board, circled the desire for artificial intelligence, and wrote under it: "too much in the company already."

My wife and I are grandparents, although a few years short of the 82 mark. I'm hesitant to recommend any flavor of Windows to anyone who just wants email, a web browser, and maybe a spreadsheet or word processing capability. I've had fair luck getting older XP users to transition to Zorin, which I believe may be intended for that purpose. Mint Linux, which I use, would come in a close second. But some Windows users just must have Windows, possibly because they think they're familiar with it. Being forced to use Windows 7 or 8 may change a lot of that.

How many NASA managers does it take to screw in a lightbulb? "That's a known problem... don't worry about it."
