New Whql Awesome Drivers - Page 6

post #51 of 52
Well Ive installed the 64-bit version of Vista Premium & so far so good. However, I wouldnt install Vista on anything but a high-end PC. Having said that though, Ive just copied some files to a cd to burn & opened the disc & the 'burn files to disc' option at the top of the toolbar has gone awol..sigh..

Though the 64-bit version of Vista is faster it would be noticeably slower than XP on any average PC without a doubt & the 32-bit version just plain sucks on ANY PC from my experience.

Vista has a ton of problems with networking. I worked the last few months as a pc technician and people brought their pc's in all the time with connection issues. Many times, when their product was brand-new right out of the box.

My friend and I did extensive personal testing with vista on multiple machines against XP on the same machines.
These were real valid tests, not ones off some websites.

And we found vista to be slower, not only in GAMES by as much as 10-15%.
But also in 20-25 other programs and tasks, with the exception of only a couple programs.

So now, tell me vista is better?

Edit- Also i've seen some very bad bugs with vista, I had one lady come in a few weeks ago, and her comp would crash everytime she downloaded something to her desktop.
And I've seen other similar ones. So all you fanboi's can shut up about how great it is, because the only experience you have with it is with one computer. And you obviously haven't even needed to test out what works and doesn't, you just say that it works with everything you have.
Well guess what, most people don't use/need exactly what you do, so there.
Working as a PC technician will of course make you think that.
People who aren't as "savvy" as us end up messing around with stuff or even downloading viruses (that sounds like what that lady did)

I don't believe your statistics, and even if so, there has to be something wrong. It can't be that far apart, even if there is a difference.

Anyway, we're not "fanboi's" because we haven't had any problems with it and it pisses us off to see a lot of people just dismissing Vista because they see others do. (last post of page 2 looks like one).

If anything, these people are fanboys (of XP) because they dismiss Vista for no reason. Fanboy doesn't really mean this, but people use it as such: somebody who blindly prefers one thing over the other (or just really likes it)

You also should not compare people coming to ask you, as a technician, for help to us. This is an overclocking forum and most people here have a lot more experience and a far better understanding of how things work than those people. As a result, they know what not to do and which links not to click. You should know this, cause, you're not somebody who uses the PC only for homework, MSN, browsing and music.. you're a technician, and you come to this forum.

The average person who does the above (and the people who talk to you about software problems) don't come here.

The only time one of us will go see a technician is because our PC died and we deemed it to be that something went boom but we can't figure out which part because we don't have spare parts.
