vista...whats all the hate for?

By Norehca ·
Its starting to get to me a bit. I respect your opinions, but im seeing alot of hate towards windows vista. I see nothing wrong with it. It works perfectly fine on my computer. It only took me a couple days to totally learn vista, so why are people talking about relearning vista. Yes it doesnt support certian programs and drivers. I expected so. What about the manufacturers of your hardware? I think they should be making drivers for vista. I think they are to blame as well. They knew it was coming, video card companies like ati and nvidia were ready. they even had drivers for the beta versions of vista! ANd i also dont think windows Vista is like mac osx. I have used it quite a bit before and i dont see like any similarites. It seems to me Microsoft is adding features that people like that are in other OS's.

Ive used Windows VIsta and i love it. Ive only had minor problems wih sound card drivers amd a few apps. I expected this and so i simply dual booted my system with xp and vista. ANd eventually Vista will take out XP and become the standard, just like xp took over 2000. Why do you hate vista? im not sure i get it.

For the sake of discussion why do you like or dislike vista?

again, whats all the hate for

by Norehca In reply to There is right, and there ...

First of all do not call me boy. You yourself have yet to show me anything worth calling YOU a man. You do not know me. Venting on a thread and throwing shots is not what i call mature. Find another thread to post at.

I did not say i was a pirate, and do not point fingers. Again you do not know me.

And yes i use Vista quite a bit. And yes i do run REAL applications as you call them. And i do have work to accomplish, and guess what? Im doing just fine!

If software is your problem than state so. This has been your first valid remark on this thread. You have criticized more than throw out your opinions. I suggest a change of attitude.

The point of discussion is what you think. A sentance starting with I think..., or I believe...

Do not talk about me, talk about vista. THis is what the thread is for.

No hate. Just strong disagreement.

I just don't like to see people spreading nonsense like you are here. Your own posts here contradict each other. And, I don't like to see people bask in hypnotic adoration beneath the glowing Microsoft orb, and encourage others to do so. I have no respect for anyone who does that. Microsoft is not doing the job. Period. And, you're a Microsoft fanboy. You should should just admit it.

- You were the one who said Vista runs "fine" for you. Then you list all of the things you value that don't work, so much so that you reboot to XP in order to do what you want to do with your computer. As released, Vista is a failure (that's what I think and have said so directly). If Windows 3.1 and Windows 95 were as incompatible with the programs people were running back when they were released, people would have seriously considered OS/2 instead. Only a fat stupid monopoly could get away with such failure today and STILL make billions and billions in profit each year. People just have too much already invested in Windows.

- You were the one who dismissed illegal and unethical conduct as something you "don't even look at".

- You were the one who dismissed piracy and were "sure" I do it or have done it.

- And finally, you were the one who exhibited great ignorance about the past and present of the computer hardware and software industry. So much of what you have posted here is simply incorrect.

That sounds like juvenile behavior to me.


The "I thinks"...
In the several posts I have made in this thread, I have made LOADS of comments that make it clear what I think. I don't understand how you could miss it.


Summary
As released, Vista is a disgusting failure. With all of their billions and billions of dollars, and after nearly 6 years of development and delays and false starts, this is all Microsoft can do? Completely unacceptable. This kind of failure would NEVER be tolerated in any other Fortune 50 company. Executives, managers and engineers would be held accountable and the heads would have rolled a long time ago.

However, since I must use Windows for some things, I'm looking forward to being able to run Vista when Microsoft finally gets it right enough...about 6 to 12 months from now.

Pathetic!!

by TechExec2 In reply to yikes buddy

What a pathetic wimp you are!!

You started this t*rd hunt and now you are crying "uncle" and asking for the thread to be terminated??

I'll freely admit that I am being hard on you and a bit of an a**hole. But, it is largely justified.

You need to go back to the shallow end of the pool.

Really?

by apotheon In reply to yikes buddy

Those statements looked to me perfectly reasonable -- especially considering your trollish behavior and victim-culture dissembling.

I think this is a common belief

This can also be applied to the alternative OS

Yes it doesnt support certian programs and drivers. Whatd you expect? Its brand new! Many people think that its up to microsoft to make all your hardware work with Vista. What about the manufacturers of your hardware? They also should be making drivers for vista. I blame them more than microsoft.

Funny how that text can also be applied to Linux.

There are alot of "Top 10 reasons not to get Vista" sites that are also hating on Vista but this one has both sides of the scale. But when you compare them one surely outweighs the other.

As for the sake of discussion I don't like or dislike Vista I just choose Linux because it's what fits me personally. Ultimately everyone will do the same. (choose)

Excellent point!

by apotheon In reply to I think this is a common ...

I was going to say something about the Vista driver excuses offered, and how Microsoft devotees tend to ignore that aspect of driver availability when attacking non-Microsoft operating systems for "ease of use". I'm glad you already made the point for me.

You're obviously a troll.

by apotheon In reply to vista...whats all the hat ...

Your posts remind me of some of rickk's "back in the day" -- pretending to be nice, but really taking a very trollish position, thinly veiled by exhortations for us to "all just get along". The clincher in this case:

"Oh and by the way, if your getting video errors its because you have no knowlege of computers and didnt go to your video cards website ot get the latest vista drivers! If your computer stupid, stick to XP dont complain please. And dont complain about the price either just because you want it and dont have enough money."

Yeah. Troll.
