Vista: I am not enjoying it so far. Seeing how much memory and system resources Aero takes up was staggering though. I've turned it off. Some things I just do not understand: Why have they changed where things are located.. when they've been there for many, many versions? Why have they hidden options that should be easy to access? Why are there 3 ways to turn off the computer in the same menu space?
Once I get my brain working again, I'll post full updates.
On the music front - Do yourself a favour and listen to Who's afraid of Detroit - Claude VonStroke. Is good. Beautiful, even. The rest of his album seems ok, I will withhold full judgement until I get hold of a copy.
