[Giz] Intel Skipping Vista - Page 8

post #71 of 92
wow... the writer said things like "bff" and "tight". I don't think I want to trust them

but as far as I'm concerned, Intel is using XP because it still uses less resources than Vista, right? I'm not sure, but I think vista still uses more.

Gizmodo is a blog rather than a news agency. That's why when I post things from them I link to the original article.

The only problem with your argument is that Vista has had so many years to be developed. Then is comes out and sucks. It would have been okay had it come out in 1 or 2 years, but the 5 years it had? C'mon now.

They scrapped the original design halfway through. That tends to increase development time a bit.

intel would be better of sticing to XP. getting used to the while new GUI and so called security enhancements that it offers is (restrictions in my eyes) is just not worth purchasing an upgrade to Vista Ultimate. XP is good enough for them. it gets the job done. so why upgrade to something they dont need?

Which is fine, they continued to improve XP while creating Vista so I didn't really care that a new OS hadn't come out in a while, but I was incredibly shocked and disappointed when Vista came out and it wasn't even usable for the majority of computers on the market.

I mean look at 2000 -> XP

Windows 2000 Professional
  • 133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU.
  • 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM recommended minimum; more memory generally improves responsiveness [4 gigabytes (GB) RAM maximum.]
  • 2 GB hard disk with a minimum of 650 MB of free space. (Additional free hard disk space is required if you are installing over a network.)
  • Windows 2000 Professional supports single and dual CPU systems.
Source

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are: •Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)•At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)•At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
Source

See, with the exception of the lowest of low end PCs running Windows 2000, most win 2000 PCs could run XP. Now XP -> Vista (Home Basic)

  • 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 512 MB of system memory
  • 20 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space
Source

That's a huge step up! Most business bought the lowest end computers that could hand XP and 2000. My dad's computer at work runs off a 750 MHz P III with 128 MB of RAM and 10 gigs of HDD space. I'm going to assume that 75-80% of big businesses have computers somewhere close to this. In forcing the death of XP, I hope that companines will start looking to alternative OSs. Windows may have shot it self in the foot.

For my girlfriend/mother/ anyone not computer savvy, Vista is great. I even use it on my sig rig. But for work. Both home and at my job, Vista just wont work for me. XP is the way to go.

Not a great argument. Everything in technology is taking a HUGE step forward.

I have one PC running 2000 at work, and thats because the software the computer is for needs it. The rest of the servers are well enough capable of running Vista. It's just that the software we run wont work well with it. We'll be sticking to Windows Server 03. Soon enough, our new software will come out to run on Vista, because thats what happens. Go with the flow of technology.

And, as is, any company out there that needs XP for their business, already has it.

The time isn't the only downside though. They ditched a lot of great features when they started over with Vista.

Computer tech is exponential. Looking at the CPU requirements, they doubled in the 1.5 years between 2000 and XP. They quadrupled in the 5 years between XP and vista. Sounds about right to me.
