Judgement: FAIL.

Well, one thing this brilliant new OS of theirs has got down is "only going catastrophically wrong in the middle of the night or early in the morning." That's about it, though.

Roomie has been hunched over the kitchen table for half an hour, cursing Vista and its inability/unwillingness to network consistently, or to do what it's bloody told.

Aaaaand back to XP, as soon as we can find an installation copy.

Let this be a warning, if someone offers you a cut-rate upgrade: Not. Worth it. It ignores basic commands, overrides painstaking setups that take you an hour to figure out how to even do, keeps protocols for previously simple processes in three different places that you have to go and configure individually, by which time the first one has reset itself to default. Just. What the hell. *hate*

Anyway. Now you know. Though you probably already did. Learning curve, my ass.

Yeah, I've read way too much about Vista to EVER allow it on any computer of mine. Barring the fact that it sucks (well, come on, who made it?), it's scary as hell. Big brother, anyone?

Well, calantha42 bought a laptop a few weeks ago, and I was pretty sure at the time that the reason it was so cheap was because it had Vista on it. People scoffed. But I was RIGHT.

The thing that bothers me most about it is that it DOESN'T LISTEN. It knows what it likes, and it may eventually humour you and let you reset things, but as soon as you turn around, BAM! It's changing your settings. It hasn't listened to the network settings for more than a couple of hours since she bought it. It's like a Mac, in that it thinks it knows better, but worse, in that it decides it does, and acts accordingly. EVIL VISTA.
