I hate getting new computers. Actually, that's not true - I hate migrating from a working computer to a new computer. My current machine at work is grossly inadequate and a new one is on its way. How depressing. Depressing because it means I'll have to argue for the right to use software that I have paid for and that makes me more productive. The thought of tolerating substandard software just because it is part of a common operating environment is making me nervous and stressed. And even if I get to use the software I rely on, I need to backup and restore a lot of data and config to get a functional, efficient system again... Sigh.
