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.)
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?
