Generally I’ve had a love/hate relationship with Windows, but I’m stuck with it. The programs I need don’t get along with any variety of Linux I’ve tried, and the only way I’ll go Mac is if someone pays.

But, with Windows 8.1, I have more of a loath/rage thing going.

This morning I got blue screened again. It wouldn’t be quite as bad if the Wind blue screens weren’t so “friendly” (vague). The reasons are almost random and looking them up has been a waste of time.

This time I ended up with Windows becoming unusable. And my usual luck with backups holds true. I’m  just lucky that I keep multiple copies of my data.

So, I’m happily going back to Windows 7. Which is going to take a while.
