Another Gates mess
Making a fortune from turning out half baked sotware has perversely seen Gates as 'much admired' Microsoft software is so bad and so vulnerable that hundred of dollars are spent on the life of any computer I've had or heard of simply resolving issues...some of which are, granted, caused by the criminal minds which think its amusing or find it enriching to interfere with people's computers, bank accounts and so on. Still Microsoft has not made impervious software..after decades. They prefer to worry about other wampum, or trinket, -generated sales to the electroic device addicts.
On another issue, the spread of very poor spelling and grammar and construction through "spellcheck" 's ghastly, Americanised "English" which sees students as well as supposedly "higher-educated" people, beguiled into such horrors as commencing sentences with prepositions and /or conjunctions. As soon as I see "And" or "But" for example commencing a sentence I realise I am dealing with someone so far behind even the "comma or semi-colon ignoramus", that I wonder about his content.
I suppose in a world where the stupidity of being a member of "Facebook" or Twitter" or other spy sites such as Google and Yahoo is so widespread and adopted even by people who posture themselves as intelligent, one cannot expect much common sense from those who see computers as their drug of choice and Gates as the Candy man.
The story in the report which initiated this letter along with other comments, isn't quite as accurate as it should be; yes, a huge number of businesses are holding onto XP, by far and away the most reliable of anything the Gates mob have turned out...some for which he should have been locked up or asset stripped..such as "Millennium". Many don't get much joy out of the more recent versions of IE or Outlook Express...still held by many against Outlook...That said, not only are so many HOLDING XP, many many actually dump the Win 7 off their new computers and install XP; that's a far more damning indicator of the Win7 unpopularity and mistrust of microsoft than simply 'not changing'...which is quaintly but often so incorrectly put as "upgrading".
One of the items I use a lot is email. I have win 7 on my laptop but I avoid it because the email format is just so pathetically awful I can't stand using it...it's a time wasting bloody pest whch hasn't a thing over the email aspect of 8 ..after which it became a menace..I suppose, when you spend your life turning out software for which there is no longer any excuse to have defective but are banking billions (and more squillions are sucked out of the users world-wide by "IT" experts for extremely overpriced repairs) simply to appeas progressive, one might wonder about your morals.
His supposed leaving of his in my opinion largely ill gotten gains to "charity" may not be enough to get him through the eye of the needle. My opinion is not 'sour grapes' as you would see it...it's about what I see as his part in a lack of responsibility endemic in "electronic media and comms" and churned out to people with almost no concentration span left.
There's nothing to elevating about seeing children at school "texting" in class, during breaks...or even adults at dinner doing that..It's disgusting and almost depressing to see how computers and mobile comms has dragged the social world into a mental abyss which then "en masse" draws them into the asylums of Facebook and Twitter so as to not only expose people who under no circumstances want to be associated with any such spy-site site but do themselves permenant lack of privacy and even seious damage .
Even the ABC advertised for them at no charge, the news and the appalling "Q and A" dirge being riddled with "Tweets" and advertising for them..against polcy I'd say.
It's disgusting to find students ownloading serious pornography onto their phones during class...Is that "your problem"..yes it is , it's one in which irresponsible adults and avaricious adults and sick minded adults have constructed and allowed to be widespread, technical comms which are not only socially destructive in the truly human sense but which are things of fashion costing us billions in cash and in wasted time....to what end?. Even emails are, after junk mail in the letter box, the most lowly regarded form of communication by Governments.
Is the world a better place in 2012 than it was in 1960?..unequivocally NO."Being informed" is the ecstacy tablet of the "Garden of Eden" which itself is the hedonistic illusion created to control mankind for a new order. Instead of dealing with the real world and protesting furiously, the appalling daily crimes against humanity, and others are cogitating over XP V win 7!
I hope I am distracting you. How many use their internet to investigate, away from christian-hysterical, nazi-fixated, US hysteria and other websites and deliberately misleading websites the forces of evil (Central Bankers, Bilderbergers, Masonic Lodges,, Zionism, CIA, Mossad, World bank, IMF and so on and on) which are seeing us doing nothing effective while mass murder takes place daily througout the world. Those croimes are OUR crimes as we p[permt them by our governments or supported by our supine governments to profit one or all of those powerbrokers. Whilst your head is buried in your computer or immediate issues with it, they are manipulating life as we know it.
The solution is straightforward. Microsoft continues to support XP as long as there is demand. On the money it and Gates owns that's a pittance. Why should clients who so clearly want XP be periodically forced into some other half baked software.? The hysteria over any new comms product has drawn now 'flibberty jibbert' computer addicts away from commonsense approach to using computers. Few use even 1% of the potential and that will be I feel sure, he same proportion as gain any advantage from new software generated to impose a need to buy new base software...
As an entity we ought to demand of Gates he get off his fat backside and create a near perfect software based say on XP and forget about "bigger, better, brighter" until he can actually show that his people and he himself have the technical expertise and the will to turn out a product which can justfiably be called "good stuff"!! I can't see any product since XP which for the majority of PC users would add any quality of life whatsoever..but then, I don't get my jollies from change and fashion., more flashing lights and sales gimmicks.Just being able to own a computer and software which works flawlessly would be my 'computer heaven'.
In closing ,computers are not good for health when used without plenty of sunshine exercise and distractions....Get the priorities right..life isn't about computers unless you have capitulated.
