    it's funny why vista requires hardware about a year ahead of time whereas the same candies offered by mac was available like 2 years ago. M$ programming so bad?

    software that is technologically advanced ( advance way ahead of hardware) that why must use one year ahead of time hardware

    Been using it for the past month, got the Business license provided by my school.
    It has been pretty stable so far, performance is comparable to XP or even better.
    Problem is that software like ACDSee doesn't really work well with Vista, but they've promised updates soon, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for now.

    Most likely I won't be upgrading to Vista for a variety of reasons. I just got a MB and I have no intentions of running Windows in it. Personally, I think by doing so, it kinda defeats the purpose in buying a MB in the first place.

    As for my old Acer, I think if I install Vista in it, everything will just crash instantly. Of late, it has been running extremely slow after I installed IE7 and Office 2003.

    My plan is to use External SATA and install Vista on a totally separate Hard Disk. As and when I need to use XP, I can easily do it.

    Don't know it it is possible onnot. Can anyone advise?

    Once I get settled in with Vista, the XP disk can be formatted and be used for data.

    juz read this & can't help but agree with the other angry mob:
    http://www.theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=37331

    here's one for "easy" reading.
    If Microsoft gets away with DRM and EULA this time around it will be the biggest (and most pervasive) worldwide corporate coup in history, bar none.

    As soom as you load MS VISTA OS, your computer, hardware and software, is GOVERNED and REGULATED by Microsoft policies. None of your precious (expensive) apps and DATA will run without it, specifically. If you think that this takeover hasn't been a longterm goal of MS, your sadly mistaken. They have chipped away users rights, a little at a time, with each sucessive OS upgrade, with planned obsolecence as a catalyst for the entire industry as a whole. VENDORS don't care what Microsoft does as long as thet can sell their wares. They sold out years ago with WIN95. SO DID YOU!

    Federal, State, and local Governments have LESS to say on ANYTHING you own. Can you imagine re-purchasing your land because you added a two new bedrooms? Re-purchase, and re-register, and re-insure a car because of new tires, brakes, or transmission changes?. Think I'm being extreme? How's about building a $350 bare bone machine running an OS's that cost more than the entire machine itself. And, it's only good for that machine, even if its' a DOG! MS has made more money than ALL the hardware vendors COMBINED! Give it away to a school? THEY PAY MS AGAIN ON THE SAME DOG WITH THEIR MULTI USER AGREEMENT. THEY MADE TWICE WHAT THE MACHINE IS WORTH WHEN NEW!!!!

    Make no MISTAKE, Microsoft has implimented a carefully planned, well executed, TAKE OVER of the PLANETS computers(and information) with NON EXISTANT competition. EXTREME? Anything you do with a computer is with approval of Microsoft agreements. This includes buying a new machine, how and what you load, and now, what you copy on it. Further, the applications' authors have paid MS for the "rights", too! Everybody pays MICROSOFT!

    This is a wake up call for the Feds to bust up Microsoft fot the huge, inherently pervasive, monopoly it HAS become. Why? They have more control over your machine and whats in it than the FEDS. Hell, they have contol over the FEDs computers! Trillions of dollars of hardware rendered obsolete by MS's marketing push for more and more revenue, and we give hardware control to them in the process! The Worlds' computing changes at the will of MICROSOFT. Wonderful! The EU is Not going to tolerate this, neither should we.

    The time when you bought an OS and it was YOURS will DIE with XP. The next step for MS? Timed Licensed Agreements. OS monthly/Yearly billing; just like your electric bill or cable where you don't have a choice. BUT THIS WILL BE WORLDWIDE!!!!!! READ: BIG STEADY INCOME FOR MICROSOFT. Jesus, sweet, Jesus, this is only an OPERATING SYSTEM!

    THE NEW WORLD ORDER/TAKEOVER ACCORDING TO BILL GATES. NOW YOU KNOW WHY THEY CALL IT VISTA. IT OPENS NEW VISTAS FOR MICROSOFT.

    UNCLE SAM, HELP US, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! CALLING STEVE JOBS: I'M COMIN' OVER BABY!

    yea the DRM sucks.

    no vista for me ever.

    eh a separate thing here, if I want to get a new laptop from say HP but I do not want the operating system, can it be done? And will it be cheaper? Cuz I remember in one of the clauses in XP says that if it comes preinstalled with the pc and you do not want it, you can claim the amount from the manufacturer.

    If Vista's EULA is similar to XP's then you should be able to get your refund.

    The online version of the Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition EULA states, "You agree to be bound by the terms of this EULA by installing, copying, or otherwise using the software. If you do not agree, do not install, copy, or use the software; you may return it to your place of purchase for a full refund, if applicable."
    How someone managed to get his refund from Dell.

    Mitchell was careful to document that he did not run the Microsoft product or accept the EULA. "I booted the laptop, then photographed every step of the boot process up to and including clicking on the XP 'no I don't accept' button. I also scrolled through each page of the EULA, taking a photo of each page," he wrote in an e-mail interview.

    Not at the moment.

    Wait for service pack 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and various security patches to released then I upgrade 1 shot.

    Still remember Win2K, lost count on the number of upgrading patches i did.
