Vista is pretty good eh?

With all those new, original, never before done features in it,
and all of that with that effective resource management! LOVE IT!

I think you're trying too hard. Maybe start off with a simpler troll

*sigh*

Sure, it's a troll but lets get our shit straight.

Vista isn't as bad as people say
Apple does not own a copyright on all cool features
Every idea that is in anything has allready been done in some form or another
Microsoft only sucks because non-conformists hate anything they have to conform to

Now shut up and eat your linux, it's getting cold.

The only complaints I have about Vista is the rediculous system requirements. I mean does it really need to take that much? And also have you noticed how much higher the requirements are for a program to run on Vista instead of on windows xp? I mean VSC++ takes half the ram on windows xp than it does on vista..... :ugeek:

Exacty.
I for one have limited ram and don't want to waste it on silly crap I don't need just so I can have less functionality in my os and have to click more to change stuff.
Officialy I can't even run XP with my 112MB ram. I have a couple of vista licences though, and I use them at my dads house but its still pretty fail and is mainly used on my stepmoms box because its less likly for her to break things on it.

I've been running XP since I first got a computer, seemed to work fine for me. I tried Vista out on a friend's laptop and I honestly couldn't find the difference. Sure, the layout for the desktop and folder options are a bit different and the toolbar has a more ergonomic design to it, but it didn't seem anything special to me.

Save the fact that I haven't had an in-depth relationship with it, I still prefer XP + Windowblinds over Vista.
Not to mention 768 MB of RAM isn't technically enough for Vista.

One problem I found is printer sharing. If you share a printer from a Windows XP machine and try to access it from a Vista machine it won't work. The only way to do this is on the Vista machine create a new local port with the \\computername\printersharename as the printer and install the driver. Cheap work-a-round but silly bug for Vista to have.
