The big nothing

So, I was actually using Microsoft Windows for quite a while. My first windows was Windows/286 which was nothing like the current Windows, but it was okay somehow. Today I just realized that I haven’t really been using Windows on any of my own machines and even though Vista was released three months ago, I haven’t seen it yet.

It is sort of funny, but since switching to a Mac, I’ve been spending less time keeping the machine running – debugging, tweaking and doing other odd stuff – and more time doing actual fun work at the computer – like expanding my portfolio at istockphoto.

While Windows Vista seem to get a pretty nice reception from ordinary users (given their hardware is sufficient to run Vista), I’ve no officially realized, that to me, Windows Vista – despite the many, many years of development efforts Microsoft put into it – was the big nothing.
