As many of the readers of this blog know, two years ago I switched from PC to Mac. I bought a Macbook Pro and love it. Since I use a Mac and Mac OS X, I've learned what an easy-to-use, user-friendly, reliable system is. I thought I had all that with Windows... ignorance is bliss...
Here's an example of the things that make Windows such a clear, easy-to-use, user-friendly, reliable platform:
The blue-haired girl got a new antivirus installed in her office PC... I believe it is Virus Scan. Things started going wrong since the new AV was installed. She can't print, and here's the error message from Windows. Do you find anything problematic in the message?
It says: "The printer has not responded yet, but Microsoft Office might continue without information from the printer. Would you like to continue or wait for the printer?" Yes. No.
Hell... Yes or No as options to an "OR" question? Where the hell did these people go to school?
"Would you like coffee or tea?" Yes, No.
I love Microsoft, their clarity, user-friendliness...
And oh, by the way... the freaking HP Laserjet network printer at the office stopped working with my Mac last week... new HP drivers didn't work... reinstalling the printer didn't work... the Software Update from HP didn't work... I just plainly can't print. From the Mac forums, it seems HP is not doing a good job with Mac support... and neither Apple nor HP come up with decent support for the issue. All the PCs in the office print fine. One for Windows.
