Peter Griffin’s blog on Vista, remninds me to share my own experiences. The poor bastard tried running it on 512 MB memory. I’ve got it running on a new PC nicely with 2 GB memory. My rule of thumb is to always double the default amount of memory a new machine comes with.
So far Vista has been pretty good. Minor things like showing the speed of a file copy/move and no of files remaining are useful. The whole look/feel is good also. Have had problems with printer drivers though. A lot of products are not yet ready for Vista so rushing in can backfire.
But while overall I like Vista, can I just say how much I hate Office 2007. Nothing is where it should be. It’s attempts to be helpful are frustrating to say the least. After 12+ years of a standard look and feel to Office producsts, that is all gone. I can’t do half of what I used to be able to do because I can’t find the effing commands.
Please can someone out there tell me there is a button you can push to make Office 2007 appear like Office 2003? That would be a life saver.
Oh and don’t even start me off on the new file formats. Grrrr.
I hate Office 2007 so much I’ll probably put off getting a new laptop just to avoid having to migrate to Office 2007.Tags: Internet, Reviews
