He's done Windows. Really!

Over the weekend, my IT department (read Hubby) decided it was finally time to update my computer.

I've been running Windows 2000 until a few months ago when he upgraded me to 2003.  I had memory issues (not me, but my PC), so he decided to bite the bullet and get me a new machine with all the bells and whistles.

He/We knew it would be a nightmare for him.  Hubby is a geek, but a Unix/Linux geek, not a Microsoft.  He doesn't do Windows ( really he doesn't!). He kinda has to when I'm involved, since I don't do Linux.

Last night I had to scan some documents and figuring it out with my new tool - Office 2010/Windows 7 (thanks flurrious for pointing how little I do know about this!) is somewhat different than what I'm used to - has been challenging. When things don't work the way they used to I will ask Hubby (that is after I've tried many different options, of course!) and depending on his mood and answer I will do my best to just shut up and try to remain calm.  It doesn't always work.

Unlike many people, I don't mind change.  Change is good.  Really.  It's all part of the process, I get it.  Now if you'll excuse me, I have some file sorting to do...

Windows 2000! That's ... old. Of course, I'm running XP, so I can't really point fingers.

They must be named differently north of the border though because there is no Windows 2010 here. I don't know if that's the same as Windows 7 or Windows Vista. Actually, Vista and 7 might be the same thing. I think the way they do it is that only every other version is any good, which means that when you buy your computer you have a 50% chance that you'll need to upgrade. So it was ME bad, XP good, Mojave bad, 7 good. Microsoft is diabolical.

flurrious: There's no name difference, only stupid user, like me! I've corrected my post - thanks for pointing it out.
