Vista: fix or repair daily etc. About what they need to do is crush everything but the box and start over.
I have however decided to go with Linux. I am tired of paying for half built, slow, buggy, bloated, and insecure operating system with poor support. Let's get real here; when the first service packs etc. are larger than the original product something is wrong. Around XP they should have seen the writing on the wall.
I got a Dell with Ubuntu and a Mac Pro, best decision yet.
As soon as I get more technically literate I am junking all the MicroSuck operatings systems I have and I'm moving on.
