After spending hours trying to get my laptop working, with all the cryptic error messages that don't help at all.


Yes Gates, you're now some wonderful philanthropist dishing out some of the billions you made from screwing computer users over decades with your anti-competitive monopolies.


Thanks a bunch.

You have a choice. Go buy a Mac, or install linux, and see if your problems magically disappear.

No point in whinging about someone who hasn’t worked on Windows in years... and you probably shouldn’t be making “violent threats” either- no doubt against the FUGs here

Enjoy running linux mint on my PC and have done for years. Glad I ditched windows years ago.

Get off that high horse of yours.

 

Just because Gates and Microsoft stink doesn't mean I can afford to buy a Mac or know anything about how to make Linux work.

Surely Windows is not rocket science for an UberGeek?

So what you're saying is Microsoft built an extremely easy to use operating system that has been adopted by billions of people around the world?
