Will Vista Run on Your Computer? - Page 5

post #41 of 86
This is all crap.. I'm hanging on to XP for dear life. I <3 it.
post #42 of 86
why? according to what i have read, XP's core is prone to memory leaks and massive security flaws due to errors made in code.

Yeah right. There was plenty of "copy protection" on current DVD's. How hard is it to rip them right now? I'd say wait a couple of months after release and there'll be a plethora of crakcs, patches, and third-party software that will easily get around all of the extra :turd:. Probably even some software that will completely uninstall a lot of the "security/copy-protection."

I still won't be upgrading until patches/bug fixes come out from Micro:turd:, though. I don't want an unstable machine.

TBH theres going to be LOADS of hackers who cant wait to get there hands on vista to tear it apart and crack and hack every single particle of software on there, so within the first few months of release there will be cracks getting created, after a year all the microsoft bs to stop stuff will mean nothing.
Also i dont think it will be that bad because i rememeber people complaining about xp, its not that bad, we will just have to wait and see, but if it really is that bad? who the f*** is going to buy it. I think microsoft are proberly aware that noone will want to buy software that means they have to get a mortagae on there bloody house or sumin just to use it.

Sorry to say it, but this is total BULL HOCKEY.

Let's start with hardware minimum requirements. Before you even install Vista, you'll have to have seven gigs for it on your hard drive - compare that to one and a half for XP. That shouldn't be an issue now that drives in the hundreds of gigabytes are commonplace, but most people only have 256 or 512 MB of RAM. When you boot up Vista for the first time, before you start any programs, it will eat up about 800 MB. If you want to play games, you better have at least 2 GB of RAM. For higher-end games, 4 GB is going to become par for the course very quickly.
OK.... the truth is that the hard Drive space is unconfirmed. The minimum memory is 512MB, and vista wont use it all up... the setup optimizes it so it won't do that... 1GB is recommended for average gaming, and 2GB is recommended for hard-core gaming.

Okay, so there are reasons to upgrade still. For example, XP won't support HD-DVD or Blu-Ray; you'll need Vista for that. But in order to placate the piracy-paranoid MPAA, Microsoft had to put in a feature called PVP-OPM. Essentially, PVP-OPM means you have to have an HDCP (High-Definition Copy Protection) compliant monitor and an HDCP-compliant video card. If you have practically any LCD with DVI currently on the market today, it won't work; you'll have to buy a new one to run Vista. If you don't, you'll get a message that says "Monitor Revoked" and you won't be able to see anything on your screen. In other words, if you just dropped $1000 on a Dell 2405FPW, you'll have to upgrade to the HDCP-compliant 2407FPW to run Vista. I'm sure Dell will be happy to get your money a second time.
Not true.... you will still be able to play videos on those discs at a low resolution... It's in the May 2006 Smart Computing magazine, and they are more reputable than this source.

On top of that, you'll need a new video card, because even though many manufacturers were touting HDCP-compliant video cards, they were essentially lying about the cards' capabilities. You may have read about this scandal a few weeks back; suffice it to say that companies like ATI are now producing HDCP-compliant cards, but that they weren't just a short time ago and that even now you have to check that the card supports HDCP before you buy.
You can run vista fine on a 6200.... You don't necessarily "need" a new card... And the companies didn't lie... they just made a mistake.... Some of the cards work, though.
Quote:
At that point you'll go from being mad about having to upgrade so many components to downright confused about what to get, because there will be twenty different versions of Vista.
EEEEEEEE Wrong.... There are 5 confirmed versions....

lol. did anyone here about the patch apple released to allow users to run xp on the intel core duo macs? tons of people are discovering that their mac is stuck on xp and they cant boot tiger until they reformat the whole thing. and apple doesnt care because its a "beta" version and they dont offer tech support

Apple -1

P.S., theirs no way that first article is right becuase that machine will cost 1200 dollars just to run vista "ok" and no one is going to do that. all of this is just speculation and its driving me nuts
cant complain..

Because I have NEVER had a problem with it. I've never had XP crash (i've had programs crash, of course, but never the OS itself), and the only time I've seen the BSOD is when I pushed my memory to far. I also use a Apple G3 iBook, and OSX has crahsed more times in the 5 months I've had it than XP is crashed ever. XP is the best OS I've used. (Except maybe FreeBSD).
