Boot Crap

It seems that I'm not the only one with problems using the track pad in Boot Camp.

Unless I plug a proper mouse, the shiny new MacBook's trackpad works like crap.
There is no way to do a right-click, drag&drop drops too early.. a lot of jittering when clicking.
geez !!

The Boot Camp tray icon to see the settings has also disappeared (I wonder if that's because I use the partition with Parallels 4).

Also my NTFS formatted drive, is now read only when used with Mac OS X with MacFuse + NTFS-3G.

..it's all pretty messy.
I will try to reinstall Vista with Boot Camp from scratch and possibly to avoid NTFS for external drives.

On the good side, I've been writing some (trivial) code with Xcode to get myself acquainted with it ..no need to use Vista when I'm not working.

..issues !!

Edit: also issues with my spelling, fixed a few mistakes !!!
