[inquirer] Intel won't touch Vista - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Guys, its probably because they would actually have to make drivers that werent POS for their GPU.
Oh and they would probably have to upgrade 60% of their computers to have IGPs that can run the Vista Basic theme.

But i vote drivers.

The security (UAC) annoys people, the responsiveness is comparable to XP, and the "better memory management" doesn't make up for how much RAM it actually uses.

If RAM is needed then Vista will unload applications so that others can utilize the free memory. Its a very Dynamic system and it seems most people have not got a clue when it comes to Vista.
don't take it personally...

When the RAM is needed, Vista just dumps these applications to the page files. It doesn't actually "unload" them. This results in a much slower system when running memory-intensive applications.

What do you? Browse the web? Send email? I can do the same on my 133MHz Compaq with 16MB of RAM...

3DS doesn't support Vista yet so that is why most engineering companies don't use it.

The fact that you think UAC is only security improvement is...Disturbing. The boost in responsiveness is obvious, and even more noticeable on old computers. Putting cached data into the page File would only increase disc usage.

Remeber people, Vista is home users. Intel is a company base. Why would they use "Vista" when they can use A OS like > Windows server 2003 > 2008 (once its out and stuff) or Any type of Linux server OS.

I'm doing the basic > Surfing the web, listen to music & play lite games <, and I always disable page filing in XP. I think page filing is a joke simply because it uses your harddrive has virtual memory. If we all know when this happens, the more the harddrive is used, the more power is used and the more slower it becomes because the more the harddrive is reading & Writing AND the less the program can actually do its thing.

If your on a laptop and have XP with aleast 1GB of ram. Disable PF, its not worth it if you do basic surfing, listen to music and maybe lite gaming (Games like Need for speed 5 and HP2)


I knwo this has nothing to do with this thread, just thought I would post it here
