    Default Windows VISTA - the "real" meaning?

    been surfing around the computer forums lately and saw some funny interpretations for the Windows VISTA "acronym".

    "Virus Inside - Switch To Apple!"

    "Vast Improvements Similar To Apple!"

    how many else can you think of? =P

    tongue in cheek humour hor, no OS flame-wars please

    found these

    "Viruses, Infections, Spyware, Trojans and Adware"

    "Virus Infection and Spyware Transmission Architecture"

    "Vista Is Software To Avoid"

    "Vista Is Superb Technological Achievement" (lol)

    here's my attempt

    "Viciously Infuriating Software to Acclimatize"

    how come you have so many boxes of it?

    btw, are OEM versions legal to buy and install? (i heard the vendors have to sell you some hardware parts in order to qualify it as OEM?)

    Windows Vista Ultimate
    The most complete edition of windows
