I miss the simplicity of it all. Sure, everyone pines for "simpler times" no matter what era they're from, but there's a striking difference in simplicity between computers of the 90s and computers of today. The biggest change is internet access and the requirement for it. Back on Windows 98 and Windows XP (and even, to some extent, Windows 7), things just worked. Sure, you could have an "active desktop" that displayed web content, but it wasn't a requirement. The only DRM was software keys or manual lookups ("what's the word on page 93"), and we could physically manage our disks and documentation. Single-player games could be played without an internet connection, and usually the first releases of applications were actually stable, with no Day 1 patches or DLC.
These days, I hope either Windows 7 is supported forever, or Microsoft releases another OS that I actually like. Windows 8 and 10 just don't do it for me, and I have little hope that their successors will, either. I don't know. I think, somewhere along the way, I just got stuck in 2010 and now I want to stay there forever.
