Kei finally went and got a new PC (that she will actually be able to get some work done on, rather than needing to use my laptop). It’s a Packard Bell quad core beast, that comes with the brand new and shiny Windows 7 (64bit).
And what can I say? Other than, it’s nice. I think someone at Microsoft sat down and finally listened to what people thought, and designed a UI that doesn’t feel like a labyrinthine insult to the end user – even if it does look like a Vista update rather than a replacement. It’s made me want to shell out £59 quid to install it on my computer now, thought I can’t find a job and the job centre have neglected to pay me any jobseeker’s allowance yet, so fuck knows how long before that’ll happen.
