Is software good or evil?

Software has enabled us to change typed documents without having to retype them. That would seem like a good thing. And yet, in order for this to happen, I have spent $23,812 over eighteen years on the hardware and software components needed to run a word processor, have had to upgrade my Operating System six times (not counting service packs, hot fixes, and variants) at an average time sink of 15 hours each, and had to reinstall those Operating Systems 115 times.

On the upside, I’ve saved $32.94 in White Out. (There has been no net savings on paper due to the need to reprint bogus documents before proofreading them carefully.)

Perhaps software is good?
