if you could embed the link for me that would be appreciated now that I have been demoted to my older limited pc due to a very evil experience I have had to go through today involving VI$TA!, people do not buy a computer that does not come with a system restore cd, if you use killdisk to erase your harddrive you will be sorry.

Vista is utter garbage. A bloated OS that is loaded with monitoring tools that work against the end-user. The OS itself constantly indexes all your files and monitors your activity for supposed "copyright" violation. On top of that, the OS has the ability to shut down functionality and install updates & drivers automatically without one's consent. Fuck that.

If you value your privacy and security in a PC OS then choose Ubuntu Linux. It's free, fast, fault-tolerant and works extremely well on less than current hardware. Fuck Microsoft and the NSA pigs that use the OS as a trojan into people's machines.

Ya Vista sucks but you can get around most of the stuff you mentioned above.

Dual Booting is the best option for a gamer.

Isolate each operating system to seperate hard drives with a boot manager and all is cool. Use Vista for gaming Linux for everything else.

I actually just installed Ubuntu 7.10 but deleted it after less then 20 minutes and went with another Distro. Wasn't happy about having to change the way the system looks with it's crappy orange and brown desktop. Why can't they make this thing look cool. Went with PCLinuxOS 2007.

Going to load Mandriva 2008 tommorrow on another system.

Re: VISTA SUCKS
pc noobs dont seem to understand you can shut off those annoying things permanently.

the funniest are those who pretend they are uber smart by changing to an OS which is limiting (for software) like linux or even a mac computer.

i have 3 harddisks in my pc.

1 with stripped xp home, for everyday use, 1 stripped vista for some games only, and lastly backtrack 2 linux for cracking/hacking.

the fastest is the xp home and also the most diverse, no problems whatsoever. and before someone says "yeh but you payed 3 times more than me", i downloaded everything via torrent within hours, kthnx.

use a combination of a few, instead of being a fangirl for this or that company, fools.

here a prime example of a fangirl.

he forgot to mention that mac is 2 times more expensive for same performance, most games do not work on it, many software is not compatible and if you want a faster computer you have to buy a new mac because upgrading parts is not possible.

he also forgot the mention that if you know what you are doing, the pc is the best way.

only retards who are stuck up in their own ass buy macs and pretend they are elite.

had to turn of that aweful user account control and the pointless windows sidebar.
But i still cant find my files without running a computer search and the search sucks, as once youve searched for one item and it takes you to that folder, the next time you type in the search bar it only searches within that folder instead of the entire computer.

i agree its a piece of crap. but windows did not let me install either of my 2 authentic copys of windows xp on my new pc. which sucks balls!

Re: VISTA SUCKS
Just went to a lot of trouble to downgrade (upgrade) to XP from vista business on my new top spec PC and laptop. I could have lived with all the problems mentioned above, sucking resources, ott security features and so on but majority of my hardware wont work which is worth more £ than both computers combined, HP plotter, data card, pen drive, video and audio cards etc etc even when there are vista drivers available they dont work. And then the wankers expected me to pay for a XP license to remove it. If Gates was in the room I would have slit his fcuking throat. Im telling everyone I know never to touch it

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 273989

Here's a tip about apps that only run on windows: They suck.

Anyways, what I do is to use an application called virtual box , with it you can run windows as if it was a Linux application, then I can run some windows only applications if I need to.

The best thing is that you can make windows XP have no access to the internet so you don't have to care about WGA , viruses or shit. And ubuntu is very confortable to do serious stuff, the multiple workspaces is the most efficient way to do multitask.

The only problem with the virtualbox solution is that it does not support 3d acceleration inside your windows XP. For 3D games I use WINE which works kind of well (I can run warcraft III and GTA) but it has issues with the latest games.

Not like the latest games are actually good.

well if you want to get rid of vista and you have a windowsxp CD and cant install it, your best bet is to download Killdisk to remove the secret partition by wiping the whole drive.

after you have removed the whole OS and its partition , use Ranish Partition Manager which is burned on a CD so when you boot your computer up it will automatically start, you will see where your old os was once it should appear as red you should delete these old red enterys, then in the same open area highlight the blank space where it was once red but is blank and select NTFS partition in the left side menu , and then tell ranish you want to format it as NTFS and click enter and format it it should ask two times toward the end it will ask you if you want to save your settings tell it yes you do and it should restart.

now you can install from your windowsxp CD make sure the cd is not an upgrade cd but the full version.

you can also select if you want to make two drives ,so all you have to do is make two NTFS partitions listed and it will show up as a second drive letter once you install windowsxp, now once it is done formatting just put in your winxpcd and your done it should load the winxp cd easily without any problems

windows ulitimate boot cd has all these tools on it BTW, you have to burn the ISO file your cd should be able to Burn ISOs by selecting

Sadly, you are so completely correct. Have been running into this so much with the NASA folks and I simply don't have the time to try and diagnose this sham, plus, after 27 years with Apple products, I just don't know enough about the MS-PC garbage to be effective. I get people on Mac OS X, and that does the trick, but jeeeeeez, this Vista is such a boondoggle

Re: VISTA SUCKS
Fastest Vista portable is a Mac:
[link to www.pcworld.com]

For people who appreciate finer laptop accoutrements such as a backlit keyboard and a slot-fed DVD drive, Apple has crafted another tasty offering in the form of the 17-inch MacBook Pro. Sleek, powerful, and able to run Windows as well as the Mac operating system, the MacBook Pro makes a strong case for becoming anyone's ultimate notebook.

Equipped with a 2.4-GHz Core 2 Duo T7700 processor, the maximum 4GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and nVidia's new top-of-the-line notebook graphics card, the nVidia GeForce 8600M GT, our $2949 test unit set new speed records. The MacBook Pro outperformed the rest of the notebooks we tested, all of which claim Windows as their primary--nay, their only--operating system. We loaded Windows Vista Home Premium on the Apple notebook, and it snagged a WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 88. In games it achieved a blazing frame rate of 141 frames per second in Far Cry (with antialiasing turned off).

At 6.6 pounds and just 1 inch thick, the MacBook Pro is the lightest 17-inch notebook available. But it has no memory card slots and only three USB ports, and it comes configured with an ExpressCard/34 slot instead of the more versatile ExpressCard/54 slot. Though it has Bluetooth and 802.11n Wi-Fi, built-in cellular broadband is not an option. On the other hand, video editors will be happy to have not one but two FireWire ports. Battery life was disappointing: Apple pegs it at 5.7 hours on one charge, but in our tests we got less than 2 hours, 45 minutes.

Nevertheless, the MacBook Pro is elegantly designed and remarkably mobile for a 17-inch notebook.
