Another Reason I Hate Windows

How many updates can a person stand?

I’m off the Internet grid these days. Indeed, every single time I post to my blog, I’m doing so by connecting my MacBook Pro to the Internet through my Treo 700p’s Dial-Up Networking (DUN) feature.

This is not a fast connection. In fact, it can take over an hour to download a 30 MB file. When I need to do a real update, I have to find an Internet cafe with a fast connection. Or sit in my truck in front of a neighborhood home and use its connection.

So imagine my annoyance when Windows Vista on my Dell laptop popped up with this message today:

Windows Updates

Are they kidding?

I just updated three days ago when I was fortunate enough to pick up the neighborhood connection in my trailer. Yet Microsoft has 67.1 MB more of “important” updates for me. That doesn’t count the 43 “optional” updates or the 2 “extras.”

No wonder the Internet connection at the local library is so slow. The five or six Windows PCs at the workstations there are probably spending all day every day downloading updates.

One thought on “Another Reason I Hate Windows

  1. Years ago I occasionally poked my surfing-nose into Linux forums once every few months, to read a little… And every month I’d get a few Linux Forum-update messages in my inbox.. but back then Linux was horribly complicated and scary… Most of the Linux forum threads were full of real scary-stuff, about the horrid problems getting things to work at all, especially in that “fedora monster”.. so I just avoided it… Changing to Linux gave me the impression that I’d be putting myself into a meat grinder if I changed to Linux…

    But a month ago, my hd running W2K got hit just too hard… The OS was hack-destroyed three-times in a week.. For several years, when I wrote posts that exposed the worst evils in this Culture, my posts, browsers, and/or the OS would suddenly crash a second or two after completing an extremely controversial statement.. even on a fresh W2K install… I tried literally all of the free AVS’s and firewalls, and security softwares, and got me a wired-router, and bought a major FW and AVS, and still the hack-buggers got right through that stuff like it wasn’t even there… I figured it was America Intel boys just “having some fun with a peasant”… I just couldn’t find who was doing it.. though I came very close, but they quickly jumped a step ahead… I really tried to determine who was terrorizing me, so I published some real nasty-stuff, which brought the three little-demons out of their closets.. the big guns… “Yuk!”..

    Enough was enough! so last month I decided to Hell with Windows, and surfed Linux, and bumped into Ubuntu, and clicked-up the download image for Ubuntu-7… But the moment the download began, the OS Crashed Hard…

    I went back to the download, and again the OS crashed…

    Four times in a row the OS crashed at the start of the Ubuntu download.. So I removed the hd, and installed one of the other hd’s from the drawer full of clean-load hd’s, and got the image download, made the CD, rebooted, It installed, and the dern thing kept on updating, and updating, and updating… “WhooH!”..

    And Hey! it was 80% the same as W2K… “Oh Joy!”.. There wasn’t any “scary” in it.. an no hellish advertising, and no insane goofy logos, and no thht boot-splash, and no microsoft letters splattered all over the bludy place… is when I realized that it was the Windows forums that claimed Linux was “a scary bad thing”…

    Windows seems like it’s the leader in the religion-wars, each one claiming they own the throne, but each one never leaving the muck in the bottom of the barrel.. like the last bait-worm, in the bottom of the bait-can, screaming that it is god, and begging for a little moisture, and just a little shade from the hot sun, from the deaf fisherman…

    The PC hasn’t crashed since… I haven’t had a single post, in progress, crash, even when it got to expose the nastiest crap happening in this crazy dying slavery-based culture… But a tiny thing happened that I didn’t like, in a combo Linux/Windows link.. so I won’t smurf with my main Ubuntu hd anymore… I’ll insert the old 40-gig hd into the box for . danger-zones, so if it gets messed with I won’t suffer the grief of having to reinstall the 80-gigger anymore, because I don’t like having snoops in my tower, reading over my shoulder, and controlling my PC.. “demons in my computer-room”… It makes me feel exposed, molested, assaulted, scathed, keel-hauled, lashed, attacked, mugged, raped, bitten, stabbed, stung…

    Getting out of Windows was, for me, like escaping hell itself…

    Windows was hell, trying to get drivers, and having to pay blood for every new good software.. and if I installed Windows with a copy of the install CD, and went into a microsoft website, suddenly the OS got destroyed… Over 30-times, I repaired a client’s Windows box, with their own registered Windows install CD, and went into a microsoft website, and suddenly the OS got destroyed.. hours of work instantly destroyed, because they probably black-listed my IP…

    I’m through with microsoft!.. I predict that the big-bully goes bankrupt 14.5 years from now, because it has bullied mankind so hard and long for money, Money, MONEY…

    Linux will rip Window’s claws from humanity, and will dominate the computer OS scene forever.. because Linux is based upon honesty, reality, and a brotherhood of mankind, even though a few Windows creeps are trying to harm Linux, pretending to be Linux people, but just vile-demons hiding behind a Linux mask, to prey off of the unwary and the meek… It’s all they know… But Linux still stands miles tall beyond Windows, in honesty, dignity, respect, love, and reality, and Linux doesn’t look like someone insane wrote it…

    Windows OS is like the great Kraken taking down a ship.. but Linux is based upon good, which tastes bad to Krakens… There’s no sweet-milk money-nipples dangling from Linux ship for the Kraken to suckle upon… It seem Windows is based upon squeezing money out of the masses, and squeezing, and squeezing, and skaweezing, till they are skaweezing blood, and then they’ll skaweeze that little more, with a straw into your soul…

    I got Ubuntu working, then packaged-up all the Windows CD’s into an airtight double sealed plastic-container, and placed it in the shed between the bag of garden fertilizer and the bag of sheep manure.. Microsoft Window’s new home…

    When I first installed my new KDS flat-screen, I noticed something was missing… Then Oops! I set the screen-def to high as it gets, and lost the desktop, and had to reinstall the CRT screen to reset it.. not knowing what else to do.. then I reinstalled the flat screen, and realized the thing that was missing, was that the new screen wasn’t trying to kill me with high level ems… It was like a breath of Fresh, like gaining a freedom from evil… Then I installed Ubuntu, and all the pain of computering just fell-off and away… It was like I had pulled a great vile demon-beast from off my back, pulled its claws out of my flesh, and released its byte to my throat’s jugular, and tossed it into the shed, and gave the blood-sucking money-sucking vile little beast a new home between the fertilizer bag and the sheep manure bag…

    If I had-have keyed this post in a Windows OS, it would have been crashed in the start of the third para.. Guaranteed!..

    I am still amazed and relieved that this post didn’t get crashed yet… But still save every minute, habitually… I guess I’m still a little “shell-shocked” from the vile Windows WW3 scene…

    I’m sure I’ll heal it out in time, now that I can switch-on the computer-desk and boot the tower, without sustaining that little cold-chill and ugly-shudder…

    Announcing a brand new Windows operating system.. and it’s totally Free!..

    It’ll run on a 6-gig hd… (the little Xubuntu will run on a much smaller hd, but it doesn’t have as many features as Ubuntu has)

    You will be absolutely amazed at how much you can do with this new system, that you couldn’t do with XP and Vista… And it’s so simple too…

    Just download from: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

    (click the area below the location box).

    Download it to desktop…

    After it’s finished, remove all your treasures, including bookmarks and favorites, from the PC, onto CD or flash drive…

    Put a CDR CD int the slot, not a RW, and make an image CD of the download…

    Reboot the PC with CD in the slot, and follow the instructions…

    Choose “guided partition”… Answer a few questions.. and let it do its thing…

    In about 40-minutes it will be ready to reboot…

    Then it will update itself with 260 updates…

    It’s easier to use than XP and Vista were… And it does a lot more than XP and Vista ever could.. and it’s free…

    It isn’t gaudy, nor cluttered, nor is there any advertising in it… And you can customize it beyond belief… And it doesn’t get hit by hackers like W98, W2K, XP, and Vista do… It doesn’t need to be defragged… It doesn’t need registry cleaners… It doesn’t lock-up… It’s just like running XP and Vista, but without all the crap… And you don’t need any key codes… And there are thousands of free softwares for it.. and you don’t need to go onto the Internet searching for new softwares.. You just tell it’s Add/Remove window to search for the software you want, and it finds it, and installs it, from honest trusted places, all for free…

    If you have an old Windows 98 install CD, It might be a good plan to format your hd with the W98 CD before you do anything else… And to be doubly sure, it might be a good plan to pull the battery for about ten-minutes before you fdisk-format with W98 CD, but it’s not necessary.. but sometimes XP & Vista refuse you to install anything new…

    The W98 CD fdisk formatting eliminates that problem by totally cleaning-out all that Windows security EULA crap…

    If you’ve got a spare hd.. change it for the one that’s in your PC, and start from the top of this page…

    You will be bouncing in your chair, screaming that this is exactly what you’ve been looking for…

    And it’s without all the Window’s bullshit… It’s the difference between hell and heaven…

    It’s like releasing yourself from the corporate world’s money-eating claws…
