Submission + - Confessions of a SysAdmin (crunchgear.com) 1

Mr.Fork writes: "Scott Merrill from Crunchgear has a confession. He really really hates computers, in particular, WINDOWS-based computers. He writes: I hate computers. No, really, I hate them. I love the communications they facilitate, I love the conveniences they provide to my life, and I love the escapism they sometimes afford; but I actually hate the computers themselves.

Does his editorial speak to all of us in similiar IT related fields? Do we all silently hate the complexities and idiocentricities computers have like error messages and stupid designs that make no sense to the common user that make our tech professions miserable? IS Scott's onto something...?"
