It finally happened, this morning at around 11:52 AM; after 8 years of faithful service, my old Gateway computer finally rode off into the sunset. I thought that it might take me awhile to get used to another computer and another operating System- in this case, Windows 7, but as I’m learning, such is not the case. They couldn’t- in fact, have made the transition that I so feared- any easier. While I am still quite sad to have lost my old computer, the new one leaves me with a sense of relief, it appears that the operating system won’t be all that difficult to learn than was Windows XP. I still; have more to figure out with the new desktop but so far it’s looking good.
