I like it. The only problem I've had is that there is no driver for my
ancient scanner. So I hooked it up to my laptop, which runs Windows 2000.

Have you found anything in Vista that would make it a really compelling
choice of XP?

Vista seems a bit more robust in that when you do something stupid and
stall out a program, the computer locks up less and you don't have to do
a hard reboot.

Any software that locks up because of something the user did should be
discarded. It's junk and its programmer was an idiot.

Once again, Joe Groceryboy enters the fray with his broad based
opinions on all things idiotic. It's almost like Joe has a PhD in
Idiocy andIinformed Choice.

It's like if the end user doesn't read the manual, does something that
the computer can't do and it's the programmer's fault.

Tell me all you know about trapping for errors in software. I've got 30
seconds. That should be plenty.

I know that all errors can be trapped, unless the software isn't ready for
release yet.
