I use Linux on my laptop, and Vista on my main desktop PC, I have no choice in this, as the sofware I use, only works in Windows. In the whole I am happy with Vista, I have had no major problems with it at all. I think people who bash vista just bash it for the sake of bashing it, and getting on the bandwagon. And those Mac Fucktards can naff off. If Microsoft had a say in the hardware, instead of having to develop for hundreds of pieces of hardware, and the millions of different configurations, it would of been a different story. Apple knows exactly what their software will be running on. (And I have a Mac, so no hate mail please)
However one thing that really irritates me is the lack of multiple desktops. If MS has such a great software development section, why can’t they do this very simple thing that has been in Unix and Linux since day 1?
There is a lot of freeware out there (MS even has it) that purports to provide multiple desktops, but none of that stuff works worth a flip.
In my everyday life I can have many windows open. It would be so much easier for me if I could have 2 or 4 desktops, say one for each section, such as my Web browser / email, and IDE on another. I think you get the picture.
When I origionally asked about this, it was “We would have to rewrite the entire Display and Desktop”
Well that was with XP, and they did rewrite those sections, but alas still no native multiple desktop support.
My Nvidia drivers can display multiple desktops, but why cant I have native support??
Come on MS, Sort it out……….
