So, this is what we waited for for 5 years, and cost 6 Billion Dollars to create. You gotta be kidding!!! The user access control is the most annoying thing I have ever seen. It assumes we are SO STUPID we can't even "start" some apps. without the annoying popup it gives you. Then go turn it off, and some apps. will not even run properly (BTW these are apps. that are Vista capable!!!). Try changing a file association. Used to be real easy in XP: go in Windows Explorer to Tools, Folder Options, File Types, and you could change file associations for just about anything quickly & easily. Not in Vista, that feature is GONE????
The new Defrag is absolutely worthless, as you have no idea on its progress, so you do not know how long it is going to take to complete??? Thank God for after market products like Diskeeper 2007.
Brand New Windows Vista Laptop, on Feb 1st, needed 11 Windows Vista Updates!!!! Give me a Break.
In XP the task scheduler was extremely easy to use. Not anymore!!!
Heck what the hell is all the stuff listed in there anyway. I have been in the computer business in corp America for over 30 Years, and have owned my own business for over 10 years. I truly feel sorry for P/C users going from XP to this, as it will be very confusing, and in the corp arena definitely require re-training the users at the desktop
It will be a cold day in Hell, before I switch from XP Pro to this crap!!!
Linux is the future, and hopefully it will eventually be the un-doing of M$.
