Windows 95 was a major step up from Windows 3.1 or using DOS, and frankly it made sense that a little 386 would be incapable of running things smoothly on it.

But you know what, I have bitched and moaned about this for so long with no real reason to keep doing so, so I think I'm just gonna stop here... yeahhhh...
Okay, your computer was from '98. XP came out 3 years later, in '91. Vista didn't come out until 2007. You really expect software to run on 9 year old hardware? Of course they're not gonna support that.

First off, I have 2 gigs of ram.

Third, the NES and composite jacks.

If you have 2 Gigs of memory then why did you say your next build that comes with 2 Gigs and you would probably get it with Vista?

People like you make dumb comments like that and turn others off Vista when they hear BS like that. This creates a bunch of uninformed idiots crying wolf.

Now onto the point regarding your Operating system upgrades. You got a decent span but as improvements are made there obiviously going to require more memory at some point. I'm willing to bet if you built a new computer today in 08 it will run the next 3 operating systems that come out.

Arguing that Vista is a resource hog on some pile of shit I'd throw in the garbage is irrelevant.

Congrats on the Direct TV bro I figured a fool whining about something that costs $20 bucks wouldn't have such fancy future equipment yet.

As for the Nes I didn't think it came with them in the box. I dunno I guess I'll dig in my shed over the weekend and pull mine out and see if it did.

I have no intention of carrying on an argument over something we can all agree is pointless (which I'll admit, you've got me on some points there)

But just because I don't see a new OS as good enough to warrant new hardware, doesn't mean I'm all of a sudden so cheap that I would bitch about something as trivial as a 20 year old console not working on a new TV without a $10 adapter.

Don't start making assumptions, it makes you out to be a complete prick, even if you aren't.

I own an 8800GT. That costed $380 at the time. I didn't even need it, my games ran well on lower settings on a 7600GT.

I'll agree its a pointless argument.
