Windows Vista - In Depth. Sucks or Nots? - Page 2

post #11 of 115
I'm on Vista right now and I really don't like it. I haven't found any new feature yet that appeals to me and makes me think that this OS is any better. Plus, they are releasing another OS in the not so far off feature.

I really don't see the frame rates drop, on my system. I seen people have the same thing as mine in xp and they are like 10-20 frames slower. I read all the reviews about vista and me and my friend put the systems side by side and in CS:S Vista was faster and all my hardware was at stock speeds.

Noobular, read my edited post. Here I'll quote it for you.

Starting Vista from a cold boot takes minutes and is painfully long not to mention it sometimes freezes once the loading bar goes away...

Basically hitting start and then the turn off symbol hibernates the PC in a very deep turn off state but wakes up very fast with the click of a key.



Okay, rumors are one thing so don't talk what you have no proof of. At M$ pace Vienna can take 6 years but who cares? Are you always going to wait for the next best thing? Soon as the G80's were out rumors came out about G90's. Soon as P35 came out rumors about X38 chipsets came out.

Next:



What the heck are you reading? Besides who cares if Vista isn't any BETTER than XP. If it equals XP now and XP has been out for so long what can come of Vista with more development?

XP doesn't "own" Vista. XP is the older wiser man about to croke and Vista is in training as the young 20 yr old.

You can't be a loyal fanboy if you bash the same company you love. Smarty.

I love Vista, as new features how is search for you and the way RAM is being used and apps that you use frequently open faster.. Sidebar is awesome as well.

One thing is you will have crap performance with 1GB of ram. But Vista is solid I love Aero and it's just a-mazing. Not to mention I cannot wait that soon as a DX10 game is out I can play it and not depend on hoping some 3rd party can reverse engineer it for XP.

Is there anyway to ban someone for creating a flame war with absolutely no proof? (if I report it??)

I have linked to sources for all my information yet you create theories that you haven't even read my first post about RAM and such.

Does you system slow down when Vista is using 60 - 70% of your RAM? NOPE.

20282$ says you don't even have Vista Aakar and you are just a fanboy that hates one product, loves the other from the same company.

I have vista ultimate and heck i like the dreamscenes and the widget native suppport, that was like 3 programs i had running in the background on xp.

there are always positives and negatives, and each person and their lifestyle will determine what os is better or worse in their eyes, so just enjoy what is new and then get whats newer later. and there's nothing i've been able to find that i did on xp that vista won't do.

Lolz.

aakar leave the thread if you are going to continue making pointless statements with not proof and not even reading OP.

And no, Vista wasn't stolen from apple? ***?

Why would M$ who has been on top of the OS game steal from someone that was loosing? Hmm...

Just because people enjoy the eye candy and apple had that out first doesn't mean that Vista was jacked from 'em. To start the insides are totally different as in coding wise and kernal and such.

I made my own XP with nlite and I took out all the crap I don't need...runs great. The sidebar? I found that rather annoying actually. Aero? I'm still not sold on that...I still love the Windows Classic theme. DX10? Maybe...still have no clue how well that will work. I may warm up to it eventually...but to each his own.

no I am just saying that vista shouldn't be purchased yet since all the problems it has got with games (Dx10), compatiblity issues, resource hogging and security issues.
