You can burn home movies too you know. Todays society sickens me sometimes.

Vistas looks were quite alright and with the right specs it ran like a dream. It all depends on which package you get and with Vista and Windows 7. Ultimate IS THE ONLY WAY FORWARD.

Vista never sucked... it just required taming... and like with unruly dogs... sometimes castration is the only way forward... if you catch my drift (I kinda deleted 10% of my WINDOWS folder :))


There is no such thing as the perfect person, only those who love perfectly.

Never really bothered with it since I learned that it cannot work with older hardware/software and since I am still using both, no Vista (or Windows 7 for that matter) for me . . .

  • It's not Windows 7
That's about it for me. Unless you want to get really specific with how it burns DVDs it's more of how prefab computers with Vista were really screwed up. Mine was built by my brother and it ran fine, though slower than 7.

I find self built PCs to your own spec is better than PCs bought from the worst PC sales people in the world (PC World, Currys...and other useless shops although Maplin = WIN) (Well...most of them are stupid and just paid to look good and sell PCs that are over powered for what they need it for or under powered)

I've always heavily heavily disliked Windows Vista for various reasons. It was such a pain in the a** to get it to connect to a domain and then properly work with the various applications. The reason why Vista wasn't a success is because of compatibility issues, thats a huge reason why very few in the business world moved to Vista, a huge majority stuck to XP.

I happen to like Windows 7 quite a lot. It's what Vista SHOULD have been. When Vista was released it had 1600 known bugs....that's way too much, even for a brand new operating system in the RTM status.. But Microsoft had to push it out the door as fast as they could.

Yeah, the prefab installs are .... ****e really. But thats becasue the companies put soooo much CRAP on it like free Norton and free unknown dvd burn programs and all kinds of trials cuz they get payed for that. I build my rig myself, ran vista and now win 7 like a charm. So, if you want to beleive me, build ur own pc, or, ifyou buy one, IMMEDIATELY reinstall a fresh copy of windows on it yourself :P

Hello to all of the forum, I'm new here so I thought I'd chime in on this topic.

Vista was annoying mainly in one aspect to me, and that was the changing of the ability to "record what you hear" or the "stereo mix." I write music as a hobby (orchestral type game music) and I actually relied on that as a means of layering some pieces. This was fixed in Windows 7 with some manufacturers offering a driver update I believe?
