heh, well Vista is soon to be among us and I've used quite a few of the beta releases, it's coming along quite nicely,

 

I certaintly will be converting my gaming boxes to Vista when it goes Final (few months from now so they say)

 

but what about you ? will you use it ?

 

cheers

I hate vista. It seems like this is the biggest pofs miscosoft has ever come out with. Loaded with tons of useless resource hogging eyecandy that will bog down your system. Yea they give you options that will help with the resouce hogging but like any stupid ass windows user they want it all or nothing. so now the have a nice dual core cpu that runs like a 386. Why do you want this? you see people say oh vista is fine. Thats fu**ing bs I seen vista run on a dual core system with the lattest video card and still its fu***g slow. Pro vista users are living in a dream world. all vista is offering is the same sh*t in a diffent wrapper. But hey you windows users would take eye candy over security anyway so what ever happens to your system is your own damn fault. and Yes I'm Randall and I endorce this post.

 

P.S. Windows users remind me of Emo people

I've tried it and I have to agree with Randall, its a filthy resource hog. I will never own the greatest latest machine therefore there will never been a machine with enough spec.s to run it.

 

I also agree, that in my general use of the beta it doesn't feel like a different OS, it feels like WinXP with a skin.

 

No I will not be switching to Vista, I will be using Linux as my main system.

yo dudes, ! I never said 'will you switch to Vista' in the poll, on the contrary, I'm just asking if you will 'use' Vista, much like you use XP today (if you do) for your gaming/whatever needs,

 

I certaintly will not move any of my linux boxes to Vista, but I definetly will movve my gaming boxes (currently running XP) to Vista to see what the latest and greatest from Microsoft will be like, and yes, I'm talking about when it goes final (RTM)

 

cheers

I said definitely and I will use Vista, but I'll probably wait a little while after it comes out (no doubt it will break a hell of a load of apps like XP did when it came out) before I buy it. I won't wait all the way until SP1 though :).

OS Name: Microsoftr Windows VistaT Ultimate

 

I am using it now for gaming and for every day computing. the only thing i dislike about it is that canon doesn't have a driver that is compatible with my printer right now. so, i guess i will be going back to XP until that driver is available!

Windows xp still lives on one of my partitions but this will be removed once i get a Mac running OS X so i can run multimedia appz like photoshop. There will be no place for Vista or infact any other Microsoft product at home.

I'm certainly going to give it a try at some point.

 

The trouble with being in an IT-related job is that many people naturally assume you use the most cutting-edge hardware and Microsoft technology - when I'm actually well behind with the Microsoft times and struggle with some modern stuff nowadays.

 

However, I comfortably predict I'll be called upon to help someone migrate their Outcrock settings etc (or more likely, I'll be volunteered by a member of my family) so I'll need to familiarise myself with some basics of Fista.

 

As for using it myself? Well, some of my geeky mates actually like it (but they're able to deactivate some services and optimise it to their requirements) whilst non-geeky mates badmouth it and show how superior they are by reinstalling XP for the umpteenth time. But me? I don't think it will add anything to my home computing experience. And the missus owns a Mac Laptop, so she's probably going to be somewhat adverse to using it, too...
