I have used Windows since Windows 3, but only because most of the software that I need for business, or simply enjoy using, requires a Microsoft Operating System. I also add the Linux Operating System but I only really use that for its similarity to the Unix Operating System; educational and historical reasons.
I have used Windows XP, with Service Pack 3, for the past 7 years and am reasonably satisfied with that OS. However, on my new desk top, which I built myself, I have installed Windows 7 Pro and Linux.
My problem is that I do not like the way the, ‘My Computer’, is presented, and I thoroughly dislike that fact that I cannot enter all of the directories or files indicated. This is MY computer, not Bill Gates’ and I MUST have complete dominion over it. What is going on inside these forbidden files? Are they being sent to some security branch of the government without my consent?
At present I am considering removing Windows 7 and replacing it with Windows XP.
Any views or suggestions?
