lol this girl i know...well she bought it and im like have fun with all the bugs with it and getting hacked. shes like "i cant because i got norton internet security 2007" and then i started an hour long argument with her about why norton sucks and why you shouldn't use it and then shes like "well the guy at best buy said it was the best"

lol

vista is fine as long as you backup your important stuff just incase something happens

and does anyone know if vista has a boot screen yet?
