The Vista

Ah Windows. I suppose I should be grateful to Windows because were it not for this Operating System, my blood pressure would be three points lower.

I kid.

Yeah, but not really.

Managing Windows is my day job. My hobby is complaining about managing Windows. It’s fun and so easy, even my mother-in-law does it.

Here are the four things I’ve always had to complain about every single version of Windows since version 3.11 Windows for Workgroups:

  • The error messages are mostly obtuse, sometimes insane, and often confusing.
  • Infuriating Inconsistency. 
  • Documentation is sparse.
  • Reliance on third-party products for any useful functionality.

I will go into each with more detail in coming posts.

Where Am I?
