Microsoft stock down 11% almost overnight

It is a shame for the good people that have their money tied up in Microsoft stock, but I, like many others, have been complaining for countless years, that Microsoft does not have a clue what people really want in software. They don’t seem to grasp the idea that people would like reliable software as the first priority. Of course, perhaps they are quite aware of that, but have no idea how to generate reliable software.

I suppose that they assume that all of those people that want reliability, already have Macs.

I’m pretty sure that I have far more trouble with computers that anyone else that I know. I would love for someone to explain to me what I’m doing wrong. But, since that does not seem to be forthcoming, I bungle along, getting more gray hair every day.

Well, actually, probably getting less hair of any color, every day, because I keep tearing at it.

I was having so many mystery problems in my main computer, running Win 7 pro, that I reloaded a backup. But, that had problems, and so I loaded an earlier backup. But, that had problems.

So, I installed Windows 8 Pro. The latest and greatest from Microsoft, right?

I find it to be really, really stupid. One of the things that I like to do. I would almost say that I must be able to do, is to have several windows, open and visible, on the screen at the same time, and to be able to move back and forth easily from one to another. But, it seems that that is impossible with Windows 8. Navigation is very difficult.

Thanks for letting me whine. I will beat my head against the wall for another couple of days, and then I will load ‘Classic Shell.’ This is some third-party software that gets Windows 8, to have the same appearance and functionality as Windows 7. But, I really, truly, wanted Windows 8 to work, without needing that.

Then, why change away from Windows 7 you ask? Because I am told that Windows 8 operates much more efficiently. That is, it uses fewer resources and the same computer runs faster when using Windows 8 plus the Classic Shell, than when running Windows 7.

Some say, including me, that I’m having a lot of problems, but I try hard to consider them ‘learning experiences.’ Although, I do admit that I whine a lot about my learning experiences.

Time to beat my head against the wall some more,

Dave
