post #11 of 33
What people sue over is getting rediculous. There has to be something done about this.

I say the plaintiffs should win. vista ULTIMATE is the full version. If it says "vista capable," they better damn well be talking about the ACTUAL vista, not some crippled "version" of the OS.

The requirements are about the same except for the HDD. Vista Ultimate can even be configured to use less resources then the other versions from what i am told by my friend who used it instead of Home Premium.

but it doesn't say a specific version. it says vista in general so if it can run a version of Vista on there, it fulfills its requirements. besides the laptop would have to meet the requirements as well. the version of vista is limited to the computer

Here is what I don't get. Why would any Judge in his right mind say this was ok? This lawsuit is just a massive waste of time and money. If MS has to pay a dime for this I will be pissed!

I agree that sometimes the stickers were placed on machines that should never have run Vista, but the fact is that they do RUN vista, just not well.
My video card (even my last card a nVidia 7300LE) meets the requirements for Crysis, but I will never be able to enable all of the features and still have it run well. This is the same thing. If the computer boots into vista and can run built-in functions of vista...then there was no crime. If people who don't know anything about computers want to buy a "new" computer for as little as they can find, they should at least go talk to a salesman/tech at Best Buy or w/e who will be able to give them a heads-up as to what they are dealing with.

If someone bought a '88 Honda that burns more oil than gas and expect to drag a boat with it, that is fine...it will probably do it...just not very well! If this was brought to court because it couldn't pull a boat...the judge would probably just laugh at him. So, why is this Vista case even being entertained?

My respect for the general population of humans goes down and down.
My Pwny!

Well my dad's compaq has the vista sticker on it... It used to run vista basic until my siblings and dad begged me to wipe it for XP. I said I didn't want to do that because we paid for the vista key, but I had to use the computer sometimes, so I gave in...

If the sticker means it can run vista like ****, why put on the sticker? It's obvious: to mislead people. I mean, this is all reasonably speaking.

Well you see, I think the "vista in general" should mean "vista ultimate," the full version. Why should they put "this computer can run a crippled version of vista"? Overall, I'm just saying that the intentions of this sticker were blatantly obvious.

But then look at my HDTV example. There are Different resolutions of Hi Def. 720p(XP) 1080i(vista basic) and 1080p(vista ultimate). Still hi-def is hi-def no matter how you cut it.

720p TVs (XP laptops) are advertised as hi def(compatible with Vista) along with 1080p and 1080i. So if I buy a TV (Laptop)that natively supports 720p(XP) and is 1080i compatible(vista compatible) and i buy a blu-ray player that supports up to 1080p(vista ultimate).

But 1080p(vista ultimate) wont work on my 720p TV(XP laptop) cause my TV(XP laptop) doesn't doesn't meet the minimum requirements to show 1080p(Vista ultimate).

But it meets the requirements for 1080i(vista Basic). By your logic I should then be able to sue the TV manufactures(MS) for advertising it as able to support Hi Def(vista compatible) in general. And in the future newer resolutions are coming out and it should be able to support that as well because the TV says hi-def and higher resolutions are hi-def as well.

But me as a customer being to lazy to ask questions or doing research to find out there are different resolutions is my problem not the TV company since the information is widely available in libraries, the internet, book stores and people.
