Anyone Actually Like Vista??? Sep. 13th, 2008 @ 02:01 AM Reply

I do. I have it, and have had little to no problems with it.

"You are a noob! Vista sucks!"

Well, from a person who hasn't had any trouble with it, take my advice: don't just go to the store and buy one. Don't just order it online or over the phone. Get a proffesional to set it all up for you, and it'll be more stable than a mac. This does cost quite a bit more...but as it turns out: the better things are, the more they cost. In case you didn't know.

Of course, the other alternitave is to buy a Mac, depending on who you are.

Artist? Get a Mac.

Gamer? Get a PC.

Vista isn't Microsoft's best release ever, but why people still think it sucks despite it being pretty much fixed is beyond me.

Actually, I'm an artist with a PC and it fulfills my needs. All my image editting programs work fine and so I'm still happy with Vista.

The masses like it so thats good enough for Microsoft. They dont give a shit about internet nerds like the people here on NG. Seeing as 77% of the public uses Internet Explorer. MS will still have a bright future.

Yeah I can deal with it but it is a RAM hog. Looks cool but who cares about looks as long as it performs well. XP was good and is still on top in my opinion but as time goes by vista will be on every comp. Its bearable though.

My parents bought a new monitor after the old one blew out from too many power surges.. (We didn't have the surge protector, apparently, and we live near an electric company)

Turns out, it's vista. I thought it'd suck, but it's not that bad. Doesn't really run that slow.

By the way, Radioactive, I like that name. :)

Well, that depends on how serious you are about art...if you're a proffesional and it's a full time/part time job, buying a mac should be easy.

If you're doing it for small stuff (personal galleries, sigs, a few bucks here and there) buying a mac is insane if you already have vista.

No, it's so slow and such a memory hog. And so many useless features.


If each mistake being made is a new one, then progress is being made.

CONS:
-Vista still has its fair share of bizarre wireless compatibility issues, which for me, renders the operating system useless every 15 minutes for so.
-It's services are a convoluted interdependant mess.
-The control panel applet redesign is disjointed, and the more advanced options (which were the upfront options in XP) are buried.
-The visual style is cheap and eye-straining.
-It's a resource hog.
-Task bar is gigantic.
-Outbound filter capable firewall.
-System information collapsable panels are very clunky.

PROS:
-Very cumbersome advanced firewall management.
-Encourages more secure programming.
-Separates system icons from program icons in the task tray.
-Very nice redesign of games.
-Instant startmenu searching.
-More cohesive start menu design.

I write music, edit pictures, and develop 3d models. Propellerhead Reason, Sibelius, Photoshop CS3, Corel PSP, rhinoceros, inventor, sketchup, archicad, autocad all work on windows pretty damn well.

Gamer? Get a PC.

Bootcamp?

i'm studying to be a graphic designer, how am i suppose to afford a mac if i can barely pay for the tuition as is?

I personally like the way Macs work compared to Windows. Also, Mac is a lot more stable, although Windows is slowly getting there.

Computers aren't used for just games. Besides, they only game I would want to play on my computer is Spore, which is also for Mac. Otherwise, I would just bootcamp windows to play it.

huh? no problem on my end with wireless.

thats just MS for you.

-The control panel applet redesign is disjointed, and the more advanced options (which were the upfront options in XP) are buried.

We call those "changes" and whether they are good or not is a matter of opinion, cons are facts.

-The visual style is cheap and eye-straining.

read above.

-It's a resource hog.

Agreed.

-Task bar is gigantic.

Again, your opinion, maybe someone with not perfect vision needed a bigger taskbar to see it more clearly...

-Outbound filter capable firewall.

Used to stop your computer from infecting other computers in case of viruses.

-System information collapsable panels are very clunky.

agreed.


PROS:
-Very cumbersome advanced firewall management.

maybe I have my definitions confused, but calling something cumbersome is calling it slow right? if so, then shouldnt this be in cons? regardless, firewall management is improved.

-Encourages more secure programming.

no comment

-Separates system icons from program icons in the task tray.

You are running out of ideas for pros arent you?

-Very nice redesign of games.

Visuals basically are better

-Instant startmenu searching.

Horrah!

-More cohesive start menu design.

yep, basically the small things are helped.


If I could name one person I respect.........it probably would be me. oh and the guy who lives here

People say its sucks because:
1) It used to suck a looong time ago before they fixed most of the stuff.
2) They can't afford Vista. Lets face it, why on Earth would some1 spend 500 dollars for an Operating System. XP is MUCH cheaper and Linux is basically free. Macintosh is seriously overpriced and totally useless unless you do nothing on your computer EXCEPT Photoshop.

I myself use Vista, and have had no problems with it, in fact I had more problems with XP.
