Reasons to hate Vista...

One of the things happening at work this summer is that a computer management company takes over our IT and will be installing new computers. All of which, unfortunately, have Vista as their operating system.

And it turns out that several bits of software won't run on Vista, even in compatibility mode, including some of our data-logging programs and the software for some extremely cheap radiation sensors. The latter, incidentally, runs perfectly under Windows 7, which is why they're not working on a replacement.

So it goes. At least for the next year or so, at which point they will hopefully roll out Windows 7 instead.
