...Fifteen minutes? Even on the ancient computer specs you've listed, somehow, I doubt fifteen minutes is an actual load time. I'm not even touching the rest of that baseless vitriol.

I realize it may come as a shock to some that a new operating system might need more powerful hardware than its >five-year-old predecessor, but I suspect these same people are also shocked when the sun rises in the morning. I can't believe that I, of all people, actually need to defend a Windows OS.
