Windows Heck, Microsoft really weren't kidding when they said Windows 7 was the fastest-selling operating system in the world. NetApplications released its figures for January 2010, and it seems that after only three months of availability, Microsoft's latest baby has already hit the 10% market share mark.

It could be a crap HP driver that meant it didn't work?
However, it is Vistas fault if:

1 stopping the spooler crashes the box
2 It is impossible to remover the printer (OK we did manage to remove it after unplugging the printer rebooting the box and clicking delete repeatedly for 10 minutes.
3 Once the non functional driver is installed it is impossible to select another you plug in the USB and come hell or high water it WILL use the non working driver unless you format and reinstall.

4 You cannot manually install a USB printer

5 And every reboot takes about 5 minutes on fair hardware. Dual core 2 gig ram nvidia card PCBSD Opensuse, Ubuntu or any Linux (let alone Haiku) would fly on the Box.

6 Why does MS have to release an OS (Vista) that almost manages to be usable after 2 service packs is this acceptable?
