    At first the ads were in French, now they are in English. From where am I coming to you?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    They've changed that, now.
    It's actually pretty weird.

    This is true, at least it is for this American. though that doesn't address the English ads. I can tell the difference between the other two and English.

    Windows seems to be so much more work with all the security crap to remain on top of.

    Nah. I installed Webroot and never worry about security.

    In many ways I like Microsoft's Windows and have since NT3.5 or thereabouts - the earlier ones were uniformly awful. What I dislike about it is how slow it is to process updates, installs, uninstalls and it's religious fetish toward rebooting.

    As for security, ever since Intel added their monitoring supervisor core to their PC chips I've given up on trusting any PC regardless of the operating system. I have no trust in my smartphone either, obviously. I trust my reel-to-reel tape recorder. Krapp had it right.
