Computers need to be standardized

I was just thinking to myself and wondering whether this really irritates people.  I totally hate seperate accounts for everything, and using the ‘all purpose’ website – for example – Yahoo!, Live, AOL and other websites are all are trying to do EVERYTHING for their users.  We really need a standard, or people really need to make their websites more specific! Right now, I have to use a whole bunch of accounts all over the place in order to do everything I want on the internet.  Also, I need to say that I don’t like using separate applications for stuff like
media playing and things.  Either apple should start supporting WMP (please don’t do this apple!) or (this is better) Apple should let all the other companies use iTunes for their MP3 Players.  If Apple did that, then their sales would go up, because people who don’t have iPods really can’t use iTunes to its fullest extent.  I think iTunes is the best media player ever (except for video), and WMP is simply the ugliest (M$ needs to make the interface color lighter).  There should be one format for video – maybe everyone should be forced into open-source codecs like XviD and then XviD could just have an updater to automatically update the codec whenever a newer, more lossless version comes out.  This really is what needs to happen to make the computer a totally accessable platform that everyone in this world can use.  Everyone seems to be waiting for something like Linux.  Linux will, truly, eventually become the best operating system ever, because of things like the Add/Remove programs box in Ubuntu linux.  Since everything’s free in linux, installing new games, programs, tools, features, and themes is a snap.  Free really seems to be the way of the future, since every game you can get your hands
onto is pirated somewhere out there on the internet.  Here’s an example of how easy it is to download a new program in Ubuntu Linux:


See how easy it is?  Everyone’s gunna have linux in a few years.
No more money spent on computers buy more money spent on Bridge Payday! Last week when I was surfing on internet I came across single board computers, you should check them out, cool stuff.
