Vista: Apparently, Explorer is optional

Windows Vista loves to issue a daily reminder of why it sucks. Today’s incident: I’m in the process of creating a folder when the system decides to pop up one of those ‘set location’ boxes for the wireless network in the Qantas Club. As well as being largely futile, this manages to crash Explorer entirely. Given that Explorer has existed in this form since Windows 95, you’d think Microsoft could have got it right by now. Or perhaps not.

Creating folders: apparently an unreasonable request for a modern operating system

(Footnote: And now I have to reboot. Oh, what a surprise.)
