It’s happened again. Yet another hard reset of Vista and I’ve lost data. This never happened to me in Windows XP. After every running applications stopped responding and Explorer froze I hard reset the machine after waiting 5+ minutes for it to respond. I’ve since lost all of my Firefox browser settings, layout, history, proxy etc. as well as the icon layout on my Windows desktop, my taskbar positioning and who knows what else.
A number of my friends have given up on Vista and a few people here at Falafel have ongoing Vista issues. I’ve got it dialed way back to conserve on battery and memory on my MacBook Pro but I often wonder how much better Windows XP would work?
