Anyone who casually dismisses vendor documentation and  
recommendations probably does not have much of a future as a  
sysadmin.  That's not to say the vendor should always be obeyed, of  
course.  But the vendor's recommendations should be read, considered  
and understood before deciding whether to throw them away.

Discussion about how to get GnuPG working with Vista is probably  
fine, but Windows bashing seems a bit off-topic.
