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.

Ex-Amiga user?

Hey Thom something just occurred to me: were you an Amiga-user or similar home computer (Atari ST, early Mac) user in the past? Because then I could see where the annoyances are coming from. I know I've had my doubts on the difference in responsiveness and boot time between PC's (any OS really) and home computers. How much did we really gain in the last years, speed-wise? The faster a system, the less efficient it runs, apparently.
