    Thumbs down Latest computer problem

    The reason I have not been posting recently has nothing to do with the holidays. My computer would not stop giving me prompts to install a software upgrade every day until I did it. When I finally clicked on the Install button, it was the last time I could do anything except turn it on and off. Somehow the upgrade installation got stuck at one point and could not finish, as if there was an impasse. Apple Care could not figure it out on the phone. Geel Squad at Best Buy could not fix it and shipped the computer to Apple, so now it is in California while I borrow Mom's laptop. One more reason to not like Apple because this never happened to me with any Windows computer.

    Sorry to hear that, I never used an Apple computer. Hope you get it back soon.

    I always told myself I will never use an Apple computer again after getting my first Windows PC. Then my sister got a Mac Book Pro and talked my mom into buying the same thing. Since then Mom has deliberately forced me to use Apple no matter how much I hate it.k

    Well, if your mother is paying for it, then your freedom of choice is limited, at least she's getting it fixed for you and lending you hers to use in the interim.

    Yeah, but I hate using laptops. Even after zooming in the font on this site is smaller than when I use a desktop of any brand.

    That is not true Linda. I don't have a lot of money.

    Did you try giving Linux a spin? I've downloaded the latest version of Mint Cinnamon, I haven't installed it but I've been booting it off a live usb drive and I really like, it has the Windows feel to it.

    I can tell you this though: Mom would do whatever it takes to block me from buying a Windows PC anyway. Only being a criminal could get me what I want.

    why? You are an adult, you can do what you want, you don't have to justify anything you do to anyone.

    I live with my mom and she makes the rules. Can't do anything about that as long as she lives.

    But that is beside the point. Her computer does the same thing and the last time it did, I showed her the annoying message and subsequent Mojave app window when I closed it. Mom still won't tell me why she would rather click on those two things every day than simply install Mojave and be done with it.
