Vista is a piece of shit
 
Microsoft really screwed up. Vista is garbage. Utter garbage. Useless. It makes xp look like they actually had everything right.

The drivers don't work worth a damn. The wireless connection keeps dropping out.

Every single time you attempt to do something, it asks permission. And it doesn't pop up a box. It STOPS THE FREAKING SYSTEM, dims the windows, and brings up a warning.

The configuration is awful. Terrible. Detestable. Things which are very apparent in xp are hidden or buried 5 options deep.

I've read some recommendations to wait for the first service pack (for Vista or any other OS), and that's what I'm doing before I look at it.

Maybe someone will alter the Google search for those final two words. <img src=smilies/laff.gif>

And yes, I don't like nor intend to get any version of Vista. Go XP. If the next Windows after Vista is any good, then maybe that'll be the way.

Ladies and gentlement, with a slight modification, I present you: the truest statements of the universe. Seriously, I had a first look at Vista today, and it made me cry. Bloatedness and idiot-proofness at their best. I wish Windows 95 was back...

Kinda off topic, but apparently some people are trying to make http://www.reactos.org/en/index.htmlsomething right</a>.

I actually feel rather smug right now, given that I switched to Linux http://www.zophar.net/wwwthreads/sho...sb=5&o=0&part=over a year ago</a> and have spent large amounts of time since then completely eliminating my dependency on Windows. All because I had seen that Vista was going to be shit.

Eh, give it time...XP was garbage until SP1. I was on the XP Beta and detested it. I stuck with 98 even though I had the FCGK version of XP 2 months before it was comercially available. I didn't officially switch until about 6 months later.

Driver support does suck ass...but that will improve as more vendors take the time to create better/working drivers.

Turn off the User Account Control. It is mad lame, but its their latest attempt at idiot/spyware/malware proofing windows.
...its in the user and account settings in the control panel btw.

Again, obfuscation to prevent meddling by those who don't know what they're doing to prevent them from huring themselves.

> Vista is a miserable failure

Eh, I still prefer XP over Vista...but I just need to use it more. Probably as I use it on a daily basis I'll get to like it and get annoyed at XP for its lack of user features.

...pretty much like the way I perfer Opera over Firefox now.


So, give it time...take it out to dinner, romance it a little bit. It may be "the fat chick" to you right now, but get to know her a bit better and maybe she'll do something for you in return. Not officially endorsing yet, but giving it a shot.

XP MCE 2005 FTW!

Seriously, I agree with every single word in your post. Vista is junk. Now that XP has some sort of stability I refuse to downgrade or upgrade.

At home it keeps disconnecting from the network at random times. At work, it doesn't connect at all. It causes an IP conflict which takes a random machine on the network down...then it goes into this cycle where it connects/disconnects every few seconds. EVERYONE IN THE BUILDING has come to me saying "sam...my computer is giving me some IP conflict."

<code>C:\Users\Sam> ipconfig /renew
The requested operation requires elevation.</code>

Well, you've managed to elevate my blood pressure and my hatred towards a software company which ALMOST had their shit together with XP.

This is the worst piece of software ever released. I should sue microsoft and set a precedent. HEY KIDS! Want to bring a company to its knees? Connect a vista laptop! <img src=smilies/banghead.gif>

Any known cause for this? Is this some kind of new nannying bullshit?

What the fuck is elevation?

Agreed. I can run a copy of XP for longer than one year before needing to reinstall--that wasn't possible 4 years ago.

We should also sue Microsoft over the XBOX360 hardware being complete and uttery rubbish as well. It seems that 30% of them are defective in some form or fashion. Does Microsoft really thing they're invulnerable or what?
