Actually, that was originally posted by the main coon not me. You'll have to ask him if he's trying to bring the big, bad, bear into this...

Not that I would take your advice or anything but, just for laughs, who would you suggest that would be better than a former NASA flight design engineer that is a member of the MacXperts network for 20+ years and who's probably built, serviced and sold more computers than you've owned in your misinformed life?

Not that I have an opinion...

Having met Maine_Coon and read Jay's posts (and argued with the latter as well) I have the following observations:

1. Maine-Coon is a very intelligent guy whose tech savvy exceeds mine-which itself is considerable.

2. McBear is a thoughtful, intelligent guy who also has a great deal of tech savvy; he and Maine_Coon are dead-on with their points in this thread.

3. The only thing posted by Jay in this thread that is accurate is his sig: don't believe everything you think.

4. It's unfortunate that Jay doesn't follow the advice of his own sig.

5. Arguing with Jay is like having a battle of wits -- with an unarmed man.

Ok back to this crap called Vista.

We have a brand new tower(at the PD I work at P/T) with it and it is constantly having "memory" issues with a 250gig hd and 2gigs of ram. It is constantly shutting Explorer down due to lack of memory. You cant do updates unless you are an admin(from Microsoft no less). It's userface I would venture to say is VERY unfriendly and the new Office SUCKS!!!.

Has anyone hated to new layout of Word as much as I?? Its too bad with all the unecessary fluff that they didn't include a "classic" view in the new interface of Vista or Word.

I will be with XP Pro until they no longer support it. Hopefully by then a new OS will be around or I will venture over to Apple by then.

Considering too its not completely backwards compatible, we are taking it back and just ordered a new tower with XP Pro and Office 2003.

Good job Microsoft!

Okay, as much as I question the usefulness of Vista, you can't install updates in XP unless you have admin rights (or unless the domain is configured to do it) which is the same thing as Vista. That said, if you were to install the patches and updates many of your reported issues should be resolved. And you can configure the GUI in your profile to be like classic windows (which actually conserves resources because in doing so you turn off several of the Vista bells and whistles). It's still a pig, but it's a more stable, happier pig.

Unfortunately I have no advice re: Office 2007. It's a giant suck.

Are you able to get a refund for your system? If not it's cheaper to just buy the other OS and Suite and start from ground zero. That way you have your Vista license to fall back on when XP loses it's support.

Just a thought or two, good luck.

Hey Greg,

I could argue about my tech savvy exceeding yours.

Everything else is right on.
