How great is this Vista thing!

I’m trying to install Windows Vista on my new laptop. The core installation wasn’t that tedious but the fun began after I started to make it actually usable. After tens of restarting while installing the drivers, I made the mistake to update Windows. After downloading and installing the updates for about ten hours it wanted me to restart the computer again. Before shutting down it made some configuration about updates which took about 1 hour. Then the text on the screen changed to “Computer is shutting down” and it has been trying to shut down the computer for 1,5 hours. So my new computer has been in an unusable state for about 15 hours.

And the most frustrating part is that it does not show any progress bar or something, so I don’t know if it is stuck or still doing some tasks. I also have no idea when it is going to complete, 10 seconds, 10 minutes or 10 hours? Maybe 10 days? The cursor looks like it is doing something so I don’t shut it manually in case all my efforts are gonna fail and I should start all over again.

I’ll wait some more and if it is still not complete then I’ll install XP because it is like torture. Again, good job Microsoft!
