Things i hate about Vista

This blog entry will focus on all the things that i hate about vista.

1 When copying and pasting folder with large amount of files EG 100 000 from one USB drive to an other a pop up dialog appears saying that there is not enough memory to perform the operation after some times.

2 Explorer.exe process still crashing no improvement since Windows XP

3 Thumbnail view of images and video in explorer are not working so use Adobe Bridge :)

4 Dual screen mode is just wrong and it is not possible to consistently run vista on a laptop with a broken screen for instance using only the external connector. If you want to connect your laptop running vista to an LCD TV through the VGA external connector of your laptop and then later on if you unplug the VGA cable because you want either to use the TV with an other laptop or simply put the laptop to sleep then next time you turn the laptop on after plugging the VGA connector vista will forget that you want your TV as the primary screen. The log in window will show up all the time on the laptop screen. It should be expected to use the last settings which is also the most used settings. It will reset to default settings which is just wrong. On the other hand all windows from the operating OS will open on the wrong screen the secondary screen. Same for control panel settings, if you open control panel on one screen (external screen) and then open the display settings the dialog will open on the wrong screen the "primary" laptop screen.

5 .... coming soon
