It’s 2009 and I feel like my computer is just as slow as it was in 1999 (both work and home computers). Surely there’s a ton of things I can do now that wasn’t possible in 1999. Even basic features like OS X’s hot corners weren’t around ten years ago. But, it’s a fact that it takes at least 3 times as long to shut down my computer and even doing very basic functions takes just as long now as it did back in the day. There’s times I wish my OS was bare bones OS 8 style and was built strictly for speed and not be bogged down with all the cutesy bells and whistles. I suppose I’m talking like a Linux user now. Oh well.
