Time for a New Controller

I think it's high time I bought a new game controller for my computer. My current one is a Gravis Gamepad Pro which I don't think they make any more. I don't even think Gravis is a company nowadays. I've seen a wireless controller at Wal-mart for $20 and I'm thinking about getting that one, but I don't know what the name brand is. Oh yeah, the reason I'm getting a new controller is the Gravis Gamepad Pro's drivers work for awhile, then stop working after a day or so. There is no support for my controller, and I've had it for about 5 years so I will have to spend the money for a new controller.

My Vista Xperience

I recently purchased an Acer 5610Z laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium pre-installed. It has a 1.6GHZ processor, 120 GB Hard drive, and 1 GB of RAM. I played with aero and wasn't impressed. I did notice that programs seemed to run a little faster than on XP though. After a month of using Vista and running into incompatibility issues with many of my programs, I decided to go back to XP. After I installed XP Pro on it, the sound and wifi stopped working. Thanks to the Acer website , I got the drivers and everything works great. Now, all my programs work and I don't have to buy newer ones. I recommend that everyone stay with XP until Microsoft fixes Vista. It may take a year or two, but until then, XP is the operating system of choice. rumor
