Windows What makes this Vista article any different? The title provides a clue: it's as much about providing practical working solutions to resolve some of the commonly-quoted Vista annoyances as anything else. That in itself should give all Vista users a reason to read it. However it doesn't matter whether you use Vista or not, because this article does something that most of the others don't: it takes an objective and up-to-date look at the current state of Vista, with a range of facts, clear examples and informed opinions aimed squarely at debunking a lot of the myths and FUD we've been gagging on for the past year. So for those of you still considering whether to make the switch from XP, for those of you who want to abandon Vista and go back to XP, for those of you who used Vista a while ago and who are wondering whether it's worth using again now - this article puts things in perspective with the latest facts.

- I bought the business edition so that I wouldn't have installed:
Microsoft Media Player, Movie Maker, and Photo Gallery, and yet, there they are, un-installable!

( Microsoft, trying to INFLATE your software Usage stats? )

- I turned OFF indexing, yet Vista, behind my back, indexed the drive.
( What's the common meaning of OFF? Don't they know. )

- It runs Hotter then XP by up to 10 degrees.
- It runs like crap under VMWare unless it's got 1.6 Gig of memory.

But, it is prettier.
And, random loading of DLL's should help it's anti-virus protection.
