Default Vista's Long Goodbye still waving: The Register

I was wondering if anyone here using Vista has experienced this glitch....

Seven weeks ago, when we first reported Vista was causing many machines to stall indefinitely while deleting, copying and moving files, we were sure the problem was caused by a bug that would be fixed relatively quickly. After all, Vista is Microsoft's flagship product. It's also an operating system. And everyone knows deleting, copying and moving files are among the most basic tasks any operating system can set out to do.
Now we don't know what to think. Vista's Long Goodbye, as we've come to call this bizarre phenomenon, continues unabated. No amount of diagnosing by the untold number of confounded sysadmins sheds any light on the problem's cause, and Microsoft has yet to acknowledge its full extent.

To prove the point, one user found the problem went away when he ran an XP Pro Virtual Machine that was running on top of Vista. Mysteriously, it took him about eight seconds to delete the 23GB of files he wanted to get rid of. Using Vista on the same machine took him more than 25 minutes.
Thats just nasty.

Poor Vista it's taken quite a beating since it was released.
When SP1 comes out then I might reinstall till then XP is just fine for me.

Sorry- I misunderstood the tone.

As for Vista- i still think I'll install it whenever it shows up here- modustink, after five months, has finally informed me that it's being shipped.
