That crack fact just bolsters the recommendation we've given customers, along with the oppressive DRM, that they should never install Vista; it is better to continue to use XP Pro and use Linux. When new computers are needed we have recommended custom builds and Linux installed on them. Look, the USA is coming around to the climate shift and what is needed. The surface effects are not needed; I configure for efficiency no matter the ram. I recommend the same for home and work. Vista is not good for media unless you're willing to allow the content producers to control your computer. My network has two Macs, one of them a relic of old, two Windows, 98SE and XP Pro, and soon to have a Linux machine.
It is not a grand crusade for me, for us; it is simply that we do not need Microsoft anymore, and neither do you or any save the technological crippled. The latter is shrinking group.
I wanted a Vista without the graphical effects and DRM. I just wanted better security. Thanks for opensource. But one day some enterprising capitalist will build a proprietary OS from scratch that runs on IBM compatibles which is smaller, stabler, and more secure. It may be named OS X. Hmmm
