OK, I was just provoked into writing a few words about Windows Vista, as I got my second bluescreen of the day. I haven’t had so many BSODs in such a short time since Windows XP SP1… or was it Windows 2000?
Anyway – it bluescreened on me just now when I tried to patch Company of Heroes, and earlier I am guessing that it was because of Realtek sound control panel application. As far as I know, both of these should be Vista compatible. Oh well.
My main conclusions on Vista at this point:
– It is unstable
– OS X feels, works and looks a lot better
– Once it is actually stable (Service Pack 1?), it will be like XP with a fancy skin and more pre-installed applications, which is probably mostly a good thing. And it should be more spyware-proof than XP is now, which is good.
(Of course, the lesson here is – don’t bother, get a Mac…)
