Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Impressions with Vista so far
Had it for 2 days.

User Access Control is the biggest crap ever. You simply cannot designate an older app as "safe" - they all must be signed for that. The POS asks your permission every time you run the program. This is obviously a grab at independent software developers, an attempt to collect a tax from them. I disabled it for now, but this POS is also needed to raise user privileges to admin w/o switching the user, and that is a useful thing. So for now I need to switch to admin user every time I install software.

The speed is OK with 2 GB. The new Aero thingy is really nothing to write home about. The programs I tried so far - my scanner, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Stronghold 2, Firefox, Thunderbird - all work. SH2 in fact works better than on XP.

Overall - greed getting in the way of progress, as is usual with MS.

New Spoke too fast :(
Photoshop Elements only works on the account where it was installed. Only PE 5.0 will have a patch to fix this, and I have PE 0.0 - the original,from 2001. Ouch.

New Re: Impressions with Vista so far
I found the same problems. I got a 60 day demo of Norton Internet Security 2007 for downloading Adobe Acrobat Reader 8.0 and I found it was a lot easier to turn off that Vista feature and let Norton handle security.

Anyway I heard Microsoft is being sued for those "Vista ready" PCs not being as ready as customers thought they were. I had a Vista ready desktop and I got lockup and driver issues, and I removed the Vista demo and went back to XP. If you install Vista without a CD Key you get like a 30 or 60 day demo. No need to activate but it will ask for a key when the demo expires.

Anyway a lot of people are upset that the features in Vista Home Premium and higher are not available due to hardware limitations in Vista ready PCs. That Microsoft should have said Vista Home Basic ready and Vista Home Premium ready for the different Vista ready PCs. I think there might be a lawsuit over that.
