I couldn't agree more!
Unfortunately, this is the way things are now.
It is the high tech society that we live in and the fast pace and expections of life itself.
This along with individuals setting themselves expectations that could possibly be beyond them will cause added pressures and downfalls.
Bring back the good old days.

Well not too old Paul but I know what you mean but the thing is I think it is not so much a point that technology is creeping forward and creeping is quite an apt term for what I see as being ownership by stealth but in the main it is driven I think by greed.

Given that we are now in the age of an "open book" approach as in Windows 10 for example I feel less than happy using some of the newer stuff especially if as I said it has been taken over by some conglomerate that has steamrollered over some great but small companies to the detriment of that companies great product, and I feel that CCleaner is just one example.

It sort of leaves you wondering who will own everything eventually and that is a distinct possibilty I reckon.

Sorry to be such a pessimist but being very cynical now I have to think that way. Frankly I am surprised that some versions of Linux applications have not been "turned" by the pressures of financing the technology
