One thing I have really learned to appreciate about windows is the context menu.

If you're in a new program and don't know what you can do, right click, give me some ideas.
I'm sure apples are great to use once you get familiar with them, however, I have never found them intuitive.


In college, ohhh.... the late 90's I was in a computer lab programming.
I saved my program to my 3.5 inch floppy drive, and I go to eject the disk...
Awesome, there's a button right below (or maybe above I don't remember) the drive, so I press it.
Yes, I did ignore the fact that it had the universal icon for power, and I turned the computer off.

Well how the hell do you get the disk out then?

After asking the lab manager, I was told I need to drag the floppy drive on the desktop to the trash...
