What were they thinking....I must admit until Vista start conflicting with my old favorties software I liked it. But then it was like one thing after another. And now Windows 7 which absolutely nothing but Vista (FIXED) and we have to pay for it ? Now let ask you if we want our systems to run right, do we have a choice ? :mad:

There is no problem with Vista. Its only people who can't fix their problems that complain ruin Vista's or any OS's reputation. What favourites software was conflicting?

Please DO NOT complain about software that is READILY AVAILABLE TO YOU when you BUY A PC.

The Vista Forums are for DISCUSSING about Vista, not COMPLAINING about it. :sarc:

I dunno guys, in truth Vista tried to make too many leaps forward too fast and the average non techie was better off staying with XP. If not for DX10 I probably would have stayed with it myself, but that's the way with all tech. when new things are tried not all of them work right away so the next leap forward is usually a nicer, more prettily packaged update to the "trial" tech. You see it in games too, the first game to use a new engine is buggy and broken, but the next game or even the next engine is better (we all know it's never perfect, but it is usually better). Personally, I feel I can now sypathise with ppl who bought windows millennium edition. It just feels like it's too soon for a new OS and is really bad PR to make one. If ppl feel insulted who, like me, bought Vista for their newly built computer expecting the promised "Gamers OS" I understand. That being said, unfounded criticism and hype-buying are unnecessary.

I am your kind of person. Has anyone noticed that Vista has received more complaints than XP? And XP has been in service for 8 years! :rolleyes:

EDIT: What I mean is, I am kinda neutral. I don't like Vista, and I don't think it's bad.

Its received more complaints because people spend time complaining rather than fixing their problems.:p

Quite a few of the complainers installed their Vista on an older computer ill equipped to handle it.

I agree, Vista's raw demand towered over all previous OS. I'm 90% sure it caused the demise of my old HD (a pos 5400rpm seagate 80Gb that constantly hit 100% disk usage on Vista). Not to mention the Ram! Many a budget laptop manufacturer found out fast that 1Gb doesn't cut it (I've even seen 512M of Ram on one at walmart!)

That's the main problem in my opinion also. When it first came out, none of the budget computers had good enough hardware to handle Vista.

Most people don't even know what RAM is, at least from where I'm at. They think that the only thing that matters is how many songs and movies their computer has, but they don't even know what the name of the thing is that holds them.

Luckily, now, you can get a pretty cheap computer that will, at the very least, be able to handle simple tasks like working in Office or MS Works and reading emails at the same time.

Or you can spend a little more (about $1000, that may seem like a ton for some people but if you really want performance, it's not that much) and get 4 gigs or ram, a good graphics card, a faster hard drive, and a better processor; and be able to run everything perfectly smooth.

I started on Windows 95, then 98 (didn't use them for much besides watching movies though because I was only about 7), and then I switched to XP once it came out (I was in 7th grade), and I LOVED it.

I got a new computer four months ago because I was tired of using my dad's. And I have only had one bad experience with my computer in the four months I've had it (start-up issues); and that's because Dell didn't set up the BIOS or install the drivers correctly. So it's not even Vista's fault.

You do need a much better computer than you used to need, but there are hardly any computers that can't handle, at the very least, simple tasks on Vista now.

Personally I love Vista. I've never had any freeze-ups, and I don't have any file compatibility issues, but most likely I will buy Windows 7 when it comes out, or maybe a couple months later, just because I want to keep up-to-date and it looks cool. I do wish it was cheaper, though, because I only earn about $300 a month right now working minimum wage only a couple days a week.

Right I agree, a thread on a GENERAL DISCUSSION FORUM is no place to just carry on a GENERAL DISCUSSION.
