OT "Vista" is gonna have many people following the upgrade train again... 9992
I base mine on experience.
We replaced everything on a machine 3 or 4 months back because the M$-Gurus(tm) wouldn't screw with it (not their equipment) and the poeple that it belonged to (another agency) screwed it up. It all started with a trojan that I could have cleared (thank you very much, linux), but which the boss said to let the M$-Gurus(tm) fix it because that's their job. No way for us to fix it after the outside agency destroyed everything, so yank out the "restore disk" (it doesn't restore anything, it obliterates things) and start from scratch. (I ended up getting yelled at for fixing it myself, but it would still be down this time next year if we waited for the M$-Gurus(tm) to repair things.)
The M$-Gurus(tm) came out awhile later and did their messing up of things: putting on anti-virus, messing up the network settings, adding in a more bloated Office than we had, etc. That was right around 3 months ago.

Now? It drags more today than it did yesterday. It dragged more yesterday than it did last week. Last week was noticably slower than last month. At the rate it's going it should need to be restored again in less than 6 months. It's been on 24-7 since it was restored (read: obliterated) except for a couple of power outages. So there's been ample opportunity for the filesystem to make itself faster.
Maybe it was taking a nap during those rest periods as it had to work so effin' hard trying to get things done on a domain. Whatcha think, privates? You think that might be why it didn't speed things up while we weren't looking?
Fortunately, the M$-Gurus are going to replace the machines with some they do own so we can make them do their jobs in the future. But that's about the only thing that will prevent the one mentioned here from needing another restore (read: obliteration) within the next few months.
Yep. Works as good as it did in 98.
