Ladies and Gents no software is uncrackable, for in the very nature of it being software its crackable.

They are already cracking vista, and playing with it to crack it etc.
And the truth is given.

SP2 was quite unstable and full of bugs when it was first released.. however, it is much better now than SP1 is.

Whats odd is.. i've seen computers running SP1 for about a year upgrade to SP2.. then run horrible! but when I do a clean install of XP, I find that if upgrade to SP2 immediately, it runs perfectly..

Guys, gals....Vista is not going to suck. Just because you've BETA tested it, does not make it sucky. I mean, you are using a BETA test....they are meant to suck, so people can give feedback on improvements to the company. That's the whole point.

I work for Dell, we got a sneak peek at the final copy, and I've got to say that it is pretty sweet. Tons of improvements from the beta test, and is an over all very good Operating System.

If you want something free, go get Kubuntu, Ubuntu, or Xubuntu.

Ahhh, Ubuntu. I love how you can run it off of a disc.

hey can you use adobe afteer efefcts, have you got any links to good tutorials

I think That companies like microsoft are ripping people off , for instance i am doing an IT course at school and i am making a database,spreadsheet, powerpoint presentation and so to compete mt homework tasks i would require copies of theese programes at home, sure microsoft try and help out by releasing a student and teacher edition priced at $149 but all it includes is
excell,powerpointand word,
to get access you need to buy the profesional edition which costs about $450 which is obviously not an option and worth more than my computer . so realy i have no option other than pirate version, i have tried open office and it is good but the access databases are all messed up
