It says all you ever did with your laptop was run a communications
program, and that is a very simple task for Windows to perform on a sole
basis. Open up 10 other applications concurrently and use them actively,
then see how Windows holds up.

If this is what Microsoft thinks the consumer market will tolerate, and
the consumer market does tolerate it, then who holds the shame?
