Windows 2000 ... *sigh* [Nov. 29th, 2000|11:49 am]

It seems that the more I use Windows 2000, the more I hate it. Same with anything, actually.... the more I learn about Linux, Perl, web programming, MySQL ... hate them all. Come to think of it, there's very few implementations of anything that I really like.

Anyway, today's win2k silliness: I'm on a machine at school right now, a P3-766 or something, with 256 MB of ram... normally these machines fly, almost as fast as my win2k machine at home. Right now it's chugging along slower than a 486 with 16 mb of ram running win98. My keystrokes are delayed by a couple seconds as I type this. I check task manager and winlogon.exe is taking 99% CPU. I can't kill it because "This is a critical system process. Task Manager cannot end this process." Stupid Windows.

When will Microsoft make a reliable operating system?

i know. just a little attempt at humor. i am pretty sick of rebooting my home computers several times a day.i have heard good thinks about linux, but i don't know enough to try that at home yet. it seems microsoft trys to blame other software writers for writing poor code and that is why it doesn't work. but i have just as many if not more problems with office, etc. also many of the programs written were possibly written with microsoft's programming/development software. so they can't really blame others before they get their act together.

i am just trying to bring some humor to our unfortunate situation. believe me... i agree with you on this. you seem to be doing a pretty darn good job with the tools you were given. good work and thanks.
