Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

"...a Mac will also work on my nerves, I'm sure of it. ;) ..."

Especially an iBook. The Mac way of doing things doesn't translate to portables quite as well as the Linux and Windows ways. Don't get me wrong though, its still BETTER then the Windows and Linux ways. ;) (In my most humble opinion of course.)

I do disagree with your comments on bootloaders though... in my experience they have virtually no effect on boot time at all, and as long as you don't use LILO, they are generally trouble free. (God LILO sucks. I deal with alot of different Linux installs regularly on alot of boxes, and LILO fails to boot properly on SEVERAL of them, sometimes quite randomly. GRUB on the other hand works flawlessly first time and every time, every single damn time.)
