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.

The concept is good i can not disagree with that, but just for a fraction of a second think about viruses or "malicious" software.
Some time ago some manufacturers introduced the feature of flasing the BIOS and it wasnt long before a virus could wipe your BIOS and let you with a bunch of useless electronic equipment.... (Ofcourse since then BIOS flashing has improved a lot) But the question remains....How can the BIOS know that the software that requests a change in its "Boot Table" is indeed an "innocent" OS and not an "innocent" Virus?
