Most people say Vista is crap but I always figured that's because they were jealous of Bill Gate's billions. It turns out they were right!
Vista is horrible. The UAC dialogues do pop up all the time. You click on about any button and the screen flickers and goes dark except for the UAC dialogue.
The dialogues are stupid too. So far I've only seen the one where if you click on a button and it asks you "Did you just click on a button? Press cancel if this program started automatically." It's every third button that generates this dialogue. This is on a brand new Vaio without anything extra installed.
Vista automatically updates which is good, but then it also automatically reboots your computer when it finishes!
Also when you uninstall the AOL tool bar that makes Vista reboot. It doesn't ask you. It just reboots. You think probably I'm lying, but I'm not.
You know how all windows computers seem to have an expired copy of Norton on them? I always thought that was because idiots downloaded the trial version. I was wrong, they install nine almost expired applications including Norton at the factory.
What a load of absolute crap...
