An Appalling Vista


Living in Cork?

Anyone else hearing the Windows 7 startup sound every night in the city?

At exactly 12.01am every night, the Windows 7 startup sound is ringing out across the city.

Have a listen out your window tonight you’ll hear it. People have heard it from Frankfield to Blackrock….

    Anyone in D7 ever heard the mega-loud Ice Cream chime that rings out at random times day/night, rain/hail, summer/winter?

    Ze microsoft corpo announced they were discontinuing support for windows 7 soon so, basically no more security updates and patches… not that it was ever all that secure in the first place.

    I wonder is this some kind of last cry from a Cork windows 7 user or users who are lamenting the past and don’t want to switch to windows 8 or 10 which is a privacy and personal data security nightmare.

    Switch to Linux ?

    Linux Ubuntu
