Vista - Its a nightmare.
It came with my laptop and nothing is intuitive and I'm fairly savvy in using pc's. Try and find the control section soyou can change the IP to a static one - Nowhere. Many other issues like that all over Vista.
Try figuring out how wireless and or Lan work or how to switch each on or off - good luck
Its business I'm in, not time wasting.
I sell products that are windows compatible, programmed, client-server managed and none of them are usable or reachable via Vista. Are they nuts? Dont they realize that today's world of products and services are usually set up and managed by a software disk and compatability is a serious issue.
I undid Vista happily and everything that I needed to work does again using XP.
Microsoft - You really dont know your user base at all. Thats why IT folks love Linnux and not microsoft or haven't you heard that yet? Welcome linus, open office, Net 2 and good by microsoft, or dont you get that.
Oh, I see, Vista is much prettier with features I dont need but look great. Come on now.
Admit its a mess like ME and kill it off before it kills you off and it will.
