The most annoying aspects of Windows Vista

Posted on February 20, 2007. Filed under: Vista, Windows |

PC World publishes a laundry list of irritants in Windows Vista, including the “anorexic” feed reader for the Sidebar and User Account Control (an official Lifehacker Vista pest):

“We often worry about Microsoft playing Big Brother, but now it’s playing Big Mother, attempting to protect you from your own rash impulses to run new software. Try to download a program, and Internet Explorer will block it. (“It’s for your own good. You can’t be too careful, you know. Who knows where that program has been!”) Unblock it, and IE will ask if you really, truly want to download the software. (“These programs can be dangerous, you know. I just don’t want you to get hurt.”)”

Other complaints include the slow and constantly-scanning Network Places area (yup) and Windows’ assumption you’ll only be storing your data in the Documents directory Vista set up for you (indeed).
