It’s been a fun week full of discoveries and reboots.
If you’ve been following my blogs, you’ll know that I have recently switched from OS X to Microsoft Windows 7 for my home computer. Let me tell you what is wrong with Windows.
You see that screenshot above? All I did was plug my Logitech mouse reciever out of one USB port and into another one right next to it. It took Windows almost 2 minutes and 30 seconds to re-install drivers of the same device on the same USB controller and during that time, my rodent was inaccessible. That same procedure on a Mac takes less than a couple of seconds.
Here is another one for you. This one isn’t from my PC but a Samsung notebook that I am currently reviewing.
Seriously? Is one week a bit too much for Windows to handle without going for a reboot? Samsung certainly thinks so. I’ll wait to form my opinion after using my PC for a month or so because during my first week, I’ve been rebooting multiple times every day installing drivers and updating Windows.
Fun aside, I’m actually enjoying my move back to Windows. Or maybe it’s the tri-monitor setup that I am still awed with. I have my browser in the middle monitor with my emails and tweets on the left monitor and my widgets and other non-essentials on the right. It is simply awesome to have all that information to look at without having to switch windows. Can’t wait to play WoW on it.
