This is my 2nd, i think attempt to run Vista (x64). It installed fine. Then the trouble appeared for the most trivial, apparently things... - Of course i disabled transparencies and most virual effects, since the snappiness of XP was making me cry. Now it's ok. - I didn't understand who thought that the new control panel and the default slideshow visualization mode (fade, which fits to screen) , is better than XP, but anyway... Googling i found there are people who think their photos were damaged or became "blurry"... Poor bastards. - The FOLDERS!!! The FOLDERS!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, is there a way to have plain, old fashioned yellow folders, and have the preview only for video and image files? Or must i go to each and every folder that has images or videos and customize only that to show previews - The preview itself... Why is the preview in Vista soooooo slooooooow compared to XP With XP a folder with images loads the previews in no time. With Vista takes for ever. - The TASK BAR!!! Why isn't there a slim version too, like it was the "Royal" Theme in XP I hate the "fat" Vista taskbar. Found a workaround, will try it later. - Ingenious adding a "delete" option in the right click menu of the recycle bin. Internet is full of people asking help because "I deleted my recycle bin". - The START---ALL Programs. Why do i get to see the program folders instead of the executables Whose brilliant idea was that In order to launch an application you have to open the folder and click the .exe? I MUST be missing something! - At least they have nice colours for the taskbar and windows now. It's not os bad as an OS. But IMHO they made some things worse and more complicated. If someone knows the answer for the folders question, please reply.
