So says the Guardian columist and professional misanthrope Charlie Brooker at the end of column about Valentines day of all things:

This week Charlie bought a new computer and spent what seemed like 5,000 hours clicking dialog boxes in Windows Vista: "Which feels more like a satirical cartoon about infuriating bureaucracy than an operating system."

Brooker knows a thing or two about tech as he used to be jobbing games journalist. If you have not read his new book (Dawn of the Dumb: Dispatches from the Idiotic Frontline), I heartily recommend it - unless your say George Bush, a Mac Fan or an idiot.
