Why does Windows Vista hide everything? Where the hell did it put Ubuntu when I installed it as a service running within Windows?
Why the hell does it take about 900 key strokes to install anything because of stupid security access messages?
Why did my screen go blank and I had to reboot? Why are trackpads so shit?
Why are all mail servers different with their incomprehensible authentication options and their SSL messages that would baffle Stephen Hawking?
Why can’t I get all my emails from Eudora on my old machine, import them into a mail client on Vista, that allows me to sending emails from multiple personalities (so emails *to* this domain go out from this domain, while emails to my gmail account go out as that)? Does such a thing exist? Why can’t I find it?
Why have I spent a day doing nothing except wrestle with a new laptop that was supposed to save me time?
Why does Windows Vista Home Premium (hah!!) randomly forget that my HP C5180 printer is installed on the network, whereas the creaky five year old Windows XP machine doesn’t? Like I really want to reinstall the fucking printer drivers every time I print an email.
Why won’t things JUST FUCKING WORK??????
Thanks. I wish I could say I feel better for that.
