Windows As someone who uses Windows Vista practically daily, I've always wondered where all the negativity in the media comes from. Sure, Vista isn't perfect (as if any operating system is), but I just don't see where all the complaints are coming from. It runs just fine on my old (6 years) machine, all my software and hardware is compatible, and it's stable as a rock. Microsoft has been wondering the same thing, and after a little test, they may have found out why people seem to dislike Vista so much.

fun times

I spent several hours having fun times with Vista today. First problem was things showing up twice in t he start menu. You could only get rid of one of them though. Then I had fun with the damn profiles. Some app settings are stored locally and per user. Which means that they dont travel with roaming profiles. These include the settings for CS3 and Visual Studio. Which means that everytime our students start the app, they have to wait for the system to set up the environment for the first time. YAY! So glad we moved to Vista. Then there is also Director which wont run unless you are Admin. Vista IS crap.
