If you've gotten help since you've written this, like having to pay more
money to get your purchased product to work as advertised, can you share it
with the rest of us unfortunate windows vista victims here? So much of
the country's time and productivity is being wasted vista. If i have to pay
for something, it will be to partitian the disk and purchase a win xp cd for
installation. That worked so much better.
Note to MS: This Vista product has me kicking myself that i didn't switch
to Apple. The company i worked for would never release as buggy a product
as this and use the customers in the field as their test lab. This practice
is going to be the best advertisement for your competitors. Their rise may
be the only thing that motivates a strive for competency within MS, rather
than comfort in having a monopoly, where the profits are siphoned away from
supporting the product so the top salaries can get more billions of dollars
that they dont even need for themselves.
I hope Gates is happy with dragging down our productivity - and that he can
start a charity organization that offers free tech support for vista users
(the way it is with other big companies).
