Re: Click if you hate Vista

No offense mate, but I think this is stupid.

These people are slagging off Windows Vista, yet they've never tried it and then they try something disguised as Vista (seriously, how can you disguise it? Yeah you can disguise the way it looks, but tons of options are the same) and now all of a sudden they like it... well let's pretty stupid IMHO. I must admit that I only watched the overview and a handful of the videos, and I've got to say that either these people are either actors or incredibly stupid (which is these reason I couldn't watch anymore.)

The main reasons that I can see as to why Vista isn't liked as much as XP is very much similar to the reason that people didn't like the upgrade from 98 to XP (they were used to how one OS worked and didn't want to 'learn' a new OS.) I *HATED* Vista at first and to be frank, I still don't like a few things with it, most notably having to click OK every damn time I want to do the most minimal of tasks. Oh and the fact that my mum's computer 'pinched' a hard drive off me (I'd installed one of my old hard drives to rip some music onto her's, yet when I tried to remove the hard drive it wouldn't let me because it saw it as being a 'significant hardware change' and wanted me to either re-install Vista or put the damn hard drive back inside my mum's PC.)

But!

Once you get working with it, it comes into it's own. It is a good, stable OS. Troubleshooting with Vista is made far more easier and you're given far more options. I do think that these upgrades could've been implemented into XP in some way as optional downloads, but there again, I'm not the marketing mind behind a multi-billion dollar corporation am I?

Re: Click if you hate Vista

I was an alpha and beta tester of vista and I saw so many problems that were never addressed, and I worked on my friend's pc last week and apparently they still haven't addressed most of them >_>.

The people in these vids are obviously retarded though, they have no idea what vista looks like???? The people doing this must have changed the startup screen too with like windows blinds because if not it tells the people it is windows vista.

Personally I don't hate but it makes me angry for all the easy bugs to fix, I will get it once I care to pay for it though.

edit: there should really be a conformation on the shutdown button

Re: Click if you hate Vista

the site is good in that it highlights how closed minded people can be once an idea is preconceived it sorta becomes fact. vista gets alot of bad press from zealots and people who never used it.

that said... the mojave site demonstrates that you microsoft really (in public anyways) is NOT listening whatseover. They need to address real issues still removing XP from shelves and doing promotion like this is not the answer. While imho still better than any mainstream OS other than XP. Vista itself has problems, performs worse than XP and is already being shelved for Windows7, as soon as next xmas. Lets hope MS has learned, just isn't demonstrating this publically.

FYI for the average stand-alone laptop doing mostly email and browsing vista is sufficient and pretty good (if you don't have the skills to upgrade to XP)

Totally agree with you mate, but to be honest it isn't even the products, it's the FANS of those products and their know-all attitude.

Not all of them are like that

Just the fanboys, and they annoy me too.

Re: Click if you hate Vista

That's true, I shouldn't generalise

Just seems like practically everyone that owns an Apple product likes to brag about it.

Re: Click if you hate Vista

Vista has its problems but overall it's a nice OS. The biggest turnoff is that Vista loves to hog resources on a system, so that's the main cause for people not liking it. The biggest advantage that Apple has is its ability to control every aspect of the machine you use, so that there are no issues with reliability when you use their OS.

I've got a mac,but don't know enough about either system to make any arguements for or against. All I'll say is it starts up quick,does what I want it to do and I find it easier to use than my old pc.
The downside is it has a small crack at the bottom of the screen that I've been told isn't cost effective to repair, oh and software costs a packet.

I know what you mean, one of my lecturers is like that. Nice bloke though.

I try and stay out of the Microsoft vs Apple thing. Not because it gets me irate, but because there are many many many many many things I care about more. Like guitars.
