Windows 7: Do you drive a car like you use a computer?

Windows 7
Do you drive a car like you use a computer?

Hi all,

Figured this would be a fun way to compare your driving habits vs. computing habits

Personally, I seem to crash my pc more then my car. As for speed... I expect my computer to get to point A to point B alot faster then my car lol. Wish my car could get there faster tho. Less traffic on my pc!

p.s. I seen this on my InsideTech blog... thought I would start a thread. hope that's ok

Win7 Ultimate x64 on Desktop / Win7 Ultimate x86 on laptop / Win7 x86 Starter on Netbook

Well, when I drive the car/PC I try to drive carefully. Miss the potholes when I can, I don't like surprises.

I also like speed but only in the right type of car/PC!

I do like to store the essentials in the car/PC but try not to overload it.

The engine/CPU is important, and I like to keep it serviced.

Inside the car/Motherboard should be kept as clean as possible.

All external parts/peripherals should be checked for loose bolts/cables.

The petrol/power supply needs to be the right grade, and you should not let any other liquids into it.

The injectors/RAM should be checked when the annual service is due.

That's my analogy.

Hmm... when driving my PC the goal is to hit as many people as possible.

If I could build a fast, cool looking, great handling, reliable car as cheaply as I can build a computer with the same attributes I'd be driving it -- and it would have computer running Windows 7 in it.
