    A couple of weeks ago, I was very unhappy with Vista.
    In fairness, I'll say I have it running much better now and am
    beginning to like it.

    Uninstalling NIS, [Norton Internet Security], made a huge change
    to the usability and performance of this OS. The next thing was
    to ramp up to 1.5 gig of RAM, that also made quite a perceptible
    difference, seen immediately in startup time.

    I was able to make Regsupremepro work with the assistance of
    Macecraft telling me that I had to run it as admin. I've not
    really found other software I have running on XP pro that doesn't
    run on Vista.

    I'll even note the lack of the usually overwhelming
    vulnerabilities usually found in Secunia's newsletters the past
    two issues.

    It was looking grim at first, and I really think MS ought to pull
    Symantec off these machines if they don't want this OS to take
    such a bad rap. Avast and Nod32 both work very well on
    Vista, and I've even found the windows firewall to serve my
    purposes best for now. ZA sure partner with it well.

    So? You can paint up a 60 year old street walker and make her look like
    something you might spend the night with if you were drunk enough.
