Dumbing down of computing...

All this talk about what is good software makes me want to share this.

I installed MAC OS System 8 on my new PB 1400. Well I must say that weither
it's the NeXT people or Apple finally getting it's act together it works
surprisingly well.

However one of THE MOST annoying features is the normal Apple menu bar now
says, "Help" right after "Special." Why do I have to see this? And to take
that even further does Apple really believe they are going to sell a
computer/OS to someone that already isn't familiar with the Mac? The little
[?] button was bad enough, but now I have to see this stupid Help menu
everytime I look at the Finder. Certaintly in 1984 when this OS came out
and no one had a computer that makes sense, but is it really necessary?

I of course blame all this on Microsoft the kings of dumbing down computing.


p.s. JoeBar, save your keystrokes, whatever you reply in defense of Ms I
will give you your reply now.


'nuff said.
