Vista in dog years


I don't know about you, but it already seems to me like Windows Vista's been around FOREVER. Maybe because we got a big jump on Vista coverage at TechRepublic, long before the name was officially announced and the first test beta rolled off the line. So yeah, various Vista builds have been bounding around the tech arena for well over a year... but it seems like at least SEVEN.

Good dog, Vista!

Here are some of the latest resources to help you in the care and feeding of the new operating system--or perhaps to help you decide to opt for a different species of OS altogether:

What are you trying to say? Calling Vista a dog. Only time will tell but you might be right, Microsoft may have another ME on their hands!

My wife's aunt has a new eMachines desktop, which she wanted to continue using from her telephone line. I tried, several times, to configure the dial-up connection to my own ISP, with no success. eMachines telephone tech support had no knowledge to provide, and my ISP, AT&T Yahoo told me they had not received training on this system. I gave up, returning to my Linux Laptop with its own PCMCIA external modem.

HELP your wife's aunt exactly? Pointless post...
