  1. Just mulling over and chuckling at the differences between Windows and Linux and other OSes, and came up with this. I have one at hand, and though I'd share it.

    Anyone's guess who that is aimed at. :p

    So, what's your thought?

    Windows! And a friend of mine who builds and repairs PCs says he's seen people click "Yes..." to that offer.

    I've clicked it before just so I could punch it in the face if it was able to look it up ;)

    Ha-ha! :D
    Have any experiences to share about which OS you think is the stupidest and why?

    Windows... It's the only OS I've used that has ever offered to check online for the solution to a connection problem, just like the picture suggests.

    OSX is second, always insisting I reopen all my programs upon startup (up until the most recent update, of course).

    Hmm gonna say windows 7 is stupid because microsoft would and will not let me redownload windows 7! If I knew that I would have NEVER bought a digital copy or I would have backed it up like 3 times instead of just on my now stolen USB flash drive.:mad:

    Try these links:
    These are download links for Windows install media not Windows activation keys, you must supply your own key for Windows to activate.

    That's actually where I downloaded Windows 7 from the other day and got the missing drivers error on install with several dvd burns and a usb flash drive attempts. I have a legit product key. Maybe I had a bad download.
