Would you buy vista if it had the same theme as xp?

There would be not much difference than, that's what I think.
Trust me' date=' there are huge differences other than the theme.[/quote']

Yea "Ianaa". (from what i here) they lost allot of people. Theres something with the security things. It doesent allow you to do stuff, and it changed some things, and everything. I guess its all a hacker thing. But its still horrible. (i'll buy once the pirce comes down)

As a developer who writes Ring 0 software...

Gah!!!

Vista, may the fleas of 1,000 camels infest your arm pits!

A close friend of mine does video editing.

Then he goes and buys Vista.

...

The next day he tells me he wants to throw his computer out the window.

The company writes a patch for it, but the program is still buggy.

"It should have waited a few months," he said, "so they could iron out a few more bugs."

That may be easy for you...

But, try explaining that to the THOUSANDS of people that download your tools off the Intel web site... :(

1. User downloads a tool off Intel.com

2. Runs it.

3. Security Warning... :?

4. Hmmm... I better deny that!

5. Program fails

6. ...calls Intel... $$$

7. "Your program doesn't work"

etc.

Personally, I'm not even going to think about upgrading to Vista until after they release the first service pack for it.

Same here, or at least after a year has past. Whichever comes first.

Actually to be completely honest, my XP still works, has and will for a very long time and while ever there's rumours of an XP SP3 I'll continue to use it.

Well, I'm glad you have an AMD as you are probably one of the people that would call...

:?

Support calls cost a company money (thus the $$$ in my previous post). My job is to write software and web sites that PREVENT support calls, NOT generate them.
