WOOO! Vista!


Recommended Posts

vista = pretty. other than that, i can see no advantage it has over xp.

Don't forget, it also has really annoying security.

Well you can turn that off with a few clicks of a button.

Actually, the frequency of UAC prompts goes down over time. When I was running a beta build of vista until it expired, it was at the point where the only actions that would pop a uac were turning uac on and off, installing new programs, and viruses trying to eat me =)

all in all, once it goes down a bit (although that takes longer than id like), uac is actually helpful. but the boot time for vista is what really kills me. 6 minutes to reboot? NOTHANKS MS!

I used to have booting problems with my old computer. At first, it was taking about 10 minutes, but then it suddenly jumped to 30, then reached its peak at 45.... then my computer died.

this computer (yes this one) randomly caught fire once. I was working on a school project, and i smelled a burning coming from the case. I opened it up and the slave hard drive was on fire. Yanked the plug from the wall, poured my water on it. Nothing else was damaged though... not even from the water. I still have little melted pieces of the platter.

How strange.

usedHonda, I'll just stop posting for the rest of the night so you can just pass me and get it over with. :P

THEN, can you start putting some content into your posts?

:D

I've been trying to restrain myself from posting too randomly, but it isn't working out as well as I wanted :)

That happened to my friend once on his iMac. Now he has Vista Ultimate :P

ooh ooh they should have one of those mac vs. pc commercials and the pc spontaneously combusts. i would laugh.

this thread is going soooo off topic. but you know, there's only so far you can go with "I got Vista! Wo hoo!"

6 minute reboot?!? That is so insanely stupid it is almost incomprehensible.

XP with DX10 library

How can I get this? Didn't Microsoft say something like: You buy Vista or you won't get DX10 support and you won't be able to play any new games and there will be no security fixes for XP no more...?

If I could get DX10 work on XP, I'd probably keep it up until the security stop starts.

Actually, I want to get Vista for only one reason:

Then I could get a Tablet that works with PDN!

So you want to spend $100-200 for a $700 item to work on a $0 program.

Didn't XP have some of those problems at its start?

naahhhhh

up until vista, every win ver i've installed always had a faster boot time when compared to the previous ver on the same box. but on this one, xp is about 30 seconds as compared to vista taking almost 6 minutes (but that was a beta build, it might be SLIGHTLY improved now)

and yes, this box meets all the specs for "Vista Premium Ready"

I want my 20GB partition back in C!

Yay for qtparted + knoppix!

Actually, when I first got XP, there was a major security problem (with all the XP's sold) and needed patches for windows... there's always bugs, inevitable.
