My Vista froze...

After just 2 days of playing around with Vista, I finally got my first experience of Windows Vista freezing (can't say it crashed and using the term 'hung' seems a bit weird) on me. I guess with every new version of Windows, I look forward to my first Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD), my first 'illegal operation', my first crash, etc...

What did I do over the past 2 days? Nothing really major, really. No registry hacking. No running of 1000+ applications.

All I did was... Installed FireFox (see sidebar for download link), installed FireFTP, removed Microsoft Works, removed McAfee, installed AVG and the one that caused the freezing up of Windows Vista - installed Microsoft Office 2003. But I have to make it clear, Office 2003 did not really cause it. So happened that I was installing MS Office 2003 when it happened. MS Office 2003 works fine on Vista.

Ya I still think I'm going to forego the Vista experience.

ya... i think if you can do with XP, just stick to it. Vista is not really worth it. Same specifications on a notebook and you can notice the one running vista is really slower.

One of my suppliers notebook uses Vista and it projected red screen.

Not sure whether the OS is incompatible with some hardwares, but I'll stick to XP Pro.
