Vista: Oops I did it again!


After laughing at my co-worker Daniel for months on his Vista's related sufferings: Man, I told you! Ha! That's vista! There you go! ha! ...

Now, it's my turn, I knew it! I knew it!! but still couldn't help it but ended up getting my new Sony notebook with Vista and voila! It even laughs at myself telling me: "Take a deep breath, so and so is not working". My Outlook 2007 is still not responding since I started the computer early this morning, I can't believe it, I can't kill the b...!! End Task, end process, close app, shutdown ... I didn't try a hammer yet, but nothing seems to work. It drives me crazy.

I'll say on my defense that I didn't have much of a choice because of GeneXus and Visual Studio (didn't feel comfortable enough on remote desktopp-ing these two and wanted one unique op sys) and in Vista's defense that it has a lot nice little tools. Especially one diagnostic tool that seems to realize the problem I'm having is because it can't handle to come back from sleep in relation with my verizon modem and it suggests that I call Microsoft to get a fix (not to download a fix, to call a phone number to get a fix, haven't done it yet). Otherwise I might need to switch my Verizon subscription to Cingular which is built-in.
