What is the pros and cons of Windows Vista?


Some of the things I like about Windows Vista; 

Is the Parent control feature , the parent opens a separate child account and from there can track what the child is up to.

It also has a changed desktop which is refreshing and the 256*256 resolution icons which are amazing. 

Vista has a restore point for your files as you work, so you can back up the older documents you might have deleted earlier.

The vista security feature helps protect your PC from unwanted software's.

Vista can find information faster, quicker, easier, simpler and make it more flexible for your day to day use.

Problem with vista is that it doesn't have photos or word editing program.

It's hard to install.

Confusing  to use something.

 Many programs don't work with Vista.
