    Well after working with Vista II, otherwise known as Windows 7, for
    three months I can see that Microsoft is still incapable of producing
    a quality OS. So I need to look at some other system to switch to,
    likely one of the Linux distros.

    So you can't figure out Windows 7? Windows 7 is much better than Vista and
    is very stable. You are probably incompetent and therefore you should
    migrate to Ubuntu. Get with our resident Ubuntu idiot, Alias and he will
    help you out.

    Don't let the screen door hit your ass on the way out. LOL!

    I switched from XP to W7 on a 5 year old system without any problems.
    If an old guy like me can do this and learn new stuff in the process one
    wonders
    what the education system nowadays is producing or maybe its just you???
    Every new OS has a learning curve but one must be capable of learning!!

    If you find you need assistance, which you most likely won't, just
    holler. I'm partial to Debian myself.

    Wonder away Peter I am 77 years old I guess that is not the problem.
    Ya us old guys can learn the new stuff.

    I have learned any number of systems over the years, ran a BBS for 13
    years, currently maintain a few local business offices networks. Any
    other questions on learning abilities?

    I had no problem with learning the system it is a problem with the ,

    time a week. A few days ago when she tried to open it Windows Media
    Player opened instead of QuatroPro. So the file association had been
    changed, I suspect by the last updates. Fixed that but now QuatroPro
    no longer works. Typical stuff. There are other issues but I will
    not bore you with them.

    An update cannot screw up a file association, only a user can screw up
    file association so it is not a "bug".
    And I seriously doubt that Windows Media Center could ever open a
    Quattro Pro file.
    And if you think that threatening to move to linux will somehow solve
    user created problems...then for sure, make the move, and make my day!

    You can always simply ignore the file associations. Instead of opening
    the document and having it open its parent application, open the
    application and then use it's File/Open command to open the document,
    thereby completely bypassing any file associations.

    My Win 7 is the most stable and reliable Windows OS I ever had.
    I even run several Linux distros as well as BSD and Solaris as virtual
    machines on this platform. What's your problem?

    If you had said that in the beginning, you probably would have had some
    helpful responses by now. ;^}

    It has been at least a decade since I used Quattro Pro and I don't recall
    its file extensions (and I'm too lazy to look it up, even though I'm still a
    youngster a couple of months shy of 75). WMP uses files with several
    extensions, so probably one of them conflicts with the QP extension. Char
    Jackson's suggestion makes sense to me: Start QP, then use its File menu to
    Open the spreadsheet.

    Have you tried to press Start | Control Panel | Default Programs? Here you
    probably can find the QP file extension and change its "Current Default"
    from WMP to QP.

    That's because I think it was simply a trolling post. Nothing more,

    Yeah, it's not nearly as good as Windows is in running viruses, root

    I don't really think Linux is worse at running them. I mean, they are
    just programs like any other program. Why would they run worse? :)
    I know what you mean though, but considering that most computers have
    Windows pre-installed, and most people keep Windows, no wonder why such
    programs are targeted at it (more users, more profit). So I think it
    shows that Windows is quite successful.

    Because of Linux' architecture and Linux doesn't do .exe files.

    This is a myth that is a part of the MS FUD against Linux. Unfortunately
    many people believe this FUD. The reason Windows is easier to exploit
    has nothing to do with its popularity. It's due to its architecture.
