This would be good.
A button which switches all the stupid "we're trying to look clever" shit off.
I've been reading the comments on all these threads, and today my opinion is that most techies posting complaints fit into three camps.
1. I want a server which I also use to read emails.
2. I want it just to work and be fast.
3. I want a Mac.
I personally want to chose what the machine does. I can't understand why with Vista that I had to use, I was sitting there reading a document, but the disk was trashing away.
Oh. I also want 32GB of ram, that caches C:\Program files, C:\Windows and C:\Documents and Settings. (or C:\Users if you've mental health issues.) Think
([HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]
"LargeSystemCache"=dword:00000001) on Steroids.
I notice Dell is offering XP as an additional cost option. You've got to buy vista, but we'll charge you a bit more if you're never going to use it. This says it all, users are prepared to pay more for an old product bundled with something they hate, than they would for a new one. Dell have conned the world into paying £10 more for XP than Vista. What does this say for the brains of your average school leaver?
How can anyone charge £10 extra to use an old operating system, just so you can if you want, install a new operating system you don't want, which is going to be replaced in under a year?
