"How come I can't drag the taskbar to the top of the screen?"
"Why isn't there a compiler installed?"
"Why is it so **** slow? I bought this computer a year ago!"
"I didn't download any updates, how can it possibly install any?"
"Why can't I just search a repository for software?"
"Why would I need to reboot just because I installed a new program?"
...and so on. To quote Ocean's 11 (I think?) "I had. A bad. Experience."

Still am pretty upset that they going to dump XP. Like they did with Win98, WinME and Win2000.

I don't like them because I once used windows because my one of friends said I should try XP ( I had only used linux up till then ).
Odd, most people start with Windows and migrate to Linux. You are the first person I have ever heard of starting with Linux (and then trying Windows). How is it that you started with Linux first?

So I was always used to a lot of power, and contrary to what most think, linux was actually pretty easy for me to learn. Having to learn windows for school, however, was an exercise in decreasing my expectations of what a computer should do.

Also, I've noticed a few things since vista came out: People talking about microsoft in the past tense. "It wouldn't" "he brought" "microsoft made it famous". I've noticed it more and more. Does this imply that microsoft is dyng in the public mind?
Microsoft is far from dying. They still have billions of dollars to spend. Hopefully they'll turn out the Mini-Windows, or MinWin, a lot of people have been hoping for.
