I believe you are thinking about the first ammendment, but yes, you have the right to sign an internet petition. No one is denying that. BTW it's "you're".

i had vista ultimate for a while and tbh i didnt think it was any different from windows XP exept for the Aero thing. the only reason for me to install vista again is for DX10 but DX10 is joke imo, the only game that looked better in dx10 was crysis but there is a simple mod to make it look like dx10 on XP, even on DX9 cards....

I used to hate Vista before I tried it. I heard tons of horrer stories of it, but once I tried it and found out about the changes to it, I switched and never looked back.
I agree. thought I would have problems with vista myself but figured I have a free copy of ultimate so why not.
tried it and everything works fine except for some modded drivers give me some issues. otherwise it seems overall better then xp.

not quite the same. just killing support for the product doesn't mean you have to switch. how many cars are out there on the road anymoer that aren't supported anymore by their maker?

No thanks I'll pass.
driver issues aren't always the fault of the OS. if a programer can't make drivers for his own product that isthe fault of the programer not the OS. yes the OS is different and has to be programmed different that doesn't excuse those programmer guys from learning how to do it right to match the OS.

microsoft can't just go ok everyone who owns something prior to vista has to upgrade. xp is no longer functional and we will force you. all they can do is not support it which by all means they shouldn't have to after a certain time. how long has it been? 7 years or so? that's a better warranty them most any other product has on it. I would quit your complaining. if your copy works fine then use it. don't complain cause microsoft is forcing your hand. they are not. you guys even said yourself. works perfectly fine and does what you need


I understand this might be hard for some of the kids here on this site as many of you only grew up with xp but when end of life happens your product still works. you can still use it just fine.
hell some of us old timers around here have used other operating systems. once upon a time they had products like , NT4, windows 98, windows ME, windows 95, and even windows 3.1 and 3.11 for workgroups, and even older then that that had this big black box thing that had no real graphics for the OS. it was called dos. Not this dos thing that kids are used to now by typing CMD in start>run but I mean a real OS based upon that. it still works kids. all of them do. they just are not going to spend resources and money on a product that has lived a long life.


now it just comes down to what is more important to you.

a)the newest latest and blah blah that comes with support but cost some money
b)a product taht has lived a full live no longer gets support but already is working?

you pick make it silent and quit *****ing about it.

I've been a Vista user since Beta 1, but I still use XP often especially in VirtualPC and at school. It's still a nice OS, even though it's a little annoying to use without the instant search which I'm used to in Vista. I wouldn't have signed the petition if XP didn't look so ugly with that default fisher price theme.

The same question could so easily be asked of you when you type like that.

so let me get this right. if they take XP off the shelf that means you have to install vista because xp no longer will work or something?

I really hope that isn't what you are implying as that would be a very wrong implication there and if you know much about computers that would be a stupid implication there.

if that isn't what you are implying then what are trying to get at by saying that you have to upgrade to vista if they take xp off the shelf?

the other question I have for you is why you would even try to put a OS on a system that doesn't even meet the required specs? do you really not know that much about computers? if so we can help you learn.
