You Can't Touch My Windows Experience Index

Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Leave it to Microsoft to quantify everything.

The experience used to be emotional. There was the gentle purr of a power supply fan with the scent of plastics in the air. The caress of a firm, rubberized nipple would make pixels dance in front of my eyes. Those days are over.

My Windows Experience is now a cold, calculated number.

Windows Experience Index

Top that!

What's that you say? A low score is bad? Oh.

Well, this desktop was a top of the line computer…

… back in the year 2000.

My brand spanking new Precision M90 gets to 4.7. I'm told the scale goes to 5.9, so I was a bit disappointed. The component guilty of being "lowest subscore" is apparently the RAM. Oh, how I yearn for an AMD CPU, with their superior memory controllers :)

Time to upgrade, my friend. The world has seen some amazing advances in computing lately. For example, you can store data on magnetic surfaces, rather than using punch cards.

But I love the sound of punch cards. These magnectic things - they make no noise!

Wilhelm: I hope a lot more people will want AMD soon. The stock is tanking!
