    yah I heard windows, what is it, 7? is coming out in '09, thats interesting. See I like vista though, I basically look at it as a better looking XP, I run 64bit and I really have never ran into any issues, besides my 3dmark score being lower:laugh:

    Vista would be ok, but its been far too much geared for the "stupid person", and is deffinately an insanely paranoid OS. Even with administrator rights there is A LOT of things Vista wont let you do, you have to faf about disabling all sorts or changing things to get it "acting" more like XP. What the hell were they thinking with those giant desktop icons as well? Fair enough you can change their size but their default size is insane, a majority of people arent blind.. and the ones that are cant see anything anyway so it doesnt matter how big the icons are made they still cant see em :p There are other far more serious problems with Vista though such as a total lack of sound hardware acceleration, which means that nice £200+ card you bought is reduced to nothing better than that £5 onboard audio chip.

    yah, the sound issue is why i stick with onboard now, I have a z5500 logitech with the decoder in it, so i use the optical out on my board and let the speakers do the work, it does sound great. I do agree that it is geared for the idiot, and its nice for my customers, I dont really like it but i have gotten used to it. My computer use has changed alot, Ive almost become a regular user, just games, web apps, TPU forums, and hosting and playing my media, so I fell right into vista and its right where i need. I like not having to work codes to get things to work and playing with dos and going through back doors for things. Ive become a pretty straight forward computer user and for the most part I like it.
