That Damn Windows Key
A little off topic...
I've been complaining about this a lot lately, and I think it's time to see what others think about this travesty.
I was always a windows user, before I found Ubuntu, which I immediately fell in love with. Like many Ubuntu users, I grew a hate for anything Windows. I still used it for games and such, but I just hated it. Then about a month ago, I got involved in the OSx86 project, so now I mainly run OS X Leopard 10.5.2. I think Mac and Ubuntu are great, and they can handle anything I want, except games.
So I guess Windows got something right, they built a monopoly on the gaming industry so now you need a windows machine to do any kind of gaming. Well, unfortunately, that also sucks. I play Team Fortress 2 almost every other day, and I love it. However, when my gaming experience is interrupted, I get pissed.
So how does it get interrupted? With that damn windows key. Any OS where a simple key can make a game crash is unacceptable. Sometimes I miss control while attempting to crouch, and I am faced with a crash.
Anyway, what are your experiences with the Windows Key? Let's turn the comments section into an OS War.
Don't kill each other,
PS - I may or may not be writing another article today, but keep checking back for the track-a-day system might be released.
