What Josh said is cent percent correct. Free software carries freedom to the user. So, don't wait for SP1, and try to install your favorite GNU/Linux distribution today.

Any legal action for a defective product???

It is now the end of Feb 2008 and no SP1. And no date for a fixed product. Just a lot of complaints. For past year a defective product has been sold on new machines.
Vista problems by sheraz — last modified 2007-10-09 12:04
I've never seen an operating system so unstable than vista, perhaps it is far more unstable than windows 98 when it was originally launched! No software seems to work smoothly in vista. If I click on any executable to install any software, it is subjected to window's built-in screeneing process, that sometime takes upto 2 minutes before the instal shield runs actually. It is so irritating and yes it happens on my genuine vista home premium that came with my latest 2Ghz 2GB hp pavillion dv6599...

The sad news is that even internet explorer stops respoding right in the miidle of browising when you opened multiple tabs and are seriously researching online! Nothing is recovered after you restart.

Yahoo messenger has problems, DAP has problem these often stop respeonding and i know its all due to vista.

Windows sidebar is another tension at startup it often hags resulting in delayed startup. And wehn windows is updating, the system is very slow till update is complete and we actually restart the system. REALLY windows vista is designed to 'reduce' and 'restrict' when we can do with our PC!

Yeah you can not save a con.jpg no matter where.
