Vista gaming will be 10 to 15 per cent slower than XP - Page 4  

post #31 of 114
Annd...there's another nail in the coffin for Windows Vista.
  • WinFS
  • WGA 2.0
  • 4, count 'em, 4 years late
  • The "Pillars of Vista", which have been taken out at the knees
  • UAP, the worst security ever designed
  • The acronym AERO, Authentic, Energetic, Reflective and Open. Possibly the worst acronym ever conceived.

And now this. Do they really want to actually sell this OS? To the general public? Businesses? What a ****ing joke.

Vista is a few months old, whereas XP is 5 years old. XP has had THAT much more time to get the bugs out.

I have a Vista Ultimate installed right now, Beta RC2. It runs faster than XP, not to mention is more functional and looks better. IDK what they're telling you about the security, but its actually pretty tight.

No it's not bud, it's been in development for...5+ years now.

This was a fundamental mistake that i don't think they'll be able to fix.

I'll give my straight opinion on that, that statment makes 0 sense. What was fixed with XP in SP1 and 2 can be fixed with Vista as well. It's just an operating system, not a book set in stone, . For pete sake its not even officialy released yet, stop expecting so much!

Vista has been in development for many years now mate...It should be much better than it is now from a customer point of view. Also dont ever tell me that Microsoft has good security on there OS platforms as i will vomit in anger .

Yeah, sorry for expecting an OS that doesn't use 500+ MB of RAM at boot.

Even Leopard doesn't use that much, and it's in late alpha state.
