I totally agree with you. What's going to happen when even Techies have to get support. I appreciate all of the advances that have been made, but 10 years ago, I could take a 386 and make it hummm like a 486. Just because I could tweak the configuration and fine tune it like a swiss watch. Now, I find myself constrained by an operating system that doesn't allow for as many configuration possibilities.Originally posted by deh:
One thing I hate about NTFS. I like DOS, maybe I am old school or just have some programming in the blood but I knew as long as that computer could boot to a command prompt you could get any info off of it. Now I know if you can't boot to Windows you can troubleshoot it but I just like having DOS as the backup. And that Repair feature? Geez soon there aren't going to be any true troubleshooters out there. Computer support now just wants ya to insert restore disk rather than solve the problem.
Another thing, If DOS crashes, 99% chance you have a hardware problem.
