well im not surprised, thats how business goes...i hate it, but im a business man too.

Its the third time ive gone back to vista, and this time its actually alright... so ill stick with it, unless something stupid if the sp1 doesnt do anything.

I know this is off topic, but Office 2007 was a good improvement, sure i hated it first but now i see the benefits.
I work on campus helping students with computer hw, and other stuff and its way easier and better....

What i dont get is that how did vista make soo much money? even for it being so buggy

I got a laptop from somebody that has an intel 4300 and 2 gigs of ram with vista. he wants me to install programs on it. after I messed with it, I told him I have to install the programs while drunk so that I wouldn't throw the slow arse POS into a wall
