It is time to let this one go. It just doesn’t happen anymore. Honestly since Windows XP came out in 2001 I have managed to incur the dread BSOD maybe 4 times. Of these 4 occurrences I would say I have gotten a BSOD once if at all after Windows XP Service Pack 2 came out. Realize I am not saying it doesn’t still occur at all, but it is so rare now, and when it does occur you have to either be doing something truly off the wall or have a machine that has fallen into a seriously poor state of repair.
I am not just a regular schmo checking email and surfing a few websites. I maintain many Windows PC’s, Windows Servers, Linux Servers, and even a couple of Macs. I do check email and surf the web obviously, but I also code with ASP, .Net, Java, WebObjects, SQL, etc… I work on Windows XP machines all day long and then come home and use them as well as my new Macbook Pro. I have been using Windows since Windows 3.1 and I have to say it is only getting better. Of course there are things I hate about the OS, such as the new DRM changes Microsoft has put in Vista.
Enough already! I am not trying to get into a holy war.
As I have said before, I am not a fan boy of one technology. I choose the best of everything and make every attempt to mash it all up. I suggest more people stop playing politics with their choices and start making informed decisions for the need.
Sorry for the rant…
