Microsoft Vista helpfulness

Chris Pirillo notes exciting things about Vista. For example, you’ll need a fast 2 gig memory stick in addition to a new computer to run it at any decent speed. While some might be taken aback by this, Microsoft clearly believes that, for the privilege of running Vista, buying a new computer is hardly too much to ask.

Other helpful new features include no horizontal scroll bars in Explorer. Wow!

But wait, there’s more. If Vista crashes, you may get an error message saying Microsoft knows about the problem and is working on a fix. Don’t know about you, but I’m getting warm, fuzzy feelings thinking about how Vista will be looking out for me.

We look forward to future Microsoft enhancements, such as the new Error Message module that alerts you that your computer has been compromised by spyware, that a fix should arrive within just a few weeks, then offers condolences because you need to reformat.
