The problem with articles like that, is that they're so obviously slanted they they're really
shooting themselves in the foot rather than trying to help the cause they're writing for.
It makes the fsf people sound like a bunch of paranoid idiots. why would you want to trust them or their free software after reading drivel like that?

Now that was a well written article.
I can only assume somebody wrote it for him. :-)

"Oh, and synergy. Yeah. They'll talk a lot about synergy. You know, like when you hook together a bunch of data centers that run on completely different technology stacks."

a friend of mine just pointed out MS's pay-per-crash business model to me.

"Calculating time remaining..."

I must switch to XP as soon as time permits.

I never could make it copy the file. Copy. The. File. Across an SMB network connection.

Instead, I logged out, logged back in, started up a virtual machine with XP, and copied the file through the virtual machine.

Took less than a minute.

what if everybody who had a licensed copy of vista called up all at once asking for support on the same issue over and over again.
Sorta like a tech-support-flash-mob.

Man, it'd be really cool if everyone who had a licensed copy of Vista contacted Microsoft all at once, demanding that they rewind the damned thing back to XP.

seems to me if it's bad enough there's a class action lawsuit in there somewhere.
Something about the product doesn't come close to living up to its advertising, since one should be able to expect that it would be better than xp.

So, from the Microsoft forums, I got a response to my query about whether-or-not anything could be done to fix this particularly terrible problem for me.

"Wait for SP1," is basically the response.

I thought Vista SP1 was just released?

I don't think so, no.

It's long enough, though, that one would think so.

Yeah, I'd be hesitant to jump into that. I'll use the normal update mechanisms.

Erm, ok. Suit yourself. I just heard that it was already floating around out there. Oh, and you might not like this article so much....
