With all this griping about the younger generation, I have to say one thing on our children's behalf: At least they are not our parents.
A while back, my mother gave me a printout of part of her unpublished autobiography. Around 1945 in what was soon to become East Germany. Except her immediate neighborhood, which became Poland. So of some interest.
I asked if she still had the original word-processor file. In reply she said that she didn't use a word processor, just her computer and printer.
Now, it is true that the document contains no formatting beyond paragraph breaks, so she might have meant that she did it in a text editor.
But I don't think so. I think we have here the equivalent of "I didn't use a browser. I just went online."
