Editorial A couple of days ago, I read an interesting article by Kevin Kostis about how complex computer systems are and how they have a long way to go. I have to partly agree with his assessment, however a lot of folks don't take the time to learn about there own investment.

You're right but to a point. While I agree that computers are like cars in the 20's and 30's, I think computers are far more unreliable.

It's rediculous the amount of CRAP there for a person to sift through in order to get something done. It's to the point now that I don't feel an average person could possibly sit down and enjoy their PC anymore. They're so busy trying to run adaware or spybot and update their virus definitions they get sick of being on the computer or forget why they went to it anyway.

People spend so much time AND money just so they can keep their computer Internet worthy. If a car caused me that much trouble I'd get rid of it and find a new one. But how does someone do that with a computer when the next one will be just as much trouble?
