There are so many basic things which simply do not work - and which worked perfectly well in Windows XP and even Windows 2000 !!
SO MY QUESTION IS:
Before I waste time ploughing through newsgroups and effecting dark registry hacks to solve all these (often almost trivial) issues:
IS VISTA WORTH THE EFFORT ?
The reason I ask is that I have heard one or 2 (but not enough to be sure!!) mutterings that Microsoft are going to let Vista die a "quiet death" and concentrate on the next major version !!
Can anyone enlighten me one way or another ?
It was Windows Longhorn that died a quite death, a predecessor
to Windows Vista that was never officially released to the public.
However, you may want to wait a little longer, perhaps until october
or november this year for software and hardware vendors to get it
Finally, A word about Linux and the remote desktop loophole
contrary to popular belief Linux cannot protect you from a
remote desktop or vpn hacker, this is not a flame, it is a fact.
But if you have to have it now, then Meditate and you may find
the answer in the open source or freeware community, sorry but
that's all I'm allowed to say about that.
