Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
Windows Vista significantly simplifies the process of setting up a new computer. Users are asked to complete only the most essential tasks so they can get to their desktop as soon as possible and begin enjoying their new computer. Users can quickly review their language and country settings, and review and accept the Microsoft Windows and computer manufacturer license terms. They then create a user account with their username and password, and personalize their computer with a unique computer name and desktop wallpaper. After selecting automatic updates for Windows to help keep their computer up-to-date, and reviewing their date and time settings, users can view optional offers from the computer manufacturer and begin using their computer immediately.
