God do Windows drivers suck. I’m going back to Linux. Holy shit, Microsoft.

What did they do?
They have ten different names for the same exact thing, but each “variation” of said thing has one little line of code that makes it different from everything else and therefore completely unusable for anything unless you somehow manage to find the specific driver you want. Why can’t they make video cards the same way they make flash drives? The vast majority of them have the same protocol and technology requirements, so buying separate flash drives for word documents and music files isn’t necessary. Why do I have to get a new video card? Because, unlike every single other older computer, the motherboard circuits don’t support OpenGL. OpenGL is the basic, foundational video driver. Who the fuck came up with a prefab desktop motherboard that doesn’t support it? Damn.
Sorry, that’s a lot rantier than I thought it would be. I’m kinda pissed off about it.
