A few housekeeping things going on here. Lots of trimming and simplification.
On another note. I opened up my first Vista machine yesterday. The system looks pretty good, with spitting image Mac widgets on the sidebar. But what gets me about Vista is the four-tier system. My mother-in-law, who wanted a basic machine, received the Basic Vista version. But this is a symptom of something, bloat perhaps on the higher end premium system. Even Basic started up slow and ungainly and I’m not sure why.
Why can’t an operating system just be that? Nevertheless, I’m running out of room to be worrying about that sort of thing.
