I am sure you have heard this a lot, but I have been very, no extremely patient with Vista and its many problems, but why does it forget my device drivers? I have had to install the drivers for my Dell x51V (Windows Mobil Device Center) no less than three times since last summer, and the drivers for my bluetooth the same amount of times. One day they are working great, the next nothing. When I reinstall the drivers, VISTA is happy again, until the next time.


Is there a cure for VISTA Alzheimer disease?


Let's face it, Windows 3.1 has had a better track record.


Now that Dell has dropped out of the Pocket PC market, I am very hesitant to do away with my Dell Pocket PC. I have a Motorola Razr V3 as well. Do you know of a supplier that will have a wireless device with the screen size of my Dell, and the capabilities of my Razr V3? I am not impressed with the iPhone and see it only as a gimmick, and I am not into the Blackberries either.


Until then they will have to pry my Dell from my cold dead hands. There just isn't anything on the market to replace it.
