I was helping a friend set up their new printer on their new lap top with Vista installed. The laptop has four gigs of ram and yet it took longer to load Vista than my old desktop with 256megs of ram to load XPhome ;~). The printer I set up was identical to the one on my machine, but took 45 minutes to install instead of ten minutes it took on my old desktop.

It took so long my friend actually had time to boil a kettle, make tea and put out a plate of cookies before it was ready to go. I'd heard vista was bad, but it's worse than I believed it would be. I feel much better now that I purchased an Imac....

Lovejoy

Totally agree. If it can't operate your system, it's not an operating system. On that basis Vista - for me at least - is ****. I say again, give me Win 2K any day of the week.
