Damn, it feels good to own a PC again. :-°

Now, anyone have any tips for getting used to Vista? :-S

Dump it for XP until sometime in late 2009 when Vista will be "functional".

I was thinking of getting a laptop but I would probably throw it into the wall if the useless whistles and bells on Vista were too annoying, which seems like a guarantee the way MS operates...

Unfortunately, that requires a little thing called money. I spent all I'm willing to spend on this laptop and the extra RAM needed to allow Vista to function smoothly.

The comp came with Vista but not enough RAM to run it right? Where did they sell you such a piece of garbage? :-o

I'm on Vista. Anything specific I might be able to help you with? :-)

Not an Apple yuppie here, but Vista does have some really stupid glitches. The new TCP/IP stack is the most annoying for me. :-[
