Fun, as many things, is relative. 10 years ago I probably would have sounded like you, but after diverse little incidents, like Vista or Weight, my patience is growing thin. PCs are not telephones, Mickeysoft is not Apple, professional users are not consumers and life is too short to wait for them to get the proper perspective again.

If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.

It's really too bad that we still can't do WPF development on Linux. I'd switch in a heartbeat.

So I turned on the iMac for the first time in a couple of years. Several updates are required as well as the El Capitan upgrade.
Install the updates and restart and all is good. Then go to upgrade El Capitan and now the FagStore wants me to secure my account with 3 question/answer combos. What a load of shite.
Don't know what questions I selected, but the answers are either Faarrrkkkk off, Faarrrkkkk you or Faarrrkkkk it. Hope I get several attempts to answer if needed.

There you go again. Bringing logic into it. These are people who never let fact get in the way of a good rant, despite the fact that they're supposed to actually know something about computers. On the whole it's best to just stand well back and let them fizz out. Don't go poking the wasp's nest by saying stuff like you've just had your umpteenth successful automatic update without the slightest hitch. I did once, but I think I got away with it!
