I have a new work laptop.
I have a smart phone Droid. But it's nothing like this Windows 8 stuff. I watched My Mann frustrated and cursing at the computer screen when he was learning Windows 8 on his new computer at Christmas.
I secretly laughed behind his back. Thinking "Oh, Yeah." "I'm so lucky to have my personal laptop using the old operating system." "Oh, Yeah, I don't have to deal with that nonsense."
Then it happened. My boss announced that I would finally have a work computer. As much as I thought a new computer would be good to have for just work I dreaded what that would mean. I begged him to special order one with the old Windows 7 system. He didn't listen to that request.
I/ve been using it for about a week now and at first I felt so stupid and yelled at the computer screen more than once. Glad My Mann wasn't around to see me. He would probably have no qualms about hiding his laughter.
I think the only saving grace is that my boss sprang for the touch screen on the new work computer.
Except for the windows that all of a sudden show up while you're trying to do some work near the edge of the screen. I think they even show up when it thinks your thinking about doing something kind of near the edge.
I don't think I'd like turning on the computer if it didn't have the picture I set for my opening screen.
Have you had to learn something new that's been frustrating?
