Another Satisfied Microsoft Customer


Wow... and you thought XP had problems... A ex-cop in the US recently ran into problems installing Vista and struggled to get his old programs up and running. After three hours, his patience had run out but his ammunition hadn't... The unfortunate computer took five slugs to the monitor, a sixth missed, passing through into the next apartment.

I only wish I could get in contact with him and say, "It's OK, we know and understand the feelings and frustration you've been through... All is not lost... You missed the tower case altogether so you can still upgrade to Ubuntu and save yourself a lifetime of aggravation."

I got fed up with trying to get MP3s and the like running in Ubuntu (Dapper Drake) on my better half's desktop, although the install worked a treat on my laptop. I've now installed PClinuxOS 2007, and I'm very impressed so far. Have you come across this distro?

He must have been stupid then and bought the 64 bit version of Vista.

If you buy the 32 bit version of Vista virtually 99% of XP drivers work and you have no problems. I should know, I installed Vista Home Premium on Monday as a fresh install and so had to re-install all my software, and everything works fine except one friver, ironically a Microsoft Mouse Driver, but I was able to get the Vista version on the MS website.

I've heard some terrible stuff about Ubuntu recently. it might be popular, but there are far better open source versions available.
