Say Goodbye To XP

i liked XP but i think this new vista OS just blows. whatever happened to, if it isn't broke don't fix it ? with all the money Bill Gates and microsoft have available to them i just don't understand how they could come up with something so useless and have it replace something that worked very well and people liked it. when i replace the HP i got now i'm going with an apple, and sayng goodbye to microsoft forever.

it all depends on how much you do on the computer. for just surfing the interweb or listening to music or watching movies or just general stuff then vista is no real issue. It has more "slips" than XP does so it is alot easier to hack into no matter what system of security you are running. My pops and i have the same computer and he uses his alot for business and the system couldn't handle it and crashed. Took him two days to recover or reload all the info on it. I'm a big believer and preacher for Apple and i will replace this computer i have now with one someday soon, hopefully soon.

Now i also have heard that if you have an older printer windows vist
will not have the drivers for your older printer or you wont be able to
find any drivers that will work.

I have absolutely loved Vista Premium. Haven't had a bit of problem with it.

The only real problem I noticed with Vista is that too many computer manufacturers shipped it in new computers with less than 1 gig of RAM. Vista requires a minimum of 526Meg just to operate and Microsoft recommended 1 Gig minimum. Personally, I would suggest a minimum of 2 Gig, but then again, I believe in overkill when it comes to spec'ing out a computer :)

I do to believe in over kill butt it's true if you
have at least 2 gig of memory you can run windows vista
fine.the thing is though if you put 4gig's of memory in
their your computer will only see a little over 2gig's
the fix for that is 64bit windows.:beep:

HAHAHAHAH VISTA gosh I hate it.

I can't use certain programs to get music cause of the new and improved built in firewalls. When i first for the computer it would blue screen everyday before I even installed anything in it. Drives me insane!!!

Yeah, if you are not set up as the administrator for the computer, you have much less ability. This is one of the security features that everyone screamed for, and now that it is there, everyone complains about it, LOL.
