A evening with Windows 7

Since I installed Ubuntu on my desktop, I haven’t used Windows for almost two years now. My wife doesn’t like OSX, because she’s used to Windows’ user interface. So she bought a Sony laptop. She complaint this evening that I have used her laptop, and I made it very slow. So I had to “fix” it for her. The problem turned out to be Opera. By default, Opera has “smooth scroll” enabled, which makes scrolling very unnatural. I turned it off for her. I also installed Chrome for her. Now she is happy.

A side note: I think Opera has lost the edge. It was never a major browser, so many website doesn’t really optimise for it. It made more difficult for Opera to gain popularity. It is sad though because it was the best browser, at least used to be.
