Ok so we hav had the I hate Vista, so now lets have the I love Vista. It's more stable above Vista Home Basic, it really begins to offer some meat to the operating system. Far more than XP does including Stickies, Spell checker in the Windows Mail (vastly improved over Outlook Express) as if I wondered how long it would take before this was done. Networking is better though somewhat harder to use as there still are somewhat archaic instuctions. Far as me is concerned the dektop is better laid out and easier to use. Sure Vista takes memory to run but, since you can do more whats the big deal????????? Oh drivers, well like it is said you may have to do some upgrading in this department, which is nothing really new. I see people asking for patches already, I thought that was the purpose of the online updates right????????? I suspect Vista has way more to offer than I have even looked at yet, and like I said for me at least it is far more stable than XP ever was.
