Defenestration

After a barrage of updates on May 12, my Windows Update keeps checking for updates endlessly but never finds one. I’ve scoured the Internet and applied literally dozens of of remedies, all to no avail. I’ve restored my systems to before May 12. Nope.

This week’s “emergency security update” was the last straw. Apparently nothing can be done without an operational Windows Update. I’ve spent much of the last two days working on this and now I’m asking why.

My Chromebook never needs to do any of this, starts up and shuts down in seconds, and works faster than my more powerful desktop.

So, dear readers, I ask if any of you have made the switch from Windows to Chrome on your desktop PC, and how did it work out? What was the biggest limitation? What aspects of Windows did you miss and what workarounds were necessary?

If all else fails, let’s demand that we keep Bill Gates away from Common Core until he can come up with a version of Windows that doesn’t induce blind rage.

    Ah, what a wonderful idea. It will keep Gates busy for at least 4 years as Microsoft keeps releasing crap since Windows 8 in 2011 (or, truly, since Vista in 2006 with a short hiatus for Windows 7 in between).

    Unfortunately for us all, his Common Core looks no better.
