Was Bill Gates in Slytherin?
If you were ever thinking of changing over to Linux, now might be the time to do it. Apparently Microsoft's new update to verify the legitimacy of your OS is apparently a Trojan Horse. It basically changes your system from passive support to active. MS can shut you down at will. Now, I've noticed this happening anyway when MS has a "security" upgrade. They shut my system down. No matter what I have going on. Even with their own software. It has infuriated me of course. I usually lose something I considered valuable. Maybe my computer and I are already in deep doo-doo. I don't know.
Have I ever told you, I also hate their software? Looks great. Less useful. Lots of crashes. Bulimious bloatware. I've also got issues with AOL for the same sort of meddling, and same sort of crashing.
Why do I have the feeling that every upgrade is roughly equivalent to a home invasion? Are my gestalt enemy sensors going hypercritical on me? [ed.: He wants to know if you think he's paranoid.]
