    I like Vista & after some tweaking it works just fine!

    I had some problems with: Tv card,3ds max,archicad,alcohol,firewall,miranda,foobar... etc,but after some "tweaking"(and update turned on) it works just fine!

    Goodbye XP!

    I do like it, and it brings fixes to many of the problems I had with XP. However, it is still windows, and still a resource-hogging sloth of an OS. I gave ubuntu a test run a few weeks ago with some problems (which is to be expected when migrating to a new OS), and went back to vista. But after working with it more and more and seeing the rapid degradation of performance (despite regular maintenance and system tweaks), I have decided to make the transition back to ubuntu. It will be a pain in the ass because I will have to format all of my ntfs drives, but I will manage.

    I tried Vista (both 32 &64 bit versions of Ultimate...) and after the initial oohs and aahhs decided it just sucked.
    I had high enough levels of hardware that I could run it with no issues (I am not going to jump on the "resource hog" bandwagon- after all, I bought the stuff so it could be used) but the changes from XP seemed increasingly arbitrary and needlessly intrusive.
    I had UAC turned off within 10 minutes...

    Now triple booting XP Pro (32 & 64 bit) and Ubuntu (v.7.10).
    Completely lost in linux so far but that was expected so it doesn't bother me like Vista's eccentricities did.

    My parents just bought a new laptop (Core 2 Duo 1GB RAM Intel GMA) a few months ago, and it came with Vista pre-installed in it... It's slow, especially when I started installing softwares (KAV, Office 2007, Nero, Photoshop, etc.) in it and when I tried enabling its Aero 3D effects, which sucks... I just got sick of it and got sick of Windows' vulnerability when it comes to security. So, I reformatted my parents' laptop and installed Ubuntu in it and everything has been smooth ever since.

    As we all know, Linux is all about security and you almost don't have to worry about viruses... It's much faster compared to any version of Windows... Also, it has a great file system and you never have to defragment your hard drive... It's also fully customizable and you can make it look like almost anything you want it too, and you can even have a 3D desktop environment with Beryl/Compiz (click here for the video)... And the best thing about Linux is that it's FREE and you don't need a new/fast computer to run it... It also runs flawlessly in my girlfriend's old Pentium III desktop and my Pentium M laptop and I don't think I'll ever going back to Windows again.

    I got a free copy of Vista Ultimate from MS, so I gave it a shot. First legit OS I've owned in years.

    On the computer I was using - Pentium D 820, 1 GB DDR1 400, ATI x1950pro - it sucked. It was slow, and hogged almost all of my RAM.

    On my new built - C2D E6600, 2GB DDR2 800, ATI x1950pro - Vista flies. It's actually faster than XP.

    If your system is under powered you're gonna hate Vista. If you've got power to spare Vista is great. MS tried to push the bar a little bit, and many people hardware isn't up to the task yet. I see it being another year or two before Vista gets wide spread acceptances by most people.

    I hate pimping sites but is where I got my free copy of Vista Ultimate (and a zune, lol). When that site first opened there was a lot of cheating going on and well... I had as much fun as anyone. MS runs the site and they are good at spotting cheaters now. But, if you can stand playing sucky flash games though you can still get some good prizes for free. They don't have Vista Ultimate anymore but they do have Vista Home Premium and a really, really nice keyboard and mouse set (blue tooth) that I would love to get.
