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.

His desktop has plenty of icons and even shortcuts already set. The problem is that unless it is really comprehensive, it doesn't fix the problems I am afraid.

Also when he downloads files as in email attaches they go to the desktop. If he could organize things by himself, I am sure it wouldn't be a problem, as he would already understand more what is going on... Think for instance every time he needs to browse for a file, in those file opening windows... Unless the shortcuts were all there as well, in a comprehensive way, he would have problem navigating the directories to find what he needs...

Let's say, the more the O.S. organized the things and made them straightforward by default, the less the user would need to learn about what's going on to get things done.

The O.S. needs to behave well by default.

BTW, sometimes when he is playing Carom3D, the dialog of the antivirus is activated on the background and the game window is "minimized", and he needs to click back on the taskbar game window button to go back to it and resume it.

These little annoyances can be stressful, like those windows asking for updates of programs, or Windows taskbar messages warning the user of something...
