Another Vista Runaway
« on: February 09, 2009, 07:43:50 pm »
Lets face it, Vista sucks...

And the people who use it...get a mac.

I just installed Xp pro on my friends HP pavilion dv6000.

Everything works except graphics, but for my friend its nothing big, the generic driver works rather well.

There is no such thing as peace and there never will be. Peace is a delusion believed by the weak. Gandhi said : "An eye of an eye would leave the whole world blind". So be it because only a blind world can experience the peace that it deserves. But there in lay the sick irony. Who will be able to see this peace? The human species is at war. The enemy walks among us nearly invisible. Only those with true discernment can see them. But only one with discernment and vision can show them to others

Vista doesn't suck for some people.

But for the rest of us having problems, modifying it is really the only way to get a nice copy of it.

But honestly, you're better off with Windows 7 at this point. Less effort needed.

I find it funny that all you "techies" have problems with Vista, yet someone like me who doesn't know much can use it without a problem.

I had stability problems with it on my main pc, but a cheap notebook that I had for a while handled it fine. As did a computer I built for my friend ryan. As did one of those ancient Gateway tablet-PCs (one of the very first tablets to come out).

So yea, I've had issues, but I've had good times too. Slimming the ISO down usually helped me alot.

I honestly would downgrade to XP, but I've already looked into, and XP doesn't have the drivers I need.

In order to make it through the world one needs some insanity.

If I needed to use Windows for anything, I would try to use the earliest possible OS version. If I could run program X on Windows 95, I would. My dad's laptop has Vista and it gets annoying.

Everything has XP drivers. And if the company refuses to make them, someone out there made them for you :)

Welcome to wireless card land; just get the model number for your card + "linux" and search for it on Google, that's always how I start.

But honestly, you're better off with Windows 7 at this point. Less effort needed.

True, but you're still burdened with that primitive kernel and those security nightmares. Some have managed not to be attacked by malicious programs...But Windows still sucks...simply because there are more powerful OS alternitives.


I find it funny that all you "techies" have problems with Vista, yet someone like me who doesn't know much can use it without a problem.

Wouldnt techies try and stay away from vista? I dunno...

Once again you're still burdened with the issues still present within Windows...
If I needed to use Windows for anything, I would try to use the earliest possible OS version. If I could run program X on Windows 95, I would. My dad's laptop has Vista and it gets annoying.

What's so amazing is how little the win32 platform has changed. I can run apps from 2009 on Windows 95. 
I honestly would downgrade to XP, but I've already looked into, and XP doesn't have the drivers I need.

Everything has XP drivers. And if the company refuses to make them, someone out there made them for you :)

I couldnt find the  graphics drivers for my friends laptop. But she doesnt need them.
