poll: personal experience with vista

i have had vista since late march. i used to have xp.

vista has been okay for reading and sending e-mail.

but, it is incompatible with my $275 printer, which was less than a year old. getting the software to make it compatible cost almost the same as a compatible printer (which didn't do as many things). i got the new printer.

it is incompatible with my photo program. i am having to learn my way around a new program, which is supposed to be easy to learn, but which has drawbacks of its own.

i expect i will learn my way around the computer, but not easily. i was not very computer proficient before, and what little i knew is different here.
