It’s a new laptop, came with Vista, no option for XP. I actually like some features on it way more than XP.

It runs smooth/fast and haven’t had any problems personally so I don’t get why everyone hates so much especially if they don’t use it (or have to).

The anti-vista whining is about as annoying as the mac-loving whining.

Enumerate the better features that CANNOT be added through a third party program.

Because when you have to actually fix something that the luser broke, if you forget to turn off UAC you can’t get anything accomplished other than “yes, I did want to do that, yes I did want to do that, YES NOW SHUT THE **** UP DAMMIT I WANTED TO DO THAT!”

(caps are there to show the rising level of annoyance with UAC)

You think it’s slower because of the girly things like that fancy clock there and that sh*t…

Just do as I do… Use Windows Clbumic (Windows 98) layout… You’ll see, it’s as fast as Windows Xp…

Block auto updates… don’t let windows play around… you can do that… just have to disable some things…

It’s not just auto update that calls home. Oh yeah, UAC is a royal pain in the bum. Alsom try installing custom, non-signed drivers in vista, see how that turns out.

Not Windows in general just Vista. Unless you want a server…

Windows for gaming/Office, Lin for everything else.

How does that change the fact that it runs smooth and hasn’t given me any problems (had it about a year now)? Also it’s pretty handy to just have things without having to add them, so I don’t see the downside there either.

Why would I hate something that isn’t malfunctioning…

Sorry I don’t think it sucks and you do. Somehow I’ll live though. If it dies I’ll make sure to let you know.

Not as much “hate” as “have no reason to upgrade my XP to it”, lol

Vista is fine, I have it and it works well.

This. Only people who hate Vista are people who only read about it, and don’t use it.

Also I love a bunch the features on Vista I didn’t have with XP.

Vista > XP so much

I have Vista on my new computer, and I quite like it. I had Vista on my old computer and it SUCKED DOG BALLS. If you have a machine that can handle it, Vista is a nice OS to have.

I have it on my new laptop. There have been some extremely minor glitches, but on the whole it’s a lot more advance than XP.

My biggest issue with Vista are network transfers, this alone ****es me off to no end. In my household network shares are used frequently. My vista box transfers at about 1.3 to 2 MB/sec where as the XP machines can transfer about four times that rate.

Vista released a patch but it did not increase network transfer speeds, it only stopped the occasional hanging I was experiencing.

I continue to use Vista because I love the interface, I also like having DirectX 10, when Vista came out DX10 was only available on Vista, it is now available for XP.

Why do I continue to use Vista? Because I have 200+ GB of data and NOWHERE to back it up ATM, soon as I have access to a storage device capable of a complete back up XP3 is going on this baby.

Here I’ll give you my personal critique of Vista

OS Performance (Overall) 6.4 out of 10

Application Compatibility: 8 out of 10

Local Area Network Performance: 2 out of 10

Internet Performance: 8 out of 10

Security: 6 out of 10

Ease of use: 9 out of 10

Innovation: 6 out of 10

Customization/Modding: 7 out of 10

Memory/Resource Management: 4 out of 10

Eyecandy: 8 out of 10

My machines specs:

3.33 Ghz

2024 MB RAM

ATI Radeon 1550 (256 MB-PCI Express 16X)

So far I like vista except I cannot find anything on it because it is so different than XP. It’s just getting used to it thing though.

What I need to do is figure out how to play games without getting motion sickness Log in to see images!

Vista is a great program. Why does everyone say microsoft is bad? Its like google! Everyone loves it and vista is part of that. Chances are if its microsoft, it’ll work better than anything else out there! Take microsoft word for an example! That is by far the best typing program out there and microsoft made it!
