    It is obvious nearly all the members of the Microsoft fan club are at
    I agree with your statement 100%

    Businesses will only change to another operating system if there are
    tangible economic reasons to do so. These include the security of their
    data, compatibility with the clients that they serve and improved efficiency
    and reliability over the system that they currently have.

    The production of a 32 bit operating system to replace a 32 bit operating
    system that offers very little improvements and adds a lot in the area of
    obsolescence of perfectly good peripheral equipment was a nutty decision if
    the idea was to go after the business market that has by now heavily
    invested in XP.

    I am new to Vista and it came with Vista Home Premium X64. I couldn't see
    spending money on another 32 bit machine to replace the aged 32 bit machine
    that I have so, 64 bit it was. My scanner was the only thing that wouldn't
    work with Vista but it was worn out anyway. Microsoft hasn't as yet issued
    their office software in 64 bit versions which in my opinion is a very bad
    move. Anyone working with very large documents, databases and graphics and
    video could certainly use the computing power that 64 bit promises.

    As a computer user for nearly 30 years, I don't like the lack of
    customization that this operating system allows. There should be a way to
    set up a personal computer (I mean PERSONAL as I am the only one that is
    going to use this computer) There will be no other users so having user
    accounts is totally useless. Being the only user, why should I have to deal
    with permissions at any level? All of this "handcuffing" of the computer
    just adds a lot of bloat that I for one don't appreciate. I will be
    disabling as much of the stuff that I don't use as I can after I get used to
    how this animal works.

    On the good side, Visa has been very stable and has elegantly shut down any
    old software that didn't operate properly without having to reboot. I even
    got hooked into my home network very easily and I am no networking guru.

    I don't like the Help files. They appear to be so generic in nature that
    they are very close to being useless. This was a problem in XP but is worse
    in Vista.

    I find the speed of this Vista machine amazingly fast as compared to my
    other two XP machines when using the same software and copies of the same
    files. The hardware of course could be the reason for this.

    As far as "cutting the mustard" is concerned, I don't think that Microsoft
    has figured out what mustard they want to cut so the produced so many
    versions of their software that all the did was confuse everyone

    Just my opinion anyway.

    And a very reasoned opinion at that. Especially agree with your
    reasoning about 32 v. 64bit OS.

    I never expect much help from help files, so that doesn't bother me so
    much, but what I find most frustrating is Vista's file management,
    whether 32 or 64bit. I like a lightweight file manager, because I know
    where my files are over two computers and 2 and a half TB of harddrive
    space. I don't need my file manager to cluck along while it tries to
    reindex the same damned file all because I copy or move it to a different
    folder, or I renamed it.

    I am having a hard time getting used to the File Manager. It just seems to
    defy logic somehow. I must look into indexing and see what I have set.
    Sometimes actions are so quick I have to look twice to see if it actually
    happened and at other times I think that I need to give something a swift
    kick to get going.
