    I like 10.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Part of my problem might be that I just don't have the time or patience to learn how to do things with 8 that I got so I could do without thinking on 7.

    Little things like saving a link to a website or document onto my desktop. With 8, I don't really even seem to have a desktop anymore - just a screen with big colored blocks on it that I mostly don't need and ignore. With 7, I just right clicked and selected "Save shortcut to desktop", or something like that, and it did it. I have no idea how to do something like that with 8.

    That's how technology works.

    Re-learning the same basic $#@! you knew on the old product but have to buy the new product to keep doing it.

    Windows 10 sucks. I've thus far avoided every attempt of Microsoft's to force me to use 10.
    "We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality, but by the higher duty I owe to myself."

    I have always believed that it should be the computers that learn our language, instead of the reverse having to happen. Doing something on a computer should just be a matter of telling the damned thing in simple English what to do...and there should be a special "You're being an idiot" key, that you use to get your computer to get it's s**t together and focus on what you're telling it.

    Overengineering.

    Same can be said about cars, or almost anything else.

    I logged onto my home computer one morning, and it was in the middle of installing Windows 10. I swear to God, it apparently just decided that it was going to use 10 without any input from me. I got it to stop - after selecting "Yes, I'm sure" about a million times - and re-install 8, but for several months after that it ran so slowly it was unusable...until I thought to uninstall and reinstall my security software, and then it was okay again.
