A Snail, Crawling on the Edge of a Straight Razor ...

That's my recurring experience with Microsoft Windows. It's just horrifying.

I understand why some people feel like they have to use it -- for example, gamers who have limited choices because game makers build their software for Windows. That's my elder son, who is in the middle of a Windows 7 re-install at the moment.

What I don't understand is why the industrial side doesn't just switch platforms to something that, um, works. If users will put up with Windows, it seems reasonable to assume that they'll put up with the transition to something better than Windows. And pretty much anything is better than Windows.
