Mickey on Vista
So we've established that Sister has a new Vista laptop... and one of the things we had to upgrade was not a printer...but a monitor because we wanted a wider screen. I was in the doghouse over the fact that I forgot to backup her pictures that she puts in her IM window ..... but tonight she hit me on IM and said....
.... I think she's getting the hang of Vista, don't you?
Five days up, Two UAC prompts while installing the Disney screensaver and what not. For those that want to install and think UAC is annoying... install the OS or buy the machine with Vista. Disable UAC while you are bringing the system up to 'baseline'. (In other words install all the crud and crap and uninstall all the Dell OEM crud and crap). Put UAC back on.
Some programs we've had to "run as XP sp2 in compatibility mode". But so far.... so good.
