Today I had my first experience using a Win Vista computer. Please: shoot me before it happens again. Never, ever, have I seen a piece of software that is so BADLY made, and so difficult to use. I have a Win XP computer that I had custom built in late 2006. It won't play the newest games, but it has a dual core processor, 2 gigs of RAM, and it does everything I ask of it, with ease. I have it set to look like 'classic Windows'. It was an effortless transition from Win 95 to Win 98 to Win NT4.0 to Win 2000 to Win XP. I thought Win XP LOOKED stupid, with those Fisher-Price puffy icons, but now it looks just like Win 2000 did. Vista: HOLY CR@P! What a piece of garbage! I was trying to give a friend some of my software and music. What would have taken a few hours, at MOST, in Win XP, took at least 8 hours in Win Vista. Neither of us knew how to use Win Vista; it was a 'new' computer to my friend. What an unbelievably painful experience! Could Microsoft have POSSIBLY made the OS ANY more difficult to use? Even if they had some allegedly intelligent people working, day or night for YEARS, to make it as difficult as possible? I don't THINK so. I have Office 2003 on my computer. I opened Office 2007 on her computer, and found it's pretty much just as bad as Win Vista: instead of any visible improvements, it's just HARDER to do the things that I used to know how to do, easily and simply, in Office 2003. Wow, did Microsoft make an enormous TURD. My personal vision of eternal Hell is now being forced to use Windows Vista.....ever again.
