I used to work for a ISP customer service. Vista was a nightmare of a call. Personally i think its a terrible OS, we went through hell with trying to make it work properly connecting online. Although this was on its first release, i still dislike it for the fact it is a complete forgery of Mac OSX.
I'm a user of macintosh, and i personally dislike windows generally, but vista to me, is a very over simplified, and very glitchy operating system.
Don't get me wrong, i also have a windows XP machine here. But vista is in its early days, and in typical microsoft fashion, it will have lots of service pack releases before its useable.
(Another good note about vista... I worked in a radio station over the last few months, and they were sponsored by Dell, who gave us 7 new Desktops runing Vista. the radio station was due to go on air on 20th july online, and streamed to a fm transmitter a few buildings away. We spent 3 weeks trying to fix our problem for not being able to transmit. and after calling out technicians to the network cablings, and everything, I decided to plug in a freinds windows XP laptop that was sitting nearby. and it worked.)
We called out professionals to fix the issue too, and teh whole time it was the windows vista computers causing the issue. Turns out it liked to austomatically determine the connections even based on its cache. (as in, we pinged our router, got all packets back. then unplugged the router, pinged it again, and got all hosts back....
No-one could fingure it out. - neither could dell. 7 machines! all the same!
