I'll fix that. My own experience of Vista is that, if you want to do
anything outside the basics, it's a dog. No doubt I'll learn ways
around its shortcomings, but I really have better things to do with my
time. I've turned off most of Vista's "features".
For the short term, I'm dual-booting Linux Mint (thank God for
systemrescuecd). Longer term, looking into multi-booting XP (if I can
free up a license).

Prejudices? No, just a modicum of knowledge & experience.
Thanks for the pointer to the Schofield article. The article itself is
tripe, but the comments are interesting.
