Totally agree with this post.

Also, if you really want to have an "adult conversation", present us with a technically sound solution. Stop using "dark room" and "shadow is spreading" analogies to paint an evil image of the current situation. Being "dark" is not bad, we *like* it that way because it's safer for the end user.

All of which would have been fine if they did it correctly, instead they:
1. Changed default app file associations
2. Upgraded to buggy or non-working drivers
3. Installed unwanted software that was difficult to remove (Windows OneDrive)
4. Installed monitor software that should ask for permission
And probably other issues I've missed. Don't mess up my system which I'm using to do work and depend on for my livelihood.

So true. While the video by Parent is very good (I'm glad I watched it), the problem with videos is that they fail to address the differences in learning preferences. Some people learn better with videos while others prefer reading. Videos also limit everyone to the same speed and concentration thresholds. Reading allows you to concentrate and comprehend at your own level and speed.

PS: Is the D1 discussion setting broken? I had to switch to D2, reload, change my discussion settings before allowed to post with my username. WTF!?

OK, I guess I didn't fully understand how a revolt at Slashdot works and I've been here a long time. :) It's funny that my post gets marked down for being slightly positive yet others get modded up for saying only "Beta sucks!"

I tried modding in the big Timothy response article but most of the good comments were already visible. I'd really be happy with a site that just has article summaries and comments. I don't care so much about redesign, just fix the current issues.
