After finally updating my Windows Vista with Service Pack 2 I decided it was time to upgrade my Internet Explorer from 7 to 9, though I would never be using it. There are times when I feel that I may be criticizing IE too much. So I go to my IE7, search for Internet Explorer 9 and go to its download link. And this is what I get.
Yes IE7 cannot even properly open the download site for IE9. I mean I knew IE was bad but this is unimaginable!
Image credits: The screenshot of error belongs to me. If you want to get this picture I would recommend you installing IE7 and going to download site for IE9. Good luck!
I was recently updating my Windows Vista (yes I still use Windows Vista, don’t ask why) and this is how it went.
Downloading 231 MB of updates — 1 hour
Installing Updates — 3 hours, yes THREE hours
Technology is changing at a frenetic pace today. Yesterday it was MySapce/Orkut today its Facebook, yesterday it was Internet Explorer today its Google Chrome, yesterday it was flash drive today its cloud, yesterday it was Sunday today its Monday (okay forgive me for the last one). So if you have used these really old technology and products then please don’t feel old.
1. Windows XP
I upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows XP (skipped Windows Me PHEW!) and immediately fell in love with its interface. The rounded corners at the window were a new thing back then. So were three themes of blue, olive green and silver. And the default wallpaper called Bliss was probably the most watched photograph in the world! The OS is still so popular that many software support it except for Microsoft’s own Internet Explorer 9.
