Windows Vista

My dad got himself a new computer recently. Since he's a card-carrying neo-luddite, it naturally fell to me to set it up for him, which I did on Wednesday. It came with everything pre-installed, so it was just a case of taking out of boxes, attaching cables to the right places, and what have you.

It was, however, my first opportunity to have a brief play with Vista. It has a very different feel to it to other versions of windows, and I mostly hadn't a clue what was going on from the brief time I spent on it. I suspect this was just unfamiliarity, though, and won't judge it harshly on that. However, here is a statistic that seems telling:

I played around with it for well under an hour. During that time I still managed to get my first ever Vista BSoD. I feel so proud.

Vista seems to trigger previously hidden driver bugs by calling them differently from XP. There's a real shortage of stable drivers for it. I think the OS itself is pretty stable but I could be wrong. Not that that's any good if the drivers for your hardware aren't.
