I have always respected Microsoft and as a writer I use a Windows computer every day. Last year I bought a MAC. Initially, I was afraid of the MAC because of unfamiliarity but I am getting used to it and use it more often now. Unfortunately, there are some programs which are not yet written for the MAC and this limits use of them.
I have been very happy with my Windows XP. Last year I bought a smaller computer so I could travel and write without having to lug around a heavier Laptop and it came with Windows Vista. What piece of s*** Vista is. I never cease to be amazed at how and why Microsoft would replace XP with Vista. XP was so easy to operate. Vista is not an improvement at all. Unfortunately, when Microsoft comes out with a new operating system, it is put in all new computers and buyers have no choice but to buy it. I do know why these companies come up with a new and improved version of something which works just fine. It is to make money. All the software companies do the same thing. With each new version of Quickbook and similar software programs, the newer version is changed so little that I opt to update only every 5 or so years and not every time a new version is published.
A great advantage of the MAC is that it is not susceptible to worms and viruses. I believe this might be due to MAC afficionados writing viruses to attack Windows-based computers [sic]!
Just want to share my frustration in this Blog.

My advice is not to throw away your XP computer and resist buying a Vista based computer until you really have to.

Don't blame Microsoft...blame the o/e...operator error. I have had no problems with my Vista.

Dear Anonymous: Your sarcasm gives you away. I was in an internet place yesterday here in Panama City. Four people there were complaining about Vista -- never heard so many complaints about XP. My suggestion is that you talk to others and get a feel of what is going on in the world. I can operate Vista, but it surely is not as easy as XP -- the only point I was trying to make.
Enjoy your Vista. For me, I am planning to switch entirely to MAC.
