I have a dream.
I dream I can turn my computer on and not have to wait 15min for useable control to be returned to me, the user.
Gone are the days when I could 'just' check for an email or 'just' google something or 'just' look up that phone number.
is a relative term now. It means 'just' wait for that scan to finish, 'just' wait for that update to finish, 'just' wait for two copies of scanningprocess to return control of critical resources back to me.. simple things like my processor and my RAM....
I want my read/write indicator to flash, or better still to be off... not blazing, full on, all the time.
I want my computer back
I'm not an *****, I have a university degree. I simply do not understand firewall and antivirus issues. So, I'm at the mercy of vendors and to a certain degree to their marketing. But I do homework, I check feedback, I ask around, I choose reliable vendors. I still lose control of my computer.
I want my computer back.
I want my computer to serve me, to do what I want it to do to make my life simpler. I do not want to serve my computer.
