I’d been a confirmed Mac user for many years (not the least of which because the company I worked at for 10+ years used them) and when my Mac Book (using OS X 4.9) died a couple years ago, I wasn’t happy (I expressed that here) at having to — in my words — “settle” for a Windows computer.
Well, I’m back at that company (and glad about it) but they’re still Mac based and using one with Mountain Lion has left me singularly unimpressed. Apple removed much of the customization that was previously possible. And, it’s kind of buggy.
So, with an apology to AZRon, I have to admit that I now prefer Windows 7. I’m not crazy about Windows Explorer — it still lacks many ease of use features of OS X’s Finder — but overall I’m finding Windows (believe it or not) a bit more user friendly these days.
Incidentally, I did take the advice of many of you and switched to AVAST anti-virus. It’s definitely better and faster than Norton.
I have one trepidation: From what I’ve read, Windows 8 is designed for the more mobile/touch screen users and I’m a confirmed touch typist and hot-keys user.
Hopefully MS will continue to support Windows 7 for many years to come.
