Which software crashes the most?
In the last two weeks I’ve been having a lot of FireFox crashes. Strangely they have happened 9 out of 10 times whilst using Google AdWords.
Not what you expect from two leading software providers.
But the absolute winner for me has to be Macromedia Dreamweaver. Without fail, if I import an STE (site definition) from our standard library at work, it will crash. I take care to do each click slowly, and ever since I move to Vista Premium this year, Dreamweaver has crashed without fail doing an STE import.
It usually takes about 3 or 4 attempts to import the STE. Maybe it need to warm up the wiring. Doesn’t make sense.
Vista has caused a few problems for me:
My old HP scanner doesn’t have a driver for Vista, so it’s basically a piece of junk now.
My original Canon IXUS camera doesn’t have a driver for Vista.
I finally managed to download a version of Palm Desktop for Vista, to run with my old Palm m505.
However the Documents to Go program that runs for Vista, doesn’t cater for the old version of Palm OS I am running, so I had to ditch that.
Luckily the Adobe Reader for Palm worked, so I can still copy PDFs from my laptop to my Palm, so I can read them on the bus on the way to work.
And Avantgo still works, so I can download the Sydney Morning Herald titles onto my Palm, again for the bus.
Not a lot of memory left though.
I’m dreaming of a luxury HTC Touch SmartPhone though. Feel welcome to drop one my way, if you’ve got a free one.
