I do hate software, I wish computers just worked - I've just had to uninstall ZoneAlarm from my desktop because installing it on the laptop led to the realisation that it hasn't beem updating properly.

On the other hand, every time Windows updates, my computer has a nervous collapse and has to be cossetted into behaving properly again.

All Linux and Mac users will now say, "Ah, Windows, there's your problem right there," but that would be exceptionally unhelpful.

No, my Mac tends to require a day or so of me swearing and rejigging things after an update as well. Fwiw. Also ugh and sympathy and tea.

Why must they be such delicate creatures? You'd think a creation of silicon and metal would be less fussy. :P

Feel free to growl at the Mac users who say such things; too. Maybe their Macs magically require no maintenance and never goof up, but theirs are the exception. I've watched my parents fight through enough setup procedures, reset procedures, software updates, OS updates and consequent memory problems, screen issues, and iCloud issues (to say nothing of Apple userID and password issues) that I'm firmly convinced there's nothing to choose between them.
