The result of a blogging accident

Windows fun.

I just tried to do something really simple - create a new NTFS partition on my laptop in the ~4GB of unpartitioned space on it. Unfortunately that is too complicated for Windows, and so it wipes out the root of my Linux partition while it’s at it. Yay, now I get to do two OS installs instead of just one.

Windows x64 is still a pain in the butt, programs rarely exit cleanly if they are more complex than a web browser. Games randomly reboot the machine during play. What the hell, why can a program like that be able to do that? Isn’t that what all this data execution prevention crap is all about?

I don’t know how Windows users put up with this.
