Pros never had a virus infect my computer
Cons it is so slow to boot up and shut down
Summary I cannot believe how slow this edition has made my computer run. I have never had a virus infect my system, but the slowness is a high price to pay. I have had my system looked at by a professional, and she concurred it is this edition that is the problem. AOL needs to speed it up or lose customers.
Cons Pricing and or Availability
Summary America Online's software, is clearly not for everyone, and those that don't like it at all and never have, are not going to start liking it anytime soon, unless they are reviewing the software and being paid to give a fair opinion. AOL deserves the 8 it receives from CNET, It's not good when Microsoft's MSN gets lower performance ratings from CNET on MSN. I think MSN is CNET's editors choice because MSN, no matter what change it goes through, still reflects a rather corporate personality, while AOL is more individual America Online is for the person who wants convenience online, for techno nerds AOL is not going to win any points. The efforts to streamline the software are paying off, and America Online is still a windows application for most, so because of that, don't expect it to be perfect. I am a an intermediate computer user, and an AOL subscriber, but don't be fooled, just because i'm a member doesn't mean that I am computer illiterate. People chose to use AOL, they are not forced.
