My work computer was forced to update to the latest corporate sanctioned version of Windows 10 last night. I have a love-hate relationship with my work computer; it’s alright for the most part but Windows 10 gets in my way a lot when I’m trying to be productive under pressure. In some ways it’s amazing to me that Windows 10 is the mandatory operating system at work, because of the “big three” (Mac, Windows, Linux), I found Windows to be the least productive environment to work in. There’s too much friction in accomplishing tasks and too much attention paid to keeping paradigms established 40 years ago. The whole “shuffle things around on a desktop” is so outdated.
And in their whimsical ways, Windows 10 now let’s you know it’s updating through a modified “blue screen of death”.
It’s a hoot and a half.
