So much nothing.

Let's analyze these one at ta time.

1> Screen corner controls tend to piss me off, because much like 'sticky-keys' they always trip when I DON'T WANT THEM. First damned thing I turn off in any OS that supports it.

2> This one has lots of words but doesn't actually SAY anything.

3> 4> 5> wow, was anyone able to make any sense at all of what is said in these? Gibberish ranting about so much nothing.

6> Well, I hate spatial navigation too (I'm a tree type of guy... It's laid out like a tree, show me a damned TREE!)

7> Piss poor mix of George Carlin and Bill Engvall... again meaningless

8> Poor baby... Not sure what he's arguing for but certainly seems worked up over nothing.

But again, no two people ever see eye to eye on anything...
