Its really cool to have transparency all over the screen, kinda hifi and sexy. Its just a notepad but we use it very often, right. It fits in Windows Vista and Windows 7 like a charm and there is just a exe file, no need to install it.

PluggedIn: Vista’s growing pains leave room for XP


 Vista’s growing pains, leave room for XP 


“Microsoft Windows Vista software sit on display at a store in New York January 30, 2007. Problems are part of the normal growing pains that come with every major upgrade to the Windows operating system. To ease those pains, some consumers are seeking out machines equipped with the more compatible Windows XP. ” -REUTERS/Shannon Stapleton

Microsoft says most people using Vista are pleased with it and that nearly all software and hardware is compatible.

Craig Rabe, owner of the Computer Cafe, an independent computer store in Arlington, Massachusetts, says he received so many complaints about Vista after it was launched in February that he stopped selling machines loaded with the software.

“People came back and said, ‘Please, will you take this off and replace it with XP,” he said.

Microsoft says it has put a lot of effort into working with other companies to solve any problems.

“There are some products that don’t work with it,” said Windows group product manager Justin Jed. “But … the data shows louder than the anecdotes that people are having a great experience with Windows Vista.”

What’s more, about 96 percent of all printers, keyboards, mice, scanners and other devices in use are compatible with Vista, as are about 2,000 software programs, including 49 of the current 50 best-selling retail titles, he says.

Microsoft declined to comment on specific problems.The Windows User Group says Vista is an “awesome” system and all of its employees use it. But the company, which provides technical advice on Windows and runs online communities, cautions that the switch can be uncomfortable.

“We are going after the ones that impact the most customers,” Jed said. “Obviously you cannot be all things to all people.” –By Jim Finkle

Thus we cant judge whats should be done on these circumstance, but we are safe untill XP is alive…….
