Oh All Mighty Microsoft…

I’m on a roll (thanks to The Register), another post that will make you check your calendar to see if it’s April 1st! If you are thinking of upgrading downgrading to Vista, read this:

"Seven weeks ago, when we first reported Vista was causing many machines to stall indefinitely while deleting, copying and moving files, we were sure the problem was caused by a bug that would be fixed relatively quickly. After all, Vista is Microsoft’s flagship product. It’s also an operating system. And everyone knows deleting, copying and moving files are among the most basic tasks any operating system can set out to do."

It may be the DRM infection causing this some say, I must add. I wouldn’t be surprised.

  1. More unbelievable news:
    Vista bug puts a snag in network traffic when music is playing
    http://www.engadget.com/2007/08/28/vista-bug-puts-a-snag-in-network-traffic-when-music-is-playing/
    “It looks like Vista users that have noticed a slowdown in network traffic while they were playing music weren’t imagining things, as Windows expert Mark Russinovich has reportedly confirmed that such a bug does indeed exist.”
    “Russinovich says he found that resulted in a 6 percent throughput on a 1Gb network with Windows Media Player playing, as opposed to a 20 percent throughput without it running. No word on a fix just yet but, as PC World points out, you may want to halt the tunes if you’re planning on doing a lot of copying.”
