    Computers suck

    So far i like it, the initial setup was a bit annoying. Its basically a jazzed up XP with what seems to be alot more security. It automatically installed everything i wanted it to, my bluetooth media center, etc.

    HA! Yeah that would be me! I tested a new box with vista on it at work a few months back and after about an hour of total frustration felt the need to take it out to the parking lot and run it over a few times. I have many choice words for MacroNotSoft due to this vista nightmare that I can't relate on this forum without breaking the rules. Unfortunately I'm stuck supporting MS products at work for the bulk of our folks. I get to run all my main stuff on linux(which never needs to reboot every other day BTW), but I still have to deal with MS for everyones workstations and laptops.

    I'd like them to tell me why a Core2Duo with 4 GIGS of ram still has trouble with Vista and it eating resources on a fresh install! BLOATWARE GO AWAY!

    I for one am glad there are so many problems with Microsoft products. I get paid good money to support those problems. Don't be deceived though... with the popularity of Mac's and browsers such as Firefox, the hacker attention is slowing starting to also concentrate on those products. User education and behavior modification is still the best security defense tool.

    No problem, i wanted a mac, but i got the tower for $599 so ill use it for a while and probably get a mac eventually. Plus with the cost of .45 nowadays, $600 bucks sounded better then 2 grand.
