It is not so much of an issue with computes as it is with operating systems. If I had to guess you are using windows.

Definitely a OS problem and not a computer problem. There are many many different OS's to choose from. Maybe you just haven't found the right one for you yet.

Even if you are using Windows, you can generally improve the experience by your choice of software. I run Vista on hardware that can handle it and it is totally pleasant with:

Opera instead of Internet Explorer
Foxit Reader instead of Adobe Reader
VLC instead of windows media / real player / quicktime
No itunes! Apple software blows on windows platforms!

The only thing Windows can't be is secure, but other than that it can function quite well.

I'm running Vista. For the most part it works just fine.
I did once have a problem finding drivers for a particular bit of hardware. Why they would put an OS on a computer with hardware that does not have compatible drivers I'll never know.

I'm running Leopard on a dual-core Intel Mac. No problems, other than software compatibility which is improving every day.

This is actually one of my worst fears about going back to school. I'll be using my computer extensively, and I would hate having to go through a session of backing up data files and formatting.
