Default Re: Vista... to be or not to be?

Get vista but don't expect it to run well WITH ANYTHING. Also, don't expect to run windows without crashing along with having a huge % of your system devoted to stupid, unneeded crap that you don't need.

BUT HEY, YOU GET THE NEW OS. Aren't you happy?

Have you ever used Vista before?? No. So don't make more useless comments.

If you have a good enough system, Vista is great. And no, you don't need 2 gigs of RAM and a 8800GTX to run it okay.

Windows releases bad software, and then makes random people buy that bad software and then use their complaints to make it better... Then they release updates for all of these glitches and problems which makes you pay more and more.

So no, i don't use vista. I'm not retarded. Having a good enough system? A crappy and a good system, its still going to have useless crap that no one needs.
Well, why don't you go program an OS, and then have it work perfectly the minute of it's release??

There's obviously going to be bugs. It's the same with all operating systems, just for some reason Microsoft takes a beating for it..
