In the past, I have always used Windows on my computer, and I've been relatively happy with it. But lately, I've been less and less happy with it.
I think it might be partially because I've gone from mostly using my computer to mostly using my phone for all Internet stuff. So I only use my computer maybe every other day, if that.
Now basically every single time I want to use my computer, it insists that I need to install an update. It doesn't even give me a choice a lot of the time. So basically I have to wait 20 minutes to half an hour to use it for the update to install. The other half of the time, it needs to restart some program or the entire computer. Again, it doesn't give me a choice.
That's why I'm writing this post on my phone right now while I'm waiting for my computer to reboot. Using my computer now requires a tremendous amount of patience on my part.
Next time, I'm going to buy a Mac.
I switched from Windows to Mac in 2000, and never regretted it.ReplyDelete
I love my macbook air.ReplyDelete
Also a Mac convert for about the last 5 years, love it so much!ReplyDelete
I love my Mac but I put Windows on it so it can easily convert for files at work. I don't seem to get updates all that often though.ReplyDelete
You can turn off Windows updates, which is what I usually do, or make it so that you can choose when to install the updates if you want to do so. Just go into Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update > Change settings (for Windows 7 at least).ReplyDelete
I will never ever own a Mac. They suck.ReplyDelete
Even Macs have frequent updates. All operating systems do. Smart phones have updates! They just deploy the updates differently. And turning off updates is a great way to be hacked, because those updates include patches to fix vulnerabilities that have been discovered. The lazy hacker just has to go looking for known vulnerabilities on systems of people who don't update instead of actually finding a new vulnerability to exploit.ReplyDelete
No on/off switch on the iPod drives me insane.ReplyDelete
