Microsoft har gennemført en undersøgelse i Storbritannien for at skitsere de grunde, som frustrere Windows-brugere den mest. Ikke overraskende, en alder af computere viste sig at være nummer et frustration og årsag til problemer.
Den undersøgelse also reveals that waiting for old computers to load costs users a whole day.
Old Computers Take Up to 65% More Time to Load
The results also show that the average home machine is at least three years old, and the time such a machine needs to boot up is 65% longer. Forventeligt, the more time a PC needs to load, the more frustrated its owner gets. The exact time is 23.5 hours – the waiting to load time on a yearly basis.

The longer time needed to boot is not the only issue stemming from the PC’s age. The older a computer is, the more issues there are to fix. Ifølge undersøgelsen, a three-year-old (eller mere) computer needs three and a half more time for problems to be fixed. The issues are often related with infections and viruses.
Old computers also lead to physically-expressed frustrations like hitting or shouting at the machine, the survey shows.
Mere specifikt, two-thirds of the participants (65%) have admitted to such aggressive reactions caused by their machines’ age.

Andet (totally expected, we must agree) reaction to the bad performance of a computer is… drinking. About six per cent of UK users have admitted to crying or drinking due to PC-related frustrations.
There’s also a relation between the age of the computer and the age of their owners. Users over 55 generally lose about two hours each month waiting for their computer to start. One in five is still using a machine that is at least 5 år gammel.
The survey also shows that there are many people that underestimate the modern features available on their computers such as voice command and facial recognition. Most users think that these features will be available on their PCs in at least two years. Som du ved, both of the features are currently available in Windows 10 og andre platforme.
