    Harsh! I literally laughed out loud when I read this. Thank you for sharing what I was too polite to bring up, Alexis.
    Clint, did you put antivirus software on it before you got it online? Take one of your parents to CompUSA or something, get yourself a good virus/spyware blocking suite and a Vista manual. I swear, it will save you rediculous amounts of time and frustration.

    We took the whole thing back and we're gonna get the right thing this time lmao. Atleast 1 gig ram.

    I'll have to get the premium version because that's really all I wanted vista for lmao.

    Isn't this computer going to live at the cabin? Or did I get that wrong?

    You are only scraping the tip of an iceberg if you upgraded to Vista for Aero visual effects. Sure it may look and feel a lot like XP (which was done on purpose to not alienate people), however the OS was written from ground up.

    Was it though? I think the navigation was written from the ground up, and many things tightened up, but a lot of stuff under the hood is the same, such as the registry.

    And like I said - if it was written from the ground up, why are there Windows 95 files in there, complete with blocky icons?

    puke...Linux is horrible. Its wayyy too confusing and 95% is pointless nonsense (Knoppix at least). Plus, if linux were so good...there would be a bunch of good programs for it...and linux builds wouldn't have windows emulators...

    Haven't tried vista, and yeah windows has its problems, but its not 1991 anymore so no linux for me.

    I wouldn't have anything against mac if it werent so trendy...thats the only reason people have them nowadays. Apple likes to use inferior hardware (in ipods at least) and its goods are way too expensive

    You hit some nails on the head. Not only is the hardware expensive it is pretty much monopolized. While OSX has some better UIs than Windows, it lacks in other areas such as gaming.
