I finally took Vista off of my laptop last week. While my main computer is a Mac, I’d been attempting to use Vista since February on my secondary laptop to no avail. After several months of heartache, I still had no sound. And, I know I’m not the only one as my post on Vista sound (back when I was beta-testing it in October) still gets hundreds of hits via Google per day. …maybe I should monetize that post. 😉
Anyway, I was wondering, is there anyone out there who is using Vista with satisfactory results? I know that EVERYONE I talk to who has used Vista on their own machines tells me that it performs like a Beta software. I know that there were no changes, that I noticed, from the beta test to the finished product.
What does this mean? Well, for one, I can’t imagine that Microsoft actually RELEASED a piece of software to compete with XP and OS X, that just does not work. It seems to be a case of shooting themselves in the foot. I should state for the record that I am a big MS fanboi, with 3 XBoxes, 2 Xbox 360s and a Zune (yes, a Zune). I have no beef with most other stuff that MS has done, and have no grudge against them. Shoot, we even own Microsoft stock!
I just can’t believe that they actually released this software. I’ve never been one to call for someone’s job (note all my previous posts are really, really nice), but were I in management, anyone with even ‘manager’ in their name on that team would be gone now. I just can’t fathom the strategy here… Why are they not even trying to get more updates or fixes out there?
Anyone with a clue, please clue me in.
