Sure. As long as the same is done with Windows. We went from XP to 7 and every edition of Office with no training. In those cases, we all taught ourselves and each other informally. I taught myself Ubuntu at home, so it can be done. Let's just compare apples to apples.

Comment Re:Jesus is coming (Score 1) 129

"The event" means Jesus is on his way.

Ironic then that it's a false alarm.

But even if it did happen, it happened two million years ago, when mankind was little more than short walking chimps. Hard to believe Jesus made an enormous explosion in some other galaxy that would have no effect here 2 million years before being born. Or maybe you're just being funny. Hard to tell sometimes.

I find it strange that people generally exhibit good critical thinking skills when it comes to Wikipedia (fact checking, understanding sources, looking for biases), but gleefully eat up their favorite news channels without a second of thought. No source of information is free of biases or errors, but at least Wikipedia actively works to avoid them.

Essentially, it is getting impossible to spend your own money.

First of all, if you're using a credit card, it's not your money. You're borrowing from someone else. Second, WTF? Companies want to get paid, so spending money is only getting easier. NFCs, RFID keypasses, POS readers everywhere, even the vending machines take credit and debit cards now.
