The Truth About Staying

What it's really like to move to Windows Vista. I saw a couple of articles linked to and they rang some bells. Many of the points made apply to Vista as well as Mac OS X and Ubuntu. So here it is.

People will ridicule you for using Vista.

Particularly those morons who don't have the money to spend $400 on the Ultimate version. Plus $250 on a new video card. Plus $200 and some more RAM. A couple hundred more on a new hard drive. And maybe a new PC altogether when they realize Vista doesn't cozy up to "old" computers. Idiots!

You'll feel like you're in a little club.

A club, you know? Like that club where Brad Pitt kicked Ed Norton's ass!! Wouldn't that be soooo cool!!

People will help you for no reason...

...other than charging you money.

Peppermint 7 Released

Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
