::Vista Solitaire frequently repeats the same games

It often happens that after a few moves in a new hand, I realize tha
Iíve played this exact hand very recently

Is it because there are a limited number of Solitaire deals in th
program, or an issue with the random selection that causes them t
repeat

Has anyone else experienced this

Just one more reason why I dislike the Vista games
(Itís enough to make me nostalgic for the old Windows Entertainmen
Pack!):

The only thing random about Vista Solitaire is which canned game is coming
up. I saved the face cards from each game (1000 games) in Excel and found
that just about every game reprated itself, some much more than others.
Kinda cheesy.
