Scott Schnaar writes about the pain we’ve all suffered: the pain of getting a new machine to look just like the comfortable old nest the last machine had become. Having just upgraded to a dual core to keep up with the Multicore Jones’s, I say, “Why deal with it?”
For me, the apps I had on the web were immediately ready to go, just as I had left them. I approached the apps on the desktop the way I always do: I install and configure them On-demand. If I need one, I install it, but I don’t try to get ahead of the curve.
It’s amazing how many of the desktop apps drop off compared to the online apps that I keep right on using because there is no effort.
