Christening and furnishing
A couple of days ago, I compared our old computer to a clunker, an old, unreliable car. But changing computers is more like buying a new house and moving into it. The new house may come with several amenities such as bathroom fixtures and air conditioning but you'll be moving in one or more beds, kitchen and laundry appliances, etc. Some of the things you may have loved in the old house won't work in the new because of the style, the carpet, or the paint/wall treatment.
So it is with this new computer which came with a brand new operating system Windows 7. Several of our old programs won't work with that but HP also thoughtfully included several programs that replace many of these that are no longer working. Still, we have to migrate the data and get to know the new programs before they're of any use to us.
