This guy must work for Microsoft, or at least get paid directly or indirectly by them. "Grow up and learn patience?" "Everything costs money?" How insulting to the intelligent educated IT people that have enough common sense to get a clue that spending more money to do the same thing AND having it take more clicks to do it is ridiculous. This is the first time in my IT career of 16 years that I've ever stepped backwards to my prior OS because a new version of an OS was that bad. The eye candy that Vista offers is in no way worth the hardware resources, hardware upgrades, software purchases, etc to even remotely justify it. When you've got a Vista desktop sitting idle, using more ram than a 2k3 Enterprise R2 server sitting idle, there's a problem.. The problem is a complete and utter lack of vision by Microsoft (again) to account for the millions of pc users who are going to blindly go out and buy Vista for their computers and wonder why it runs like #$!@.. Never before in the history of Microsoft's upgrade cycle has there ever been such a steep jump in ram and CPU requirements. I'm sticking with XP for now, and that's NOT something I would normally do when something new comes out.. That's especially frustrating for me given the fact that I earn my living as a system analsyt..
