Why I hate Windows

Anyone who knows me knows that I am an avowed Macaholic, but it’s not just blind devotion – there is a reason I love the Mac operating system. I have no frustrations with it. Period. It just works the way it’s supposed to. I don’t run the Windows operating system on either of my Macs the way some other geeks do, and I won’t ever – to me it just seems like that would “pollute” my Macs.

I do all of my ‘production’ work (e.g. web design, documents I produce, etc.) on my Macs, however, in the course of my daily duties I generally have to provide tech support for a few Windows PCs here and in several remote offices. Pretty much daily one of the Windows users I support has a problem, sometimes more than one problem. The amount of time and effort that goes into trying to keep that operating system operational is mind-boggling – full of bugs and vulnerabilities that can, and do, get exploited, Windows just strikes me as one big excercise in futility……..aaarrgh!

What prompted this post is this very funny graphic someone sent me by email – it so perfectly describes how I feel about Windows that I just had to share it:
