Windows Vista Ultimate Edition Review & Gallery
Pls reply if anybody knows whether if Windows Vista Ultimate Edition can join NT 4.0 domain controller. Thanks
Vista's security is worth nothing. It's TOO easy to get by and Microsoft falsified us with bullshitted information on their "goodassed" Vista security. It may be better than XP but not enough.
From your abject renunciation of product, nothing will ever be good enough for you... Let me see, have -you- ever cracked a Vista system? Feeback forums like this are mostly for 'instant experts' to rail against whatever the subject is, without objective, constructive criticism, and acknowledgment of virtures. Don't use MS products, don't bash them... tell us about what's better and how it's better. Post something useful.
Buy the Upgrade version, do a clean install, and you have the same thing for about $160 less. You'd be crazy to buy the Full version when MS provides a way to install it from the Upgrade DVD.
Unfortunately, you'll have to re-install WindowsXP, then install the Vista Upgrade. http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20070128-8717.html Also, did the reviewer try viewing any HD video content? http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,122738-page,1/article.html
at no time did i read "go out and buy it, you'll love it" what he wrote was that he liked it, and as a matter of fact I am not a beta tester and don't have a free copt of Vista, but i have gotten a look at it and I agree with him that It is cool new stuff usally is, is it worth the money? "IN MY OPNION" no, also In the blog it didn't say anywhere that "Microsoft did it first" they just happen to figure out that someone else had a cool feature that they could add to there system. I also read the other bolg about the driver woes, and wasn't suppried in the least, personally I never buy a new OS until SP1 comes out and then only if a game that I want only comes out for that OS! LOL all in all I think you guys were just a little hard on Steve for something you are mad at Microsoft for what ever that is.
I hope MS paid you plenty for this puff piece of a review. In 30 years of IT I never saw or heard of an OS that didn't have a flaw or two. Usually more.Yet you mention none. As far as the 'eye candy' I'll do without it for a good stable OS with a few flaws I can work around or live with.
I read you article on the Vista Ultimate review. Similar to those bloggers that got free laptops, there was not one negative thing you said about the program. I have been Microsoft Certified for over 10 years, and have been studying Linux. You praise Microsoft for having user's run in user mode, and bumping into Administrator when needed (Does the Linux command 'SU' ring a bell...Linux has been doing that for years), Seperate directories instead of Documents and Settings (Again, Linux /Home Directories). So what you are saying is that Microsoft Finally got a clue and used Linux as a model to create Vista. Oh, and IE7, and Tabbed Browsing...sorry, Firefox has been doing that for a while. So if I add the Aero-Glass (Which by the way, my lowely 2Gb Nvidia 5650 laptop is barely capable of using), Firefox, and Root/Admin restriction, I have my Vista System? I know the new file system WAS supposed to be part of the new system, but alas it is not. So what we got from Windows was 5 years development of Eye-Candy? Oh, and BTW, I cannot run Vista at work because of Driver issues, and the Novell/Microsoft Pissing contest going on with SLED 10 (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop), so that Novell can't or won't make a Novell Client for Vista until Sometime in 2007? (As I recall, I used to get Novell Clients for Free with Windows 98...WTF) I understand what a great priveledge it is to be "ASKED" to be a beta tester, and you are afraid of pissing in the pool, so that you won't be asked back to the party, but some fair and balanced reporting would have served your reader base bettter. Finally, I may be a dinosaur, but still happily using Windows 2000 PROFESSIONAL, which does everything that XP does. Oh, and $399 Does Microsoft need that much money. I guess I will wait for the secondary market to unload these dogs at a Bargain.
I have been using Linux, Mac OS and Windows on my machines and boy i mus say, LINUX STILL RULES. Some ppl have deep pockets to keep on paying MS for EYE CANDY and no functionality.
unfortunatley for you linux doesnt rule, it isnt anywhere as easy for people to get working and add new stuff to like drivers for hardware or programs as windows is, linux is a dream and always will be. wake up to the real world, windows is the only real OS.
Linux may only be a copycat Unix but who really cares? Unix is not for everyone, as you can see by which product most people actually prefer.
I do not care if I am not invited back as a beta tester. These are the things I REALLY like about Windows Vista. I wrote another blog on the vendor and driver woes I faced recently. Did you click the link and read that as well? I wasn't writing this piece from a journalistic perspective. I could have but this is my blog and I express my personal thoughts and opinions. I will seriously take what you are saying under advisement and thanks for the feedback once again.
