After a few near-miss lightning strikes, Windows XP decided that I have 2.2Gb of registry.
Nope. XP for me, thanks. The Vista DVD is unopened, it was a gift. I’d really like to return it to MS and ask for a downgrade to XP, just to make the point. Gonna investigate the possibility.
Cries of “Microsoft hater” will fall on deaf ears: I’m a Linux guy who chooses to run XP as my desktop, laptop and home OS. Vista puts me a step closer to buying a Mac or putting one of these new fangled Linux distros on my desktop – I was able to run my Windows XP install under VMWare via Ubuntu “Live” CD (no installation) when I couldn’t get XP to boot at first back there.
