Okay, I am embarrassed to say that I spent some good money on Vista, a beta release still, to this day. If it is not one issue, it is another, but the major nag this operating system has induced on me is the horrendously inconsistent network connections. For weeks, I had to constantly repair my connection just to log on to the net. Then a new driver came out (months later) and the problems seemed to go away. I mean, really an OS's least priority should be internet connectivity in this day and age, right? Then this past week. Wham. Back to square one. Can't connect again. I re-installed the drives. Flushed my dns. Winsock reset. Pretty much a full and valiant effort to resolve this. Microsoft should be thoroughly ashamed of itself to release this beta software to the public.
