Windows "Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. It's always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become." Probably the biggest reason to go Mac or Linux. Such a shame Microsoft found it more important to pressure OEMs into silly Secure Boot nonsense instead of doing something about the anti-user crapware disaster. Goes to show who Microsoft cares about. Hint: it ain't you.

It is a good point that crapware is an OEM issue and not a MS issue. Thom bought a windows 8? Why didn't you get a windows 7?

Thom didn't buy a Windows 8 laptop (yet), the person who wrote the article he linked bought it.

I get your confusion though; I've wondered for a long time why the quoted article text isn't indented (like Slashdot) or at least italicized so we don't get the impression that the entire summary is Thom's words.
