    I agree with this statement

    I totally agree. In fact, I'd go a step further and add an option "You must restart your computer in order for the new wallpaper to take effect. Restart the computer now or later?" Actually, I wouldn't make that an option, I'd make that the default, just like every serious OS does. There!

    Even if free software were ****, it should still get our preference over the non-free **** secreted by IT corporations.

    Do you have a point to make?

    Nope. Just venting my unconditional love and admiration for Windows. Not the right place, I know... Won't happen again.

    Not only do they call it a feature, they are seriously annoyed with those of
    us who don't like the change, because they don't understand why we don't
    like it. Mind you, it's not exactly like they asked us if this was a
    feature we should lose. They certainly don't appear to be listening to us.
