I got a new lapdog computer

It is an Acer Timeline Aspire something or other with a fifteen inch screen and I hate it.
I don't like touch pads.
I despise Windows Vista.
I can't perform simple tasks on this stupid thing.
It was designed for non-humans.
The WR got someone to slap this thing together for a bit cheaper than I supposedly could have got it down at the box store.
She won't listen to a thing I say in complaint against Microsoft. She says it's just something I'll have to learn to live with.
Six hundred dollars down the drain.
I should be able to transfer my necessary files from this ancient Windows 98 piece of junk to the new piece of junk, right? Nope, no can do. If I want to save it online and then download it, there is some hope. But the operating systems have nothing to do with each other. Windows sucks.
The WR also insisted I buy a two hundred dollar external hard drive. I still don't understand why. I have tried to use it but it only backed up file folders and not files... I can't get Vista to let me use it to save things to. The button doesn not exist in the File menu!
What is this world coming to when the damned computers are designed by people who have no idea how things are supposed to work in RL.
I checked out some of the user forums for Vista and they are full of little geekoids making fun of people who expect things to actually work. Some of them even suggest that some people should never be allowed to touch a computer. I suggest it is the other way around. If you sell computers and software for a living, if a normal human cannot use your crap, then you should not be allowed to sell it. Niche marketing is fine, for that niche. For the rest of the planet, K.I.S.S.!
