As I work online, I obviously us a computer throughout the day (and often all night and weekends too, but that’s another matter). I also have this hate-hate relationship with Microsoft and Windows, as I find it the most infuriating think in my life. I don’t understand why Windows just has to keep annoying me with its constant nagging about stuff I really don’t care about.
I get daily messages telling me that some program I’m not using has stopped working, and shutting down merely prompts to offer feedback to Microsoft (which I have done in my own colourful way) only for the same damn error to keep happening.
I don’t care about the program, sod off!
McAfee is another thorn in my side. Only today I was writing an article when, in mid flow, the focus was taking off word while I was writing a sentence, only for this message box to force itself onto my screen.
I couldn’t give a rat’s arse what it’s about to do, don’t interrupt me when I’m working, only to give me the options of ‘piss me off now’ or ‘piss me off later’.
Where’s the ‘sod off and never bother me again’ button?
Windows is full of this crap and it’s extremely infuriating.
