13. Most IT Professionals I Know Hate it
Perhaps the best example was a funny tech support guy I talked to two weeks ago. I'm an IT professional myself, but my area of expertise leans towards software. During a hotel stay in Denver, the hotel's wireless became uselessly slow. Most hotels just don't have enough access points to support wireless users when they're at capacity, but I figured I'd give tech support a call because sometimes the network just needs to be reset. So guy picks up, I explain the problem and we cover a few preliminary bits of information. He asks me what OS I'm running and I say I just switched back to XP. There's a pause, and the guy says "Hell yeah, they can have my XP when they pry it from my cold, dead laptop!"
