Hey, don't hate.

I tried the whole Linux thing. It'* useless to me. I can do everything I need with Windows. The only reason I'll use Linux is just to satisfy my geek side and learn a thing or two about it. Same thing with Apple.

I have found nothing else that is as functional to me as MS Windows and Office.

The features of Open Office hardly compare to O2k7.

This is interesting. I am currently looking for a new computer. I am a bit concerned with getting one with VIst because of its newness. I am having ahard time geting on still with XP though. Still trying to figure out what to do.
I am definitely a Windows guy, but I do have had problems with IE 7 myself.

One thing I have found that I don't like about Vista. I do some paper modeling, which involves having several pictures/PDFs open at the same time. I have yet to have Vista'* "Group similar taskbar buttons" actually group them. And there are no powertoys yet to tweak this feature...

One downside I am noticing is that the sidebar does not want to refresh all the time. I have my Outlook Tasks and Calendar on it, and when I update to a new task or make a change, it does not update right away. Maybe there'* some registry tweaks to this?

I also turned UAC off. That'* just plain annoying. I'm sure it'* great for the click-happy folk, but I don't need it.

In all actuality, XP SP2 works fine for me, and I can always put a nice skin over it to make it look like Vista ... or even OS/X . I got it for free though, and I have a ton of storage space, so I'll be playing with this for a while.

You need to get to the User Accounts page. Then you will see a link to get to security settings. From there you will have the option to turn it off. Then reboot.
