Vista MSPaint Pasting Saving Issue

,----[ Quote ]
| After performing some research on this issue, it is apparent that other users
| are having the same problem. Microsoft has even indicated a knowledge of the
| problem, but most of the situations or resolutions are not for this problem,
| so we suspect this is the first identification of this specific issue.

Even after ~15 years of paint, it's still suffering from significant bugs. It's
_such a small (and useless) program_. It's a good example of the low quality
of software from Microsoft.

Vista 'resume' bug plagues laptop users

| situation, Microsoft representatives told me that they had no information to
| share at this time. Until they do, users are left to experiment with one of

Vista sends 49,693 page print job to printer

,----[ Quote ]
| Well obviously I didn't intend for this to happen. I chose file->print

| it printed the one page I requested, but when I went to the printer
| in the next room, I discovered it was spewing out pages with nothing
| but the header and footer from Firefox. Great work, Microsoft. Or
| maybe it is Firefox's fault? Who the hell knows.

Windows Vista's Hideous Wakeup Support

,----[ Quote ]
| One thing we just can't wrap our mind about is the terrible,
| broken, and completely pitiful support for waking Vista up from
| a Deep Sleep or hibernation.' Any time you attempt to wake Vista
| up from Hibernation or "Deep Sleep" (S3-induced sleep mode), it
| dies. It's either a BSOD, or a driver error, or a broken network,
| no DWM, lack of sound... the list goes on, and on. So much for an
| operating system to "power" the future! (No pun intended!) That's
| with properly-signed drivers and no buggy software on
| multiple PCs...

Just One Question For Vista: Does It Simply Work -- Like An Apple?

,----[ Quote ]
| Jim Allchin responds over on his blog regarding a recent news report
| quoting him as saying that he would have bought a Mac if he weren't
| working for Microsoft in an email to Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates.
|
| [...]
|
| So the challenge for Microsoft, and in some ways to an even larger
| extent Allchin himself personally, is to ship Vista in a state that
| is as bug free as the Mac.
|
| Vista is Allchin's final legacy at Microsoft. After a long successful
| career this is his last hurah and in order to be successful it simply
| must be perfect.

Life with Vista - Is this dogfood really for the dogs?

| I'm an absolute freak when it comes to .NET technologies. My blog

| it on every Vista-capable machine I had in my possession. I've
| been using Vista for several weeks now and I've come to a couple
| of conclusions that I think might startle and shock some of you.

Vista... Don't Try to Copy and Paste

| 0x800705AD means the user tried to COPY AND PASTE. Are you ****ting

| let's check that I have enough disk space:
|
| Ok, now by my calculations 413 MBs < 22.8 GBs. I can normally
| figure out almost any computer related problem.
