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.

RE: BeOS Boot Time Illusion

It's been a while since I used BeOS, but I have used it. It was a P166 with TNT2 video in 1998. So, I may be misremembering.

But, the way I remember it, I couldn't use the net for 10-20 seconds after the desktop came up. So _something_, maybe DHCP, was still running in the background.
