Computer Angst

I've just about got my stuff moved over to my new computer but I'm leaving my old computer up for a while to make sure I've gotten everything off I need. I noticed while sitting here that I can barely hear my new computer even though it is currently sitting on top of the desk. The fan in my old computer sounds like a leaf blower compared to this one.
I'm still not convinced that I'm going to like Microsoft Vista. It's doing some squirrely things like change my screen resolution when I reboot. Not every time, but enough to make it annoying. It also throws up my dial-up network connection box as if I wanted to dial out while I'm surfing on my cable connection. What's the deal with that. If you've had a computer for a while and collected software that makes it do things like automated backups of your data, edit graphics, or record music be ready to upgrade software on all of those programs. So far it's going to cost me more than two hundred dollars just to get the functionality I had with my old computer. I'm a little miffed about that as you might imagine.
But I do like the fact that this computer uses less power and is quit as a whisper. On the bright side, I can make use of the old unit this autumn when the leaves begin to fall.
