As  I glance at the bottom, I can vividly see Opera and Firefox. DFS  sure
knows  which  Web browsers ought to be installed. That Blue E  that  comes
pre-bundled  is  apparently not enough. Moving rightwards, I  notice  that
rusty OE being used. As Outlook is installed, one must wonder why rusty OE
is  even used. Memory hog perhaps? Both Outlook and OE are unstable  (seen
it many times in my own eyes... people sob about losing work).

On  we move to see the Windows shell ('cmd'), which is so poor in terms of
expressiveness.  How  can you get any work done? Even autocompletion a  la
Bash  does not exist. All the Microsoft Office stuff is appalling at best,
especially when one tries to develop for a variety of platforms or be able
to  descend  to what goes underneath the opaque formats. One wonders  what
the  yellow exclamation point in your taskbar actually attempts to  inform
you of.

Thanks for sharing.
