The amount of crap computer users have to put up with is incredible. Yesterday my desktop died, and so I went ahead and got a brand new Windows 8 laptop. Its always been my feeling that as years go on, user experience has been going down for people who use a computer and the Internet, because of decisions all companies make that are clearly anti-user, either because they think they know best, or in many cases, for financial gains. But from spending all night reinstalling everything and customizing the laptop, I realized just how bad it has become.
