Update – (9/18/06)
I decided that I’ve been a bit unfair, and have been running this on my Dell Latitude D610 laptop.Â
It’s not bad, if I close my eyes and let my mind wander it’s almost mac-like, which is a plus.Â So I’m getting more and more comfortable with it.
Then I install Antivirus software on it…..and it does nothing but bluescreen now.Â I guess McaFee thought Vista was the virus and tried to clean it. 🙂
It’s been several years since the version of windows a friend called “Xtended Pain” came out, and I guess it’s about time for Microsloth to grace us with a new travesty of an operating system.
Here is an example of my first experience with Vista:
So we have it.Â The great sucking sound that is Vista.
Not to mention that once I was actually allowed to log in, more than 50% of my system resources were taken up by the operating system.Â And this was no toy computer, on a Dell Precision 380, 3.0Ghz HT, 2G Ram, simply moving the mouse brought the CPU to it’s knees.Â
Vista is what it’s name suggests.Â View – or looks.Â It’s all eye candy, and amazing that Microsoft manages to make Windows more and more “Mac-Like” and yet still manages to miss the performance the Mac is capable of.
I’d like comments on the Vista OS.Â I know it’s off topic, this being a more storage centric blog, but sometimes you just can’t help but point out the obvious. 🙂
