The fundamental problem here is that Vista is a stonking great big piece of
. Five times bigger than XP on your hard disk and just so one can have transparent windows...the world has gone stark raving mad...or rather the retailers need some new resource guzzling piece of software to sell people so that have to upgrade their computers. Sales to get more sales...

Vista is so horrible it makes XP "Professional" a delight to use, after a few command code modifications have been made...and these are freely available on the internet. At least the future is bright...the future's Linux! I've suffered from 3.11 to XP and I'm not going any further with Microsoft...XP will be the last of their products I buy, and with free open-source equivalents of "Office" etc. now available and highly capable I look forward to sweeping away the last vestiges of filth from my hard disk...

I have also found McAfee to be good in the past but things are always changing and so long term brand loyalty can sometimes be a "hassle-free" rip-off e.g. long term bank customers suffer below-inflation interest rates while competitve new accounts are only marketed at potential customers! One must be forever vigilant...the entire concept of a corporate brand is counterproductive in the long run to the best interests of an individual.

I'd love to know if someone has done a scientific study to compare the average blood pressure of users of Windows,Apple,Linux,Unix etc... performing some standardised set of tasks such as installing a modem, changing the screen resolution and setting up a hard disk partition etc. I'm sure the results would be amusing, although perhaps people with naturally higher blood pressure just choose 'Windows' because it sounds nice.


As Michael Winner said, "Calm down! It's just a screensaver..."
