Yeah, and with a TV you do not have to learn how to switch it on, tune the presets, learn how to operate the different functions on the remote control, adjust the volume, color, brightness etc for ambient conditions.
And connecting up VCRs and setting the timer and programming it to record you favorite shows etc.
And as for connecting up digital decoder boxes and dealing with HDTV, well that's just too much to expect, is it not?
I mean people just do not want to learn do they, because they are too lazy to deal with their ignorance?
A PC and the OS and software that goes with it, is a tool.
Do you learn how to use a tool (hammer, saw, chisel) properly?
And people just buy cars and do not want to learn how the innards work, but they still have to take driving lessons and pass a test
the last I heard.
So do you really
think that it is any different with PCs?
No pain, no gain, adapt and learn.
