I do so get tired of this kind of message.
For one, people made all the same arguments about XP when it first launched. It's different, it's slow, it sucks, etc, etc. Since XP has been with us for the better part of 10 years now, people have had time to get used to it and systems have had time to catch up with the rather high demands of the Luna UI system... From the standpoint of integrated graphics circa 2001.
Most of your incoherent rant really sounds like it's just user error, starting with buying a used HP system.
But in the end, you really need to ask yourself why anyone out there really cares about your opinion. Not trying to be mean or rude, just honest. Just because I can put up a blog doesn't mean people are going to be hanging on my every word. Who am I that you, or anyone else out there in Internet land, should give a flying crap what I think or say?
Anyway, I'd say your problem is less about Vista and more that you are afraid of change. If you accept that Vista is going to do things differently, it's not that bad. It's not that great either, but it occupies that happy middle area of mediocrity. Some things are better, some things are worse, but mostly it's just different. If Microsoft planned to stick it out with Vista as long as they did with XP, by the time Windows 7 came along you'd be hearing the same tired arguments all over again. It's slow, it does things differently, it sucks, etc.
Life is about change - learning to cope with and adapt to changes that occur both to you and your surroundings. You have a choice when you get down to it. You can whine and pout like a 4 year old, or you can just accept that things change and you need to change with them. Whining and pouting won't stop the world from changing either, it just makes it that much harder to adapt.
WHOEVER designed vista musta been high on drugs! i have recently got a a mediacenter p.c on ebay a h.p m8300f with vista and vista is an absolutely stupid oprating system! x.p which i still have on 2 other p.c.s
is so great! and easy to use! vista asks for conformatoin on everything you do! i donload pics and they don,t show up as pics! look like a monitor pic! and when i download anything else it does,nt automatically go to my desktop where i would want it to go! i gotta search for everything i download! it really is a ******** operating system! in my opinion! it's a joke! but the p.c is awesome a 640gb H.P AMD ath X-2 m8300f 6000 3.0 gigs 3gb ram AND and an awesome price it is like brand new! was a demo! i love it but not the vista! yuk!
