Brief hiatus, anyone?
It’s been quite some time since I’ve added any new content to this blog. This is partially due to the fact that my career has taken some turns and the amount of free time I have doesn’t seem to outweigh my obligations quite the way that it used to. It has also been due, in part, to internal conflict.
For many years, I have been providing support for Windows technologies in magazines and forums across the internet — an effort that has earned the name Windows Guru by some of my dedicated readers. Over those many years, I have provided support for software that I liked.
I’ve been less than pleased with recent releases from Microsoft. In fact, with Windows 8 and Office 2013, I flat out don’t like them. So much so, in fact, that Linux has been getting much more use than in times past including a permanent install on one of my laptops. My other personal machines will never see upgrades to the current MS offerings. This is has left me in quite a position. Do I hang up my hat or continue supporting software that I no longer believe in or use?
After much debate, I have decided to continue supporting the new versions. Partially because I am unable to escape them for the foreseeable future at work, but mostly because I wish to continue my dedication toward my readers by providing a service that I love to provide. With that being said, let’s see those questions coming in. Ask the Windows Guru!
