I remember the very first computer I ever used. It was a Vic 20, followed by a Commodore 64 and so on and so on. When I got to college I bought my first PC – it had Windows 3.1. Upgraded to ’95, ’98 and XP (never did make the leap to Vista).
You know what else I remember – crashes, viruses, reboots, reformatting, defragging, the blue screen of death, CTRL+ALT+Del, slow boot times, lagging processing, “Not Responding” messages, and plenty more. Oh, those were the days.
What I don’t understand is why it took me so long to listen to the people who talked about how simple and easy and solid Apple computers were. I should have listened. In middle school, I remember the first computer lab had Macintosh’s in it. Guess I’m not that quick after all – took me 20 years to go back to the Mac. And I’ll never go back to PC again. I just don’t understand how people can be happy with a Windows PC.
