My laptop I think is beginning to collapse under the strain, which is unfortunate. And I have been informed that vista is perfectly all right if you go through and deactivate all the annoying things, but Ihaven't got round to doing that.
I really can't fathom why people are so anti-Vista I've never had any of the problems people report. Been using it for over 2yrs now without any issues
This. Any OS can be annoying at times but, on the whole, i know where i'm at with vista and can bend it to my will. OSX or Leopard, i find hopeless however, despite people raving about how intuitive they are, it just seems clunky with too many graphics cluttering up the desktop for it to function easily (not to mention the keyboards missing several really useful functions!) The only time i have used linux (can't remember which flavour) was in bioinformatics last year and in all honesty i was impressed- it was everything people claim Mac to be- easy to use, clean etc. I think when i get round to getting an external hard drive so i can clean up some space on my Hard disk i'll probably start running linux in a virtual environment on my laptop as an alternative to windows for some stuff. (and maybe do the same for windows 7 too)
