    Ok but that is your personal opinion ...

    what is not a personal opinion is what a human eye can perceive well or not.

    Although perception is indeed different from person to person, there are
    some basic things that have been confirmed, that form a general "rule" on
    how humans perceive colors shapes and movement.

    There are also optical illusions, that are due to how the brain itself
    works...

    So although what you are trying to say is if something is beautiful or not,
    that has nothing to do with ergonomics. In my opinion ergonomics are the
    basis, and then looks and eyecandy must plus that and not get in the way.

    You may say ok switch to classic... but I have to repeat again, its not me
    who Im thinking about.. but the person who doesn't know much about computers
    for example an elderly person who doesn't have good eyesight and most
    certainly not know how to change a theme.

    About Windows ME: I used it on 4 computers (2 still serve as backups) and
    there's nothing wrong with it! People don't realize that Windows OSes are
    always evolving, so naturally ME wasn't as good as XP, but a LOT better than
    Win95.

    I just don't get the ME bashing. When people say it sucked, they never give
    specifics.

    Yes, we know your take on Vista. Keep ramming it down our throats every few
    days because as we get older we tend to forget that Tiberius doesn't like
    Vista. When I get old and contract Alzheimer's, your constant reminders
    will help me relalize that you don't like Vista. Vista is stupid, people
    who use Vista are stupid. Isn't that what you preach?

    I don't remember you saying this yesterday, but I'll go look.

    Now put a reminder in your Ubuntu calendar to notify us again in 3-4 days
    that Vista sucks.

    Tibby, you don't seem to have grasped the concept of the all-important
    utility curve...

    Bleeding-edge, Mainstream, Late-adotpters... it's a bell-curve.

    I would say that the OEM community jumped on the bleeding-edge too soon with
    Vista. But that is NOT MS's fault.

    Cease and desist until you can show some understanding of utility and open
    market economics.

    Otherwise, you are a plonker.

    Tibby - how long have you used computers?

    I'm at (looks at watch) 29 years.

    I still have ME on several systems as the only OS and have it on a few
    others as dual boot.
    I actually think it's OK, and personally never had any major issues with it.
    But I don't visit torrent or porno sites...

    Actually, one of the first things I was ever taught about computers is that
    they lie to you (i.e badly programmed error messages, never trust them ;-)

    They still have vacuum tubes in the '70's?
    I worked on equipment from TI in the early '60's and it was all
    transistorized except for one lonely vt.
    I though is was the last tube ever made. :-D

    He was wrong about ME also, he says:

    "Windows ME is the single worst operating system because:"
    "It was slow"
    "It constantly crashed"
    "Applications refused to work"

    The above are true only for people who were as clueless as Chris
    appears to be. I ran ME and it wasn't any slower than Win98, it NEVER
    crashed, not one single time and ALL my applications worked w/o
    problems.

    I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Vista wouldn't work for him,
    either. ;-)

    I used a tube as my final drive for my ham radio transmitter into the late
    70's.
    They were tougher to find, but still available...even though by special
    order.
