A few thoughts on Windows usability

FYI: I decided to take down this post.

If you missed it, the highlights are: I've been a Linux desktop user at home since 1993, and I ran Linux on my desktop at work from 2002 until the end of 2015. At my current job, we use Windows on the desktop. There are a few things about Windows that continue to bug me: ctrl-backspace isn't the same everywhere, PrtScr acts differently to me, and no virtual desktops.

I don't want to focus too much on Windows in this blog. But I thought the usability comparison was interesting. I took down the post because I decided I want my blog to be about open source software and not talk about proprietary stuff.
