Go Microsoft!

Dina was complaining that she couldn't insert a USB mouse into her laptop and have it work automatically.

"That's bullshit," I said. USB defines special classes for devices, mice included, and they just work everywhere. Even on Linux!

But no:

Apparently Microsoft's operating system division doesn't trust the Microsoft mouse division.

What... the... fuck?

Not to mention that Dina's harddrive has been grinding for the past 2 days or so. At first I thought it was a scheduled task, defragging or something, but it won't stop.

Time to switch her to Linux? :P
