"Cavemen (XP users) need to eventually upgrade their stone computers"
So when Windows 7 comes out, will the Vista users become neanderthals or would it be cromagnam? I sucked in science.
I'm just happy WC supports both. They could probably svae a lot of time and money by cutting some XP stuff out.
As far as Stardock 'keeping up', take a look around. I only got Vista a few months ago and I don't forsee being able to jump to W7 when it comes out for quite a while. I think Stardock does an excellent job of not just keeping up with what changes quicker than you can update your newsfeed, but at getting us info and previews on the changes in the OS's and their own software.
Once in a while, I think or imagine I have a handle on all the griping and whining. You have a generation of folks who get comfortable aren't entirely open to change. They (I, we) are sometimes dragged reluctantly, kicking, screaming, softly sobbing...but we adapt, accept, adjust, and learn to like it or love it. A few hate it, but go with the flow. Then, there is the other generation. A generation unfamiliar with a world void of remote controls, 257 channels, cell phones, texting, vinyl discs, etc. They are used to getting what they want, now. Instant gratification. If it breaks, buy a new one. (yes, I believe we now live in a disposable world) They either have no concept of what it takes for folks to keep up or don't care beacuse they bellyache as soon as they feel they or whatever it is they feel they want or need at that moment hsa lapsed and inconvenienced them because it has not kept up with whatever they use to set the bar.
When I try to resolve this in my own mind, I come up with this. Get over it. Change is inevitable. I think the only thing that hasn't changed in the last 50 years is toilet paper. Change either comes to fast or to slow. But it always comes. Enjoy it. Revel in it. Explore it. Even if it is change you don't care for, and you have to turn somewhwre else to find what you want, that in itself is an adventure. Then, while going over all this in my warper head, I always here Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. "Anything different is good."
