Me :thumbsup: Best Windows OS :)
#4
Mac is better :)

I agree, Vista is pants, XP Pro is much better. Other than that, Solaris!

Off the subject here sorry...................... Did you book your holiday Choc and if so where did you opt for? :roll:

Back to the subject, i prefer XP as more software is compatible with it .

Vista's the best, Why majority prefer XP I'll never know.

If you've got an old pc or low spec pc then Vista will be pants has it needs more power.

Don't judge the OS on how pants your pc is.

Vista looks better and is more secure than XP, Not as many glitch's has their was when XP was first released.

I've not had any problems with drivers for my hardware, I've never had to re-install Vista yet and I've had it on my pc since day of release.

I was forever re-installing XP due to slow down, Vista is just as quick if not quicker than XP was on my pc.

I have vista, took a bit of getting used to but I think it's ok. Mind you I'm not much of a computer boffin so don't use half the stuff a pc can do.
#10
i have vista on this pc & my brother, my mum and dad all have xp & when i need to fix their pc...... i hate having to navigate xp ............... vista is just so much easier to navigate the settings
#11
Didn't like Vista to start with but now goin back to XP seems weird and ooolllddd. I like the Media centre & Movie Maker, v handy :thumbsup:

PS dual boot :-D but I rarely use XP, just for odd progs that dont run on Vista :whistling:
#12
went back to xp the other day after being infuriated at no driver for something on vista, xp ftw
#13
Its back to Windows98 for me, full re-install using ghost tonite took 3.5 mins on a duron 1100 lol it runs like lightning with 512mb ram

XP FTW.

I dislike Vista's interface, I still have it installed on one computer but at times I feel like throwing the computer out the window.

Microsoft can push it all they want but I can't see them making a big impact before their next version is due for release, which hopefully *fingers crossed* is miles better.

By the way Microsoft, remove the eye candy kthxbai.

bad?, in what way?
did it keep prompting you 3 times to ask if you really wanted to do a simple task?

did it have a confusing mix of graphics thrown in control pages that didn't actually do anything?

did it take an extra 4gb of your hdd space that you really could have used for other things?

did it require a spend of £200 plus to make your existing system compatible

or did it require you do the very environmentally unfriendly action of throwing your entire system away and buying a new one because there were no drivers to support your hardware?

was it's interface so radically different that most support people had a great deal of difficulty deciding if there was anything wrong with the system or just an idiot using it?

do you now spend hours worrying that the confusing array of versions may have lead you to buy the wrong one and your "must have" program may not work on it?

Have you now realised just how extortionately expensive it is and how little else it offers %80 of users in comparison modern Linux distros?

Shall I go on? LOL ,but there again I think xp is kaka too

-- Its useful on family pcs.. Sister tries installing some msn virus/spyware **** and it warns her and she asks if its ok to install etc.. and I can easily disable the ability for her account to install. Also you can just disable in about 3 clicks of your mouse..

did it have a confusing mix of graphics thrown in control pages that didn't actually do anything?
-- No idea what your talking about about.. just switch to classic view..

did it take an extra 4gb of your hdd space that you really could have used for other things?
-- 2x 1TB hard drive like that extra few GB is gonna matter! Happens on any OS.. Well maybe not Linux not sure aint used it in some time. My Mac when updating to 10.5 used more space! Oh god no don't use all that hard drive space!

did it require a spend of £200 plus to make your existing system compatible
-- Nope used my existing Pc and everything just worked! I have it running on my MSI Wind and it runs lovely! Maybe your just running some really old ****** hardware..

or did it require you do the very environmentally unfriendly action of throwing your entire system away and buying a new one because there were no drivers to support your hardware?
-- Again how old is this pc you were trying to upgrade? I run x64 on this pc and all the drivers work fine.. x32 on MSI Wind and a 3 year old Compaq PC and all the drivers were available.

was it's interface so radically different that most support people had a great deal of difficulty deciding if there was anything wrong with the system or just an idiot using it?
-- Don't quite understand that one.. Whats so different?

do you now spend hours worrying that the confusing array of versions may have lead you to buy the wrong one and your "must have" program may not work on it?
-- Doesnt matter what version of Vista you buy all software will work on them.. And I have very old games and software and all run fine. 1 or 2 didn't but just switch to run in XP SP2 and all sorted.. Wasnt hard was it

Have you now realised just how extortionately expensive it is and how little else it offers %80 of users in comparison modern Linux distros?
-- You got Crysis running on Linux yet? Games are still a large factor when buying a PC

Shall I go on? LOL ,but there again I think xp is kaka too
-- Oh a Linux user.. Should have guessed! Your now gonna tell me how cool Compiz is and start rotating your cube desktop around for hours aint you? :-D I have Ubuntu on my MSI Wind all kitted out, just dont use it..

sorry to disappoint but have never had linux as a desktop os for myself, have set some up for others but my current OS which has been on my desktop for 2.5 yrs is xp64
The release of XP was a turning point for MS, where it centered on the mass market of people who actually didn't really want to know much about computers but "had" to use them, vista is an extension of that strategy, shame but life is based on money
Personally I think windows ME was MS's greatest achievement although the bulk of people will disagree with that one.
What failed it was the concurrent release of win2k and the hardware manuf's inability to cope with releasing quality drivers for 2 entirely diff OS's, see the comparison?
This is the reason vista will not catch on before it is replaced.
