Is vista upgrade the way to go on a new build? - Page 3

post #21 of 32
No matter what you guys say and complain about, or how many problems it has, eventually vista will be the primary OS. SO STOP TELLING TO NOT GET IT.

There.

Very true. On a new build there is no reason NOT to get it. I understand if you already have XP there isn't much reason to go with Vista...

I know of 2 reasons to not get Vista on a new build.

1) Your a scared to try new things.
2) You have a workstation or such that relies on an application, a very major application for your work that is not supported by Vista and only XP..

True,
I live by that model... Hay, how do you (insert task here)? Just Google it!

But I was just trying to shed light on the one positive of buying the upgrade vs OEM. For $10 you can upgrade to Vista 64 when Vista 32 just aint doin it for you anymore!

32 Still has it. I don't see one good thing about 64 bit other than 4GB+ of ram.

Also Intel processors can get a nice hit on 64bit because of their emulation of 64 bit compared to AMD true 64bit..

I'll look for a link but what I believe is Intel just like with it's q6600 isn't "true" 64bit. I uses some sort of emulation technique but it works fine.. Sometimes though, compared to AMD 64 bit apps run better on the AMD.. This isn't always true but it can happen.

1) If you're an expert at XP then you're an expert at vista, whether you know it or not. Vista(aside from its problems) is extremely similar to XP. Well, what the user see is extremely similar to XP anyway.

2) Though most applications support vista, even if not stated, you have a point. So you win this one I guess.

For number 1 I was going to say something more harsh but the word filter cut me off.

There.
somebody needs to calm down. and just cause something is the primary os doesn't mean you can't say not to get use it.
hell how many people use something that isn't primary? anyone here use linux? that's not a primary os, how about firefox? that's not the primary browser.
honestly it shouldn't matter if it is a primary thing what should be important is finding what works. not just following the pack like you want to do because everyone else is doing it
