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.

Thank you! You are exactly right on the money. MD5sums are no guarantees that the package is legit. There are a host of reasons why you should not have an option to always remember this application.

That's why OpenSuSE and Fedora also use gpg to verify packages.
