Welcome blog reader to my first blog. For my first topic, I would like to write about something I am very passionate about: computers. More specifically, I want to talk about how I dislike the taskbar in Windows 7. Remember the good ol’ days when there was text on the taskbar to indicate what program was open? And if you have several Word documents open, for example, it combined them, forcing the user to hover over the icon. Then, the user could carefully maneuver the mouse to the window they wish to view.
Today, for many folks, means nothing. It may just feel like any other Tuesday, and in fact, it may be. However, for some, this may be the end of an era, or a least the start of a small headache. Microsoft announced that starting today, Tuesday, April 8, 2014, they will no longer be creating updates or offering technical support for Windows XP. The statement from Microsoft can be found here.
