Dont Buy Vista (EDIT: out of date) - Page 11  

post #101 of 116
This information is old, if I remember correctly. I believe Microsoft removed the hardware limitations, and maybe some of the other gay stuff.

You are correct. Vista's transfer policy is now the same as XP...

Do you really believe Micros***? One or two cracks will fix everything =) They have also told that its going to be the most secure windows. Damn...i can go to market and buy a full ultimate ed. of Vista right now and all the updates through i-net works...Billy is looser. That's how it is...

I'm hoping someone "in-the-know" starts a F.A.Q. ON THIS ONE.
I'm with you all the way. I already have my Ubuntu install cd burned and ready to go even though I know next to nothing about how to use Linux. That's how not interested I am in Vista.

OMFGBBQLOLKTHXBYE!!!

Argh! Uh oh! I have to have the internet to periodically validate updates? OH NO! NOT THAT BLASTED INTERNET THING!

WHAT?! Now I cant even run windows invalidated? What is this world coming to?

Oh GEEZE, this cuts it! I cant install one copy of vista on all 17 of my computers?! WHAT?! How DARE they!


Vista is worthless, I am going back to 3.1. Oh yeah, if anyone wants to IM me, make sure its between 9am and 11am CST, I have to connect via dialup to my ISP, Prodigy. =D

This is so dumb it has the same license as XP does. You will buy it and you will use it just like everyone has for the last 20 years. Everything runs on Windows if it doesn't, people won't buy and so software developers won't write. It's not gonna change. Linux is great and it's free but lets face it for the dummies out there Windows is easier.

That's the old License Agreement. They have made several changes to it including the transfer to as many machines as you may own but never more than one at a time. And also some of the validation bits.

The Media Protection stuff you can blame on your beloved RIAA and other such Media Nazi's. Yes I realized it all start with people who just wanted to "copy that floppy" and all but some of us pay for our OSs, Music, and Movies.

I would say Windows is for dummies. I'm not getting Vista until a few years after it's release, which is what I did with XP.

This thread is kind of Null and void as the Licensing has changed.
