The fancy new one is running Windows 2000, which means that I should get a machine running XP sometime around 2010. It's so exciting to have a brand new machine to play with, if you define "play" as "reinstall all of your database and FMEA management software, clean up all the useless icons, and put on a new wallpaper, because it's not like you can actually do anything with it." One of the engineers expressed, for reasons unknown to me, a voracious curiosity about what kind of video card the new machine has, and once he found out, he kept saying "It's a GAME card! That's a GAME card!" Okay...what do you want me to do about it? I didn't ask for the card; I just wanted a computer that can process data faster than my fingers. It's not like I'm gonna sit here playing Doom all day.
Anyway, now that Apple has flushed the toilet on their entire market share by inexplicably deciding to use Intel chips, I guess I better resign myself to learning the ins and outs of the Windows OS. It's a long, boring day ahead of me today.
