are you a monkey or a typewriter?

Soft. But unflexible.

There is one thing that frustrates me the most about the modern PCs. I have no idea why it is as it is, but it annoys me.

The thing is the rigidity of modern operating systems. And I’m not talking about the good kind of rigidity as reliability and stability. I’m talking about rigidity as in wooden shoes.

I mean, why can’t I choose the arrangement of my tabs in my browser.

Why can’t I choose how my desktop looks like?

Of course, I can change the wallpaper, start menu size and location, colors and other insignificant elements…

But…

It reminds me of the first mass-produced cars.

People can have the Model T in any colour – so long as it’s black” Henry Ford

They just didn’t have an option what kind of car to get. There was only one option: Model T. Color? Black! Engine? 2,9 liter gasoline, 20 HP.

Compare it with today’s million options for almost every model.

When I become wealthy and famous, I will definitely found a software project that will allow anyone, even grannies and children, to customize their OSes as they like.

Their buttons will look like Hello Kitty, their desktop will be 3D, they will have 4 start buttons.They will be able to transfer files between multiple computers, tablets, cellphones, netbooks, and hard drives with one move of a mouse.

If and when they want.

It’s time to paint our Models T!
