Ditch Windows NOW!

How much time have you spent upgrading to Windows 10?

How much time have you spent watching the progress bar on Windows Update?

Really? Do you love watching the progress bar that much?

Don’t just accept that crap.

Ditch Windows!

This morning I have spent over 2 hours trying to upgrade to Windows 10. That’s 2 hours of my life that I won’t get back. A pointless waste of time.

And why? Who knows? (it might be because I’m an idiot)

I used to just accept it as a fact that I would have to figure out how to upgrade stuff. But isn’t that what Microsoft should be doing? I’m just a pleb with a computer. Perhaps it’s my geeky tendencies, but no more.

No more Windows for me!

I’ve been using a Chromebook since the start of 2015 and love it to bits. It cost next to nothing (NT$10,500 or about US$350), does what I want it to do and does it well.

How long have I spent looking at the progress bar in Chrome OS?

None, zip, zilch.

When there’s an update, it downloads in the background a small little icon appears in the bottom indicating that a restart is needed. Bliss.

This tendency to accept crap from software also applied when I used Ubuntu. Yay, it’s free, but I spent hours figuring out bugs and compatibility issues. Hours that I should have spent doing something useful. (NOTE to self: stop undervaluing your time)

Perhaps Apple fans have known this for years (I have no idea, but it sure looks that way), but now non-Apple chaps can have the same.

Get a Chromebook. You’ll never look back.
