I worked in IT for a number of years, and I still hated seeing the blue screen on my home. Thoughts like 'when was the last time I backed up my files' and 'how much is this going to cost me in replacement hardware'. I'm so happy my wife and I moved from Windows to Mac. It's been about 8 years now and we've only had one issue between the two of us - a video card died - and that's it.
That makes me feel heaps better, but! it's not just us.
I think a lot would not admit they felt maybe the same.
I'm on mine a lot of the time, when not working.
Having said that, for a lot of people who live alone, it is a way to connect.
The blue screen of death always makes me panic! I worry if I've lost all my "stuff' on the computer, how long I'm going to be without, if we're going to need to fork out money (which we don't have) to buy a new one...I'm not going to jinx myself by saying whether my computer crashes often or not!
as I have a good friend who helps me.
He is very knowledgeable about PCs and faults.
I have learnt much from him and have learn't never panic and never delete something unless you know why or what for.
My computer rarely crashes as I run a good anti-virus and anti- Malware
My ITablet is offline more than it's online.
When I hit 'submit', 'next' etc, it decides to go offline.
What should take a few minutes ends up taking nearly an hour.
Trying to book a Theatre ticket is practically an impossibility. Actually, ditto that for ANYTHING I'm trying to buy online.
One day, I was SO frustrated with its' slowness, I nearly, in a fit of pique, smashed it to smithereens on the floor!
I get totally fed up with its' slowness, & unavailability!
