Damn you, Windows 7 RC, Damn You!!

Filed under
Microsoft

So, Aparrently windows rc is going to be the best windows since …. , well, the best windows version ever, ( don’t know how much that counts, but… ). The hype as on , the wind was changing and the teachers on the university where praising how great microsoft was for the I’msorryforvista version.

Then I got an idea… What if I could install windows side by side with my linux box, and try both, write about the good things, rant about the bad things?

So I borrowed a Win 7 – 64bits version and created a Key on microsoft site ( a new promotion, or so I was told ), cleaned space, and used gparted to create an empty space for my installation. reserved 60gb for win 7.

What a moron

Os's should come with a little warning graphic stating: "You must have a IQ at least this high to install this OS" and then have a little meter stick with a arrow pointing to 80 or so.

Oh yeah, no backups, bawahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha - what a moron.

The day after

Since everybody appeared to stay that I’m a moron for not having recovery tools ready, and that I’m a moron for not knowing how to recupere a merged 60gb ntfs partition with a 120gb ext3 partition ( that, by the way, I didn’t asked for the windows installer to merge ), only one thing to say: What a great and helpful community.

1 – windows is used as ‘even my grandma can use.’ – well, my mother doesn’t know how to recover data too. , so, let’s stop this fight, okay?

today I was trying to install linux again
