Windows Vista - I give up...

I was going to swap out harddrives, and run Windows Vista for awhile, (to get familiar with it), but am now writing this from Ubuntu Feisty. It feels like the GNU/Linux experience has now bypassed Windows...

The final straw...? When I rebooted today and received a blank screen, also noted for NVIDIA cards:

Anyways, without access to Windows through Safe Mode, nor the command prompt (through Safe Mode), nor any of these through an external monitor, I am going back to Ubuntu, "which just works"...

BTW, this is on an Acer Aspire 5102WLMi with an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 video card.
