Default What do you dislike about Vista?

We all know that Vista is a decent operating system, but most techies will tell you that there are some not-so-great things about it. What's YOUR problem with Vista? Note: If you don't have a problem with vista or you think it's doing ok, please don't post - this thread is for vista problems only.

Printing to a five year old lexmark printer. It's not MS's fault though.

i didnt find anything that i dislike about vista. I think its a pretty good OS if your computer can run it.
i guess the only thing i dont like about it is the FPS drop on games playing on DX10.
I heard that MS is going to release another OS in 2010.

XP would be as well if it didn't cache to the hard drive.

I dislike the fact that my computer's not good enough to justify and upgrade.

You could also revert the control panel and the start menu back to its original style. I'm just commenting on how it comes out of the box.

...and why would I disable Windows Update?
