Last week Leandra bought a new notebook… of course, by default it cames with Windows, moreover, the Vista version.
It seems almost impossible to get into this new operating system.
- One is used to use a bunch of different programs in, let’s say XP… but they don’t work in this new plataform. Ex.: Real Audio. Furthermore, WMP is not allowed to play such a format.
- If you wanna install a free antivirus… that’s an Odyssey (at least for me).
- Vista is felt to be slower than its antecedent XP.
- Among others…
But at the end I could install (after a lot of work) AVAST’s antivirus, JAVA, MIKTEX, TEXMAKER, GV, and certain programs I use frequently.
Nevertheless, Vista has an advantage over XP, it has all the needed installation `codex’ for the printers, USB, et cetera.
