    Besides from other troubles with Vista beta 2, I have these 2 big problems:
    --When I log on, explorer doesn't load. A blank blue screen sits there while
    the CPU does stuff. I need to go into the task manager, kill explorer, and
    start it again to get to the desktop.
    --When I do everyday tasks (close a program, play a song, open media center,
    goto, stuff) the screen goes blank, the system restarts, and I
    lose whatever I was working on, and go back to problem one.

    ----Since Apple started using a UNIX based system, nobody can hack into Mac
    OS X. If X can be so secure, and not need hundreds of thousands of
    quantrillions of bug fixes, service packs, and security rollups, why can't
    Microsoft's software be? [seriously I have a ubuntu linux cd just waiting to
    be used]----

    I'd suggest you convert entirely to Linux.

    I had a lot of problems with explorer.exe after an upgrade, works well now
    that I installed clean (of course 80% of my programs won't install or
    install but don't work, then may not even uninstall)

  4. As to your signature, I just got a boatload of security updates (patches)
    downloaded on my OS/X 10.4.7 (MacBook Pro) from Apple. There were far more
    this month for my Mac than even the 11 that came down for XP Pro SP2
    (running on the other partition on the same machine). Enjoy Ubuntu (they
    have security fixes too.)

    Ubuntu is a good distribution. As with Linux, though, I hope you are
    comfortable typing commands in a terminal to the OS.

    You don't **really** believe that no one can hack into Mac OS X,
    do you?

    And you haven't noticed all of the updates that were released by
    Apple this past week?

    Do a clean installation of Ubuntu 6.06 and then see how many
    updated packages you will need to download in order to have an up
    to date system. I hope you have a fast internet connection.

    Vista is still beta quality software. Of couse it has problems.
    Some people will be lucky and most things will work fine for
    them.Others will have multiple problems. That's what beta testng
    is all about.

    If you don't like Windows, use what you like. But, at least go
    with your eyes open.

    hack the daylights out of and are far from secure perfect
