    That probably depends on where you're browsing. Some people on WHT (though thankfully not many) see the opposite.

    Personally, I try not to look when I boot up Windows. It just makes me cringe.

    Damn I don't see the screen long enough to make that distinction. My computer boots faster than it should for it's age.

    Hmm, I didn't know there was a more stable OS than Windows!

    EDIT: If I may contribute...

    You know you're on the computer too much when you use "your" instead of "you're."

    I have friends who do it, sounds freaky when you first hear it

    I have a wheelie chair, but I have a rug in the middle of the floor(laminate flooring) so I can pick up speed, but if i hit the rug goin backwards I may as well just dive down the stairs

    I thought I would add to this... what I am about to say, just happened to be 30 minutes ago.

    You know you're on the computer too much (and probably the Internet), when you get disconnected from the Internet, go to emtpy the recycle bin to use up the pointless time it takes to reconnect, and you stop, and think, "Hang about, I can't emtpy it without been connected to the Internet". Yes, this really did just happen to me... I need to get out more.
