I'm not "upgrading" to Windows 7. I've barely reached the point where I 
can tolerate Vista.

Due to my background, i.e. where I came from into computing, how I got 
started, I do find Windows slightly more congenial than Mac, but that 
don't mean I like it.

Micro$oft never seems to have understood the idea of "if it ain't broke, 
don't fix it." They, in fact, seem sometimes actively perverse, where 
they "break" things that worked just fine.

It almost seems like it's an intentional introduction of forced 
incompatibility with previous versions. I thought they'd finally got it 
mostly right with XP, but it seems like every thing they did get right 
with XP, they went and changed in Vista.

Wouldn't be a problem if it only affected Micro$oft's own software, but 
it screws around other things I need to use.
