I do like the upgrade functionality within Vista. I could buy Vista Home, then upgrade to Vista Premium, then Ultimate.

All from the same DVD. Unless I misread something.....

All I hope for is that Vista doesn't become XP's version of Windows ME.

You mean forget Linux.

For the average user (and the majority), Linux just isn't user friendly enough.

Regardless of the distribution or what Linux users say, it doesn't even come close to Windows.

I couldn't finish that article. The bias is so severe, it made my head hurt. I'm a definite fan of macs, but that article sucked. I've read some other works of that guy some time back, and they were full of crap too. He's simply anti-M$, without any real information to back himself up.

Its not secret that onboard video does not have the horspepower needed for todays graphic technology. Its the same with Mac minis and OS X. They too, do not have the brawn to run all of OS X's eye candy. To build a nice machine and skimp on video...thats dumb.

Not really interested.

IE7 gets tabbed browsing and better security... almost as good as Firefox. Better looks... I can have a different look for each day of the week in Firefox with their themes. I think I'll stay with Firefox.

WMP 11... I don't really care as long as it logical, unobtrusive, and easy to use, and doesn't get any worse with digital rights management and wanting to phone home every single time you play anything. I think I'll keep PowerDVD for video and Musicmatch Jukebox Pro for tunes thanks.

I think Opera is far better than either Internet Explorer or FireFox.

It has a brilliant download manager, among it's many features.

I don't know what Linux does to certain people, but once they use it, they seem to think nothing is as good.

I'd love to see the average person try to install Linux.

Compare that to Windows, instead of ignoring all of Linux's failings and harping on about how safe it is and how little power it requires. ::


The average user doesn't want to learn command prompts just to install hardware and drivers.

Once Linux gets over that huge hurdle, if ever, maybe then it would have more mainstream appeal.

yeah he's biased against ms...but thats not the part of the article i'm interested in. its the hardware requirements that ms will be forcing on people if they want to run vista. I would say i have a fairly decent home pc, but i doubt it'll be enough to run vista properly. so whats the point? i'm going to have to buy a brand new computer if i want vista. so if thats what i'm going to have to do, i'm going mac.

i'm not praising linux. maybe i'm misinformed. but i could care less about vista, ie7, or wmp10. i believe there are better alternatives out there.

There maybe alternatives for you and for a lot of other people, but if someone wants all the HDTV features and bells and whistles, there really aren't many practical alternatives.

XP is pretty old as far as Micro$$oft operating systems are concerned.

Even games like Halo 2 for PC will need Vista, so you can bet this "trend" will be pervasive and most will have to "upgrade" sooner or later.


Anyway, as Vista hasn't been released yet, all this (especially that link) is extremely presumptuous.

This same agrument was used when XP was released too, though. Did it change anything? No, of course not. Nobody can expect the hardware requirements to not have changed in the last 5 years. That would be ludicrous. The article that guy wrote had a 2.8ghz machine with one of the crappiest onboard video chipsets out there.

Budget machines offer budget performance. I said it before, its alot like the Mac Mini and OS X. The Mini does not support all of the eye candy of OS X. So, the argument can apply to both sides.

XP by far has been the best OS MS has released, imo. i hope the success they've had with XP continues with Vista. I know I didn't need to buy a new computer for XP, though. but i'm going to be buying something new in about 6 months anyway.
