I really like Vist ... not

    Microsoft, in their wisdom, decided at some point in time, to idiot
    proof their software. In effect what they've done is made it more difficult
    to do things if you're not an idiot. Example, they've removed the file type
    tab from the folder options so now you have to go into the registry if you
    want to add more parameters rather than just the default exe to the "open
    with" settings.
    Another example, I've always used Outlook Express rather than MS Outlook
    as my email client. I don't like MS Office. I think it's a bloated memory
    hog and I don't like the fact that you can't subscribe to newsgroups with MS
    Outlook. Now, in Vista, OE is no longer there. You need to use Windows Mail.
    Windows mail doesn't allow you to display your contact list in the same
    window. You have to open a new window to see your contacts.
    The longer I use it the more I realize Vista really blows! I can only
    assume that the son of Vista, Windows 7, is even worse. i wish I had stuck
    with XP.
