Who is running Vista?
Posted 06 June 2008 - 09:42 AM
I am running it on my laptop. Personally, I will not revert back to XP. At first I really hated it, but by time I got used to it and it has some good functionalities that I like over XP. Personally, I find the Aero thing cool, but that for sure is not the thing that is keeping me from reverting back to XP, but yeah it can be quite cool.
There are quite a few things that do annoy me for example the resources that they take. In order to format my laptop I had to install XP because I only have a vista recovery disc, and XP ran so fast on my laptop, took no more than 3 seconds to bootup and no more than 7 minutes to install, but Vista of course takes quite sometime to install, but it's quite fast to boot. Another thing that annoys me is the fact that when you install an update and reboot it does not boot, it just displays a blank screen, then I reboot and it boots ok.
But so far no incompatibility issues for me and DirectX 10 ROCKS!
What are your views/comments?

However,some functionalities i do like more than vista and i just love the environment so i am not gonna change it for now but i am rather sure i would think different if i had been using less ram
For the more advanced stuff like virtual systems where i need more ram, i still use XP.

I did notice some odd things happening with Active Perl and Cygwin.

Home Premium. Once he got used to it, it's worked perfectly with all his peripherals and software - I don't know what the fuss is all about.
What version of vista is your dad running?
