RE: Upgrade from XP to Vista failed
I hate to suggest you problems are a sign from the gods... but I just don't
think Vista is ready for primetime. It comes off as a beta release and is
beginning to remind me of the reviled Win ME. Aside from the compatibility
issues I've never seen so many programs that stop responding and won't even
shut down using task manager. The new Windows Explorer make file management a
pain... the touted search engine doesn't show keywords in context... so
what's the point. (It's also a sleazy way to leverage Vista to go after
Google). The UAC security prompts only make you wonder how insecure Vista
must be without such nonsense. There's nothing of substance in Vista that's
worth the switch.
