        Those are the most interesting dialogs I found in Windows 10, 11 or Office 365.
        This is my action to balance the power of universe 🙂 🙂 Link to the fun stuff below.

        Office 365 ugly dialogs: About updates dialog and two other “unknown interface” dialogs. One application, three or more kinds of dialogs? Thats ugly.

        Windows 11 “folder options” dialog disrespecting user color scheme. Did I saw this dialog in W95? I think I did. I could add more ancient dialogs, they are hidden all over the Windows.

        Whats your experience, did you find some hidden ancient parts of the system, that Microsoft is trying to sell as the cutting edge of technology?

        Thanks, Doriel.

        And … “The Onion” does it again! Great video, “Onion”!

        The lesson: This is what happens to people who do not do some research on the available personal computers before going to buy one that satisfies the buyer’s needs. A well-informed buyer is not going to be convinced by the fast patter of a salesman+scam artist.

          Sometimes its hard to tell “No” to salesman, they will try to sell you everything 🙂 Onion news are very funny and I like that. After few years, that I watched Oninon movie, I noticed, that they have also youtube channel.

          The thing is, that most people are “technical illiterates” and its easy to convince them into buying new stuff they dont need.

        Doriel: “The thing is, that most people are “technical illiterates” and its easy to convince them into buying new stuff they dont need.

        The funny thing (but not “funny ha, ha”) is that people with a computer and Internet access, if they know just a tiny bit about how to google for information, also have at their fingertips the means to learn about what is out there that might be good for them to buy and not be so illiterate on that subject anymore. Then they are able to ignore the salesman nonsense and ask for and get what they want. Or walk out and go to another place to get precisely what they are looking for and not something else. Normal people, at least.
