    Can't open the link in FireFox. Safari works tho. Very funny indeed. Anyone notice when he says V for Vista a subliminal message shows up? :p :p

    Exactly what i'm searching for now, that was probably the most concise rinse of Windows I've seen for a long time...

    There is PodTube which can be used with Safari. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work in the Uni. I'll try again at home.

    Oh man, I know this is a light-hearted thread but - one of our people (I'm in a university IT department) just installed Vista off of MSDN and has had MAJOR headaches with it. Drivers don't work and/or are unavailable, remote desktop is flaky, simple things like Windows shares are no longer simple... I could come up with a dozen more items, easy.

    This thing should NOT have been released. Microsoft gets grief, often deservedly, for releasing software that's not quite ready; but this really should be more of an early beta than a released product.

    every major windows had several SPs before it became stable. its expected for Vista too.

    driver problem, yeah, it has to improve through time, afterall, windows is not bundled with certain hardwares.

    releasing or not isn't a issue, apple released OS 10.0, buggy enough that they had to release 10.1 several months after that. and I doubt released Vista is that "beta" as you may think, problem you mentioned seems have more to do with hardware than software itself.
