    Well.
    I Beta tested Vista along with Office 2007, I was not impressed. (I really
    tried to use it too).
    I think I'm gonna load up Ubunyu linux and Open Office on my removable hard
    drive again (my beta has expired)
    and so it begins!

    LOL

    I, well....can sort of tolerate it. Haven't found anything that makes it a
    "gotta have".

    Lots of aggravations, learning curve to find where they hid and moved all
    the things I knew how to control is steep, and, as in all new versions of
    Windows, it's less and less MY computer and more and more Redmond's.

    Fer'instance: Can anyone explain why you create restore points in System
    Properties, but use those restore points in System Restore? Why were the
    two actions split apart? Dumb.

    It's too bad that your newsreader doesn't have a spell-checker. You're
    obviously not using Windows Mail.

    I had a bad start. The first installation failed but a clean install worked
    perfectly.

    You post on top...I prefer that.
    I have 2 HP notebooks with XP and Vista on my desktop...they are very
    similiar in operation.
    My Flight Simulator X was crappy on XP but it is very realistic on Vista.
    I'm very pleased with Vista Basic...not going any higher unless I buy a new
    desktop with it pre-installed.

    True on the aggravations...I have time to just look around and learn.
    One thing I don't like is having to defrag both my hardrives when I only
    want to defrag the main drive.

    Windows Mail does not come with a spellchecker per se...mine comes from
    Office and if I didn't have Office it would be greyed out as a choice.

    It did on my installation of Windows Vista Ultimate, a clean install using
    an upgrade version. No version of Office installed, nor any other 3rd party
    spell-checkers.

    My Vista will not run Flight Sim X but will run marginally on XP. I have
    dual boot system with only 1 gig ram (maximum on machine). What is your
    system where MSFSX works realistically?

    Thanks,
    REL

    I have 1.5 gig of memory and a GeForce 6800GSOC on an EMachines T3101 w/AMD
    1.8ghz Sempron processor.
    Nothing expensive...

    I post on top because a few other newsgroups I belong to have so many
    answers to one question that its a real pain to have to scroll through
    sometimes 20 replies just to get to a 4 word response.

    I just bought a HP Pavillion dv9339us came with Vista premium and 2 gigs of
    ram and 200 gig HD ( 1 sata 120 and 1 sata 80 ) as I said I have vista
    premium, vista business ( I went 1/2's with a friend ) and Vista Ultimate 64
    ( I went back to the original premium because the 64 bit Ultimate wouldot
    work with some of my programs that arent 64 bit yet )

    Old diehards insist on posting on the bottom...It's extremely old fashioned
    and extremely non-productive.
    I don't like to wade thru all that crap either. I suppose there is a
    computer somewhere in this world that functions as advertised...I've never
    found one.
