When Windows makes Linux look easy...

Technology

Easy minimum 28 step – two hour process to install an astroimager driver on @Windows 8.1…

  1. Attach device and wait for Windows to not find driver.
  2. Tell Windows where to find the driver.
  3. Wait for Windows to complain the driver is unsigned
  4. Open sidebar and click on Change PC Settings
  5. Navigate through menus to find Advanced Startup
  6. When machine restarts select Troubleshoot
  7. Select Advanced Options
  8. Select Startup Settings
  9. Click Restart
  10. Scramble around for physical keyboard to connect to tablet
  11. Connect keyboard and press 7
  12. Attach device and wait for Windows to not find driver
  13. Tell Windows where driver is
  14. Windows installs driver.
  15. Device works!
  16. Install Windows update – Windows forgets about driver
  17. Attach device and wait for Windows to not find driver.
  18. Tell Windows where to find the driver.
  19. Wait for Windows to complain the driver is unsigned
  20. Open sidebar and click on Change PC Settings
  21. Navigate through menus to find Advanced Startup
  22. When machine restarts select Troubleshoot
  23. Select Advanced Options
  24. Select Startup Settings
  25. Click Restart
  26. Scramble around for physical keyboard to connect to tablet
  27. Connect keyboard and press 7
  28. Wait at least 2 hours for the tablet to reboot…
  29. There’s no need for this insane process. I can’t fathom why the rocket scientists at Microsoft would force users through it. When Linux has an easier device driver installation, you know Windows has a problem.
