Which mundane PC question do you hate the most?

Every single day, these "Which is better/what do you use etc" type of questions are asked ad nauseum all over the internet.

PC vs Intel, PC Vs MAC, Which A/V, Which Browser et al.



Sometimes these questions are borne of ignorance. Other times they are 'confirming/comforting' questions which validate an impending or already purchased option, current usage habits, hardware assurance and so on. Lots of reasons in other words.

Then there are the intentional trolls who like to light a fuse and step back to watch the show.


Basically we have all encountered them in one guise or another.



However there is often one question that angers a person more than the others. What's your trigger?

I voted for Which browser is the best? Well, they are free, download and do your own research then you'll know why you think it best. Anti-virus would be next, but I can understand a newbie looking for perhaps two or three to try rather than wanting to experiment much with security.

"Then there are the intentional trolls who like to light a fuse and step back to watch the show."

LOL. Loaded questions stand out pretty well and I stay clear of such threads except maybe when extremely bored and then it can be very funny to see how some get their blood pressure up over something that just isn't important in the larger scheme of things. Some people obviously need to get a life.

I voted "other". Actually I wanted to select all of those "Which is best?" questions but as I could pick only one, I had to select "Other".

I have never understood the hype around something that's supposedly "best" or better than all other alternatives. Every OS is the best for someone, every browser and mail client and email provider and so on.

I voted PC vs Mac.

Mainly because those tend to get in the most heated debates as neither side is reasonable enough to yeld.

This is out of ignorance. It's easy to close the discussion though. Anyone can detect the difference between 24 and 60 fps and there are websites with animations to help everyone see for himself, and there are reports that prove that people can detect stuff up to 100 fps.

I used to get quesitons about which was the best OS, back when the Amiga, Atari, etc. were around. I told folks to find the software that did what they wanted, and buy a computer/OS that ran it.

I dislike any question asking "Which is best?" since what is best for me may not be best for someone else.
