Sorry but that is more paranoia than anything.
Also Ubuntu isnt perfect. Actually it is far from it. With in a week of 7.10's release there was already 1 flaw found and a major bug found. the flaw being that it over works your HDD and the bug is with anybody who runs a 6800 series card.
So everyone has a negative experience with Vista...i still have to ask why it is only here that i see this? Of all the other forums i regular there is maybe 1 person who has any kind of issue with Vista. Of all the applications i have tried there was maybe 5 out of all that i couldnt get to work on Vista. So really what is the problem? Put simply if you dont like it DONT FREAKING BUY IT. Do what 50% of the world is doing and pirate it. If you like it later on then buy it. I mean seriously this is so old and tiring to see all this Vista bashing when in another 2 years when Windows 7 is slated to be released all the talk will be how great Vista is and how bad Windows 7 is.
Seriously people can we stop this marry go round? Cause it happens EVERYTIME a new Windows comes out. It is old and pathetic to see this arguement every few years. Everybody said the same things back when XP was released. But no one remembers that or cares to admit that they said the same things back than. No thye just praise XP for being a God Send and bash Vista....so bored with this same conversation that happens every release of Windows.
If you dont like it dont use it. Stop preaching to people about how you dont like it and how bad you think it is. Because not everybody has had nor will they have the same experience as you.
they are not forcing it. not that's funny
just give me my money back on my store bought copy. I don't use vista. I use to dual boot it. I've been wipe it out.
I have a dell that came with vista. I wipe it and put media center on it. give me my money back on that too
you ain't going to see the kill switch through their in house spyware anytime soon. it will be awhile. the simple fact is it's there. just because you haven't seen it and you were a beta tester doesn't mean anything. it was design for you not to detect it. it is a ms exclusive. they enable it in a year or two whenever the money stops rolling in.
anybody that think that vista was design from the ground up know little about computers. longhorn was kinda designed from the ground up, but it didn't work. period. so they went back to the xp drawing board.
vista is nothing but xp with extra's. vista lovers are going to argue differently but nobody is going to produce proof stating otherwise. vista 32 bit was suppose to overcome the 3 gig limitation. guess what? it didn't.
why is everybody ignoring the winfs question? that was suppose to be the main advantage of vista (longhorn). copernic seems to have it down pat
