Re: Vista!

Trust me Bruce, at the moment, Vista is fairly bugged. And, the 3d effects may be what the sighted community wants, but I still don't see a need to upgrade right away, more so if you can't see said visual effects. All it is is basicly XP service pack 3 made pretty. If you don't need to upgrade, then it's not practical to do so. And judging by what I've read, programs that are designed to work with Vista will still work with XP, so you're not losing much. The only significant changes are really being made behind the scenes, and your average computer user won't really care about them anyway.

Do you know that it's full of bugs? Do you know that the security
changes in Vista aren't what the public ahs been demanding? Do you know
that the visual changes being made aren't what your average computer
user wants? Sounds to me like you're making an awful lot of groundless
assumptions, unless you're in the loop more than the rest of us, in
which case I'd like to hear more.
