I’m stuck with Windows 7 at work, and i have a brief encounter with the later iterations and I can say I 8 them very much.
Honestly, Ubuntu is not the perfection nor an all-around solution (still some quirks to fix before considering taking over the consumer market) but it’s honestly not that bad.
I’m rediscovering OS X since @descampsdavid gave me a Mac Mini.
Anyway, for 95 % of applications, all computers are good enough, including these cheap ChromeOS übernetbooks that cost the price of a meal in a good restaurant.

One of the things I really, really love in a multitasking environment, say like Windows OS, is the incapacity of the thing you’re currently working on to stay on top of the priority list when in competition with newly opened applications.

Fucking attention whores.

Computers should be attentive, docile, benevolent, stupid, effective slaves. They’re now unleashed bouncing overweight kids screaming on top of their lungs while on sugar rush.

Les programmeurs (1980), a geeky song about computer programmers by Tri Yann, the oldest french band still touring (celtic-folk/prog-rock).

Programmers are everyday celebrating (bis)

On monday they’re going to the girls

Let’s play the other side of the tape

Oh gué lon la

Let’s play the other side of the tape

Sunny weather is coming back

On monday they’re going to the girls (bis)

And on tuesday they’re changing the floppy disk

chorus

On tuesday they’re changing the floppy disk (bis)

On wednesday they’re packing an octet

chorus

On wednesday they’re packing an octet (bis)

And on thursday they’re on the verge of depression

chorus

And on thursday they’re on the verge of depression (bis)

On friday they’re going to the bar

chorus

On friday they’re going to the bar(bis)

On satursday the work is not done

chorus

On satursday the work is not done

Look at them : they’re partying

chorus

It could explain the french computer industry failure.
