So what do you think of Windows Vista?.

Who has been using it for a while? Do you like it?

I confess that I don't have it on any of my machines, but I do have to sit in front of Vista boxes pretty regularly since I get MANY calls from friends who need some help with it.

Overall, I like Vista. It's visually very appealing and it has many features that people will find useful, as soon as they can find them. That's my problem with it right now, and it's mostly an education problem. I don't know where everything is RIGHT AWAY and I'm used to XP where I know where almost everything is and I know of a number of ways how to get there. Now I'm looking around; where is the printer menu? Heck, where's the Device Manager?

I'll get used to it soon enough, I'm sure.

Here's a screen shot of a very interesting and priceless Vista error message:

So is this a good thing or a bad thing? Hmm.....

I was wondering about Vista. I'm all XP and since I won't be buying a new computer any time soon, I think I'm safe.

I've seen that "error," but actually it was on XP I think. Stupid.

I had to downgrade back to XP because some of my apps wouldn't run. Lots of fun.

See, now why are you going to blow my cover like that?

What I want to know is where you be Pavel?
