Windows Months go, I reviewed Windows Vista, and concluded: "All in all, I am impressed by Windows Vista [...]. Windows Vista is better than XP, and definitely more than just an improved look as many say." After 5 months of usage, it is time to put that statement into perspective.

Those that live in the Microsoft world are stuck, and can't/won't go elseware. Why? Lemmings menatlity. They will complain. moan and groan about delays, schedule, insecurity, performance and cost. And yet regardless of how bad the product is, how poorly it's implemented or whatever negative constraints it places on them, they will continue to use these products. After sometime they just accept it - much like a bad relationship, dissatisfaction in a job, the crashing, the lockups, system freezes, malware, virusus, yada, yada, yada. When the next product comes along, you'll do this all over again...dissapointment, then acceptance.

Shame really...computing was and can be fun. I use a system that is more than thirty years old, gets better like fine wine with age and does more than my imagination allows. Berkeley UNIX...
