Scotland is in a position in Europe where the Britz have compared us to Bavaria, ie a region, not a nation and also that we speak engerlish and are not differant from engerland....... I ve had to put a few people right in Germany bout this.

notice the shortcut tinyurls were having problems from Windows mail. Never had that before on OE. Perhaps it is yet another new 'feature' of Vista (huch spit). However it may be a more general problem maybe even at the tinyurl site, so best to use the full urls in emails from now on.

Is it? Good effing grief! Will that mean, if I'm using XP, that would be the first time in my life that I would, (however temporarily), be actually using the current version of software?

Naw, cannae be true. But, should such a miracle happen, then all things are then possible! Hell, independence by next week, at that rate. World peace to break out only slightly later. :smile: Even jam today!

I got a system with it. A lot of folk get p'd off with it, for various reasons. XP is still in the running. Vista's proven too unpopular and is due for the boot.

So, really, how is Microsoft gonnae pass that one off? Are they really gonnae send out press releases saying "Oops, we made a bit of a mistook here" or what? Or just something like, "we're going to make it even bigger and better"? Bit of a tangent, I only ever heard bad things about Windows 2000 and Windows ME, but I didn't much care 'cos I was using older stuff anyway. So if they DID get it badly wrong there, is Vista really another muck-up?

Ach, no matter, I suppose it is a bit dangerously off a very important topic anyway.

Vista is crap. I read in one Accountants newsletter that Vista has so many bugs that it will cost members money in lost down time. The general advice is stick with Window XP Pro service pack 3. Which is what I am on. Vista is an ill fated attempt to mimic the Mac OS-X which is light years ahead of any Microshite product. If only the tax and accounting software suppliers made their software for the Mac...Sigh............

To be fair, Microsoft more or less forced Vista on us. I'm currently pissed off because no MS systems will access files over five years old. We're being held hostage by a company.

In terms of research and public consultation, yes.

Niall provides a good summary above - people in his line of work have no choice but to be heavily reliant on computers.

I don't know whether it's five years, or slightly more, but my computer refuses to open some Word files, or to open help files for certain programmes as they predate '03/'04.

Definitely, but you'd better watch it, because of this built in obsolescence (sp?) - I'm against it. I think people should be able to access programmes from the 1960s, if they still have the files!!!
