I’ve been playing around with Windows Vista at work. What a pile of shit! Microsoft has ruined what they finally got right – a working operating system (in the form of Windows XP).

One of the most annoying aspects of Vista is the fact they have played around with all the settings and functions; moving them from their traditional locations, and placing them in strange new places. Never get Bill Gates to tidy your house – you’ll find your toilet roll in the freezer, bottles of milk in the oven and ice cream thawing out nicely in the airing cupboard.

Then there is the matter of software compatibility. You can understand to a degree why some third party software may not be compatible, but what I found really enraging is the fact that applications like Exchange Management Tools 2003 do not function on Vista. The cynical man in me would say that this is Microsoft’s sneaky way of forcing network administrators to purchase the upcoming Exchange 2007. However, as this is yet to be released, how are you supposed to run an effective Active Directory on a Vista workstation?

I do like XP, and fully intend to keep it for as long as possible – i.e. when they stop supporting it, which at this rate will probably be October 2007! Grrr…

Why can’t Bill Gates just leave things alone? If he had scab on his arm, he would pick and pick at it until it became gangrenous. You may have a lot of money Bill, but you sure as Hell can’t leave things as they are!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
