To be honest I'm not particularly enthused about Windows Vista at all, but I have to have it for two reasons:
* comes with the laptop
* will have to develop for it sooner or later.
I considered Vista Ultimate for about 30 seconds, then saw this and decided not to bother.

I spent the other 15 minutes setting up GRUB to boot into good old runlevel 2 so I could just arbitrarily boot into the CLI or the GUI if I wanted to, except that good-old Ubuntu gave me the "fuck-you" salute no matter what runlevel I put it on.
Then, joy upon joy, I find out that Ubuntu completely ignores whatever runlevel you set it to boot into!
Thank God for Ubuntu, without it I might have actually spent that half-hour doing something productive!
Fuck you Ubuntu.

OH HO HO ISN'T THAT CLEVER?
Shit, I have had the extreme displeasure of having to fuck with SourceSafe via SourceOffsite which, let me tell you friends, after having used Subversion is like being fucked with a rusty butterknife.
There is simply no other way to describe the sheer agony of having to use this tool.
Do you know that its possible to do a project-wide diff and see all of the project files not in the repository, and YET THERE IS NO WAY TO ADD THEM FROM THIS VERY INTERFACE?
God, the fucking SAVAGERY OF THIS APPLICATION IS IMPOSSIBLE.
Just using it makes me feel like I've been blown back to the stone age of computing.
Oh, god, file locks. File locks. I can't EDIT this file because someone else MIGHT BE using it -- MIGHT BE. They might have locked it just because they weren't sure if they might need to edit the file, so they locked it anyway just in case.
It's like REAL LIFE THREADING DEADLOCKS.
Thank God for Subversion and TortoiseSVN.
