If you can’t stand change, you’ll hate this episode about putting a new operating system on your computer. Slow dialog: 1:11 Explanations: 3:11 Fast dialog: 16:59 Vanessa: [gasps] What happened to my computer overnight? This can’t be my computer. Reza: It is. The tech guys installed a new operating system on all of the computers after hours. Vanessa: But my desktop looks completely different. Where is the menu bar? I don’t know how to open any of my applications. Reza: You’ll have to get used to a completely different user interface. It’s been completely revamped. Vanessa: But I had the old operating system customized with special settings. Reza: Well, those settings are gone. You’ll have to start over. Vanessa: I don’t even know where to begin. Reza: With this new operating system, you’re supposed to navigate around using those icons. They’re supposed to make multitasking easier by allowing you to minimize and maximize applications more quickly. Vanessa: How can that be when I don’t know what any of the icons represent? Reza: Search me. Here’s one of the tech guys now. You can ask him all your questions. Vanessa: I only have one. Reza: Only one? Vanessa: Yes. Can he restore my old operating system?
