LiveMusic Posted May 10, 2004 Share Posted May 10, 2004 I am basing this on me and three close friends. Every single one of us, our computing (PC) has actually been a disaster. I have been computing heavily for exactly 20 years. My original IBM PC (turned it into an XT) was very reliable with no problems for many years. My AT clone was too. Once past that, it started getting dicey. Since internet age, I've had one computer that did me well. A NEC laptop. Which finally totally died after three years use. Since then, it has been chaos. Same for all of my three friends. I am no expert but if they didn't have me, they would be doomed. It's been a little bit of everything... hardware, OS, software, viruses, spyware. Now, viruses and spyware are wreaking havoc. Sometimes, it takes a day or day and a half to fix. There is no way they could afford to pay someone to fix this. I mean, at service charge rates, you could just throw it away and buy a new one. So, I am asking you... are other people out there having lots of trouble? I cannot imagine how non-tech savvy people are dealing with this. Among us four people, as I look back, it's been so effed up, I'm thinking now maybe it's not worth it. Maybe I should go to Mac. I don't know, maybe Linux. I just can't imagine how the average person is dealing with this stuff. Comments appreciated.
