I just keep changing them every time I install something new because it's so
much fun. Using Windows and sticking with XP for 7 years is like going to some
cheap restaurant every day and having the _exact same meal_ at the same place.
It's boring, it's repressing, and it ignores human nature that seeks diversity
or individuality.

Oh, actually, Windows has different versions*, which are the equivalent of
going to McDonalds and receiving the option to _remove_ pickles, fries and a
drink. It's only an illusion of choice.
