Vista is about the worst OS on the market! At at times, I would love to put my hands around microsoft's throat and choke the life out of it! Do they think every Jack and Joe in the world is filthy rich beyond obcenity that they can afford to rush out and buy hardware that is Vista-Friendly, digitally signed with hardware drivers by the "Old-boy" network all greasing each other's palms? I think not! This is perhaps why other companies regarding upgrading device drivers have to step in to supply the necessary drivers to make one's system work again, whilst microsoft sit back on their laurels with an erect middle finger pointed at the rest of the world! Microsoft should be taken to court again and fined several billion dollars per day for their sheer arrogance! Then we have to contend with the new culture of, so-called, free, instant driver download sites all operating their individual "Device Detective" download proggy, which finds all your wanted drivers, recommends an instant download for which they want money...whatever happend to the phrase...free? All designed to frustrate you and have you tearing your hair out as well as your wallet.......free means.......free! The trades description act should apply here!
