      And for some much-needed Windows 10 comic relief, watch this short video (in Spanish, so if you don’t speak Spanish, watch the subtitles which move quickly!). Was posted by the ever-entertaining and educating Dedoimedo (www.dedoimedo.com)

      Worth reading the subtitles for! Thank you…

      Example:
      Interviewer- Was it worth adding touch to Windows?

      Microsoft UX expert and MVP Risitas- Of course. We were ruling the market, and it was getting boring…. Let’s add touch and watch the entire PC world go crazy!

      The WX part on techies and tweaking was… well, still laughing!

      … and we all thought it was a different kind of evil plot…

      If that stands for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, I didn’t think that was a new addition. 😀

      After watching it, I laughed out loud… and then guffawed under my breath for the next half hour whenever it popped back into mind.  You know what they say: Nothing is really funny unless it contains a solid kernel of truth! 🙂

      Adding to the joke (for bilingual speakers) is that the actual dialog has nothing to do with Windows, Microsoft, or anything tech. It’s a yarn about being told to hide something away at the beach but then the tide rises and they can’t find it.

      A bit more sensitive, but if you don’t mind the setting, this video about the Windows 8 UI is even funnier.  🙂

        3:45 “I hope they will learn their lesson and make the next Windows much better”

        Well, so much for that!

        I thought this way (as “Hitler” did) when 8 was current.  No way I was gonna touch that!

        Then 10 came out, and it was so bad that 8.x looked decent by comparison.  One single free program, one I was actually using already with Windows 7, Classic Shell (a program I liked so much that I made a contribution to its dev back when it was still active), singularly made Windows 8.x usable, and a bunch of other such things polish it to a nearly Windows 7-style luster. Was this easily-avoidable (but admittedly terrible) UI really the reason that the otherwise solid, quick, stable, non-update-forcing Windows 8.x failed, and was turned into 10?

        Win 8.1 ended up being my last Windows, after all that.  Then Windows 10 and its constant change for change’s sake burned out the Classic Shell dev, and a part of me wondered whether MS had intended that, since they were so adamant in insisting we were going to have tiles whether we wanted them or not.

          It’s incredibly easy to remove all tiles from Windows 10 if they just annoy you. You can now remove an entire group of tiles at a time, so in about six clicks you’re done:

      I’ve seen that guy before.  No one could ever forget that laugh.

      Only problem with this is, not sure whether to laugh or cry
