The best thing about Vista

In XP this happens…



 



However in Vista … only this happens

“Windows® versions prior to Windows Vista® will, by default, automatically run programs designated in the autorun.inf file on CDs, but not on USB drives. By lying about itself, the U3-enabled USB flash drive fools the OS into autorunning something called the U3 launcher. The U3 launcher, in turn, can start programs, give you a menu, or do pretty much anything that you could do with the computer yourself.”

5 Thoughts on “The best thing about Vista

  1. Just another reason consumers will hate Vista. They don’t want prompts for action they want action. Prompts are NOT a good thing for the average Joe. And NO you will NEVER turn the average JOE into the thinking computer professional.

  2. I think you missed the point.

    U3 doesn’t auto load.

    The behavior then turns into the normal USB prompt that we ARE used to.

  3. hate that U3 software. here’s an uninstaller.

  4. It has not been widely adpoted, and XP is still available.
