I'm using Windows seven today.....

Kind of weird after using Linux Mint for so long. But since i found a free download to try, I couldn't resist. I'm still trying to figure out why anyone with a internet connection or a library card would ever waste money on this junk. Plenty of operating systems out there for free. Linux being the most well known.

Other than new people in computing, most people realize they can do anything on the computer for free. It used to be that you couldn't play games without Windows but now it's cheaper and easier to buy a PlayStation and go at it. Everything else (play music, browse the web, office stuff, printing, etc.) is available.

Maybe they just need viruses and spy ware to keep computer techs busy? I haven't had this problem in quite a while since I prefer to use non window systems to use on the internet. In other words, to browse websites , especially banks, is asking for it.

Something called Identity theft, if I remember correctly.

But in order to run Magic Jack for our home phone I need to leave windows running on Patti's computer until they port it to Linux.

Oh well,  how's the Oba mama's recovery working for you?
