He he... It's easy for you to say (4 GB of RAM?). :( Have you tried playing with Vista on only 1GB of RAM? :rolleyes:

On low power systems XP is better choice than Vista.
Well yeah I used to until I bought more RAM but why not grab another few sticks its only like £10 a gb hence why I have 4.

A very resource hungry Os which puts a lot of load on your system or a light weight system capable of running on System's which are very old?
How does it matter? A download machine is....well...downloading files.. how does it matter what OS or how 'efficient' an OS it's using?

if you've got a P4 with 1GB of ram (and you do), you're better off spending your money towards a hardware upgrade instead of buying vista.

oh and my media pC *does* run vista ultimate with 1GB of ram. Works fine for everything but gaming, as it lags for a bit on quitting UT3 - a 1GB superfetch flash drive cleared that up.

Well, thats mainly the problem of hardware manufactures for not providing appropriate drivers for their hardware, so it's theirs fault. Vista is innocent in this case. :D
...No. That was a problem a year ago. Now it is only an issue with legacy hardware and sometimes issues in Vista x64 Which is an issue in XP 64 to. It has nothing to do with Vista, if you REALLY care, boot your computer in unsigned driver mode every time and use modified xp drivers for your tv tuner.

This is exactly the Bullshit im talking about. People read about hardware compatibility a year ago and are complaining about it now even though driver support is now out there. for almost EVERYTHING.

I can run down a reason a lot of people hate Vista----

My brother in law made the mistake of not consulting with me before he went out and bought a crap WalMart computer. It of course had Vista pre installed on the system. Trouble was, it only had 512mb of RAM installed! Of course, it was slow and an overall pain in the ass. Once I dropped 2 gig of RAM in it (after a :slap: for being so silly) He's happy with Vista.

It's these prebuilt pieces of junk that most non-enthusiasts pick up on the cheap that make lots of people hate Vista. I finally upgraded to Vista 64 Ultimate and couldn't be happier.

Thats why Microsoft Got a Class Action for 'Vista Capable'. Not a current issue, computers now with 512mb of memory should not be sold with vista. In fact most computers $500 and more come with 3gigs of ram now. Thats just the way it is, How long ago did he buy it? I bet it was around Christmas or before? :banghead:

If they took Mojave home for a two or three week of beta test, things would be different.

From Ubuntu forums:
Dude, you quoted a ubuntu forum. Of course they're going to say some biased shit. Grow some brains. It's the cool thing to do to hate Windows because Apple's TV commercials made it cool, and many people do what Apple tells them becuase they want to look awesome on Campus.

Would you call the quote biased if I didn't mentioned it is from Ubuntu forum?

I do not see the quote as biased toward Ubuntu and/or Linux.

The first issue I have with it is that HP Laptop (a DV series it looks like) is better than my HP Tx1208nr. a HELL of a lot better, and you know what? My Tx1208nr handles vista quite well (Photoshop, Corel Painter X, Utorrent, CSS, Audiosurf, Websurfing, Dreamweaver, Audition EVERY week in memory intensive tasks). So when some ignorant person starts his rant (to be fair he did not get to it tell the middle) by saying the rigs are preselected and im running much worse equipment than what they choose to run it on and I find it perfectly fine (If not excellent) it makes me want to take away his right to speak because hes just kicking the shit up again because he has nothing better to do. (My computer is not even on the market anymore, but if they had chose this one, that has been off the market for 8 months people would have been just as impressed.)

Microsoft is just pissed off that the reception of vista was horrible, so they decide to try and prove the average person wrong by doing this, which will only piss us off more. The users testing this "mojave" operating system were expecting something better, so they "saw" something better. Its not that the operating system was at fault, Microsoft is at fault for failing to make Vista mainstream. It is this reason that no one cares for or supports it. They should have been warned when XP had horrible reception, and yet is now hailed as 'hands down the best operating system'. There is more to it than making the product, you have to make it sell, make people like it, and persuade people to like you.

Wow. Nice. They did fail to make it mainstream. Well. I will let someone else tackle this, Im just going to get pissed off and have a ******* heart attack. At least the facts in this statement are not wrong.

Im never going to look at this thread again. Have fun Guys.

All they did was show you average noobs how big of idiots you are for regurgitating Apple commercials all day.

WTF?? "No one cares for, or supports it"???? Wrong. Every new software is compatible with Vista. Companies don't waste time getting their old shit to work with vista because they're devoting their resources to creating new products that do. A 3870X2 is compatible with Vista. In fact, it's compatible with DX10 - which XP-Pro isn't. You bozo. I'm outta this thread as well.

The new software has to be compatible with vista, or it would be bad customer support. Just like I said, if you would take your time and read my post, there is nothing wrong with vista, it is a wonderful operating system, just as XP is. People don't realize that. Microsoft is pointing fingers at the customers like it is our fault Vista isn't mainstream, what they may not realize is people are too comfortable with XP, there is not a whole lot of room for expansion that the average customer cares about. bozo? I see you are new to this site, you would do well to respect it's users.
