I got my new computer from Dell because I needed it quickly and relatively inexpensively. It came with Windows Vista and I love it. The menus are awesome, the color schemes are attractive, and it's a lot easier to get used to than XP was, even though it's nothing like XP.
I only have a few complaints:
1. When I open folders I like to see everything in that folder in list form. With Vista, the default is to have the items listed with an icon. When I discovered this I immediately changed the default to what I like, only I then have to open each folder three or four separate times and change the view to "list" before it takes effect. That's slightly irritating.
2. I cannot open WebCT with Firefox. WebCT is the tool by which UTD locates all of their class websites in one convenient location. I can only open WebCT with Internet Explorer because it apparently makes Firefox's head explode.
3. Internet Explorer is not working right now, and in fact, hasn't all day. I've been trying to log into WebCT all day but it won't go past the IE home page. Everything freezes and that hourglass mocks me with it's never-ending rotations. It even pops up a little friendly box that says, "Internet Explorer is not responding. Microsoft is looking for a solution to this problem."
Well, I have a solution to this problem. DON'T SUCK. With a lot less sucking there would be a lot more IE actually working. How hard is it to not suck? Bill Gates, you have more money than God and you still haven't found a way to stop sucking? Seriously? Because dude, I'd look into that if I were you. YOU ARE MICROSOFT. You cornered the market on this technology! You really can't afford to suck this much. You're pissing me off and making me wish I would've just sprung the extra cash for a Mac.
