Loved that scene, really sad they won't continue the series. Thought there was supposed to be some special show to end everything this year.

Oh yeah, now I'm turned over to the oh-so-holy-there-can-only-be-our-truth side again. Vista sure is shit - based on "factual information" from a comedy show.... and because "I read it on the interweb, and everything on the interweb is always true"...

Pfff.... As(s) if.

You have to try harder, Paul. You're starting to sound like my yapping, annoying ex-girlfriend.

Vista is still the best and most solid MS OS I've tried, yet.

That's 'cause the bad stuff is lurking on other PC's. Or.......it could be the Kryptonite for your Vista OS is defunct.

frosty, i wouldn't say vista is the best os microsoft has ever had but it isn't nearly as bad as many would want people to believe. if the rig has the proper hardware, vista is rock solid. there's no doubt about that. was it released 3 or 4 months too early? yeah, it was. i didn't' like waiting 3 months for hp to release drivers for the laser printer i had just just purchased but when i got them, that rig was nice. it seemed people running xp with 512 mb's of memory thought vista would be fine on their rigs but it wasn't. those same people thought putting xp on the W98 rigs that had 64 mb's of ram would be ok too. it wasn't. i used vista from the day it was released to the day Windows 7 was released and the ONLY issue i ever had was having to wait on drivers for that laser printer but i used my deskjet printer in the meantime.

i'm now running W8 and although i don't like the loss of the aero effects, i'm hoping neil will find a way to return them to th eos with the release of WB8. if it doesn't happen, i reckon i'll live without aero.

I've never claimed that either, but Vista is the best MS OS >I have used<.
A lot have another opinion, and hurrah for them for that, but basically I really don't give a fuck.
Only my own opinion counts for what I choose.

if the rig has the proper hardware, vista is rock solid.

And if another OS runs like crap on the exact same hardware setup, as Win7 did on my Vista rig, only a completely and utterly brainless moron would use Win7. There were plenty of those around, also here on WinC.

(looks around on the general public)

Think I'm referring to you?
Well, if you're thinking just that, then I am.

I liked Vista... when I went from 32 to 64 bit, and SP1 was released, Ithought it was the bees knees.  Thing is, Snowy, I didn't have the issues you had with Win 7, so it became my primary OS and Vista was relegated to my second rig.

I have Win 8 Pro x64 installed as my primary OS these days, and while it is getting ragged like Vista did, I'm finding it rock solid and a pleasure to use.  Win 7 has now been relegated to my second rig and Vista has been installed on the guest rig in the spare room... cos I has a soft spot in me heart for it and XP will never see the light of day in this house... ever.  If I wanna see anything Fisher Price looking I'll get it out the kids toy box.

meh, o/s's. Use one that works, skin it silly, drive it 'till the wheels fall off.  Rinse and repeat.

I like you......you're silly.

On a lighter side......I ran XP on my first desktop up until SP3 then Vista showed up on my second rig. Worked......meh.....not that great...hang ups, freezes and the like...it was bloated, 3.2 gigs of space it took up as compared to 7 which takes up half that. Thing is my second rig, store bought, an HP Pavillion was supposedly built with Vista in mind. Then a friend of mine asked me to check out her computer which ran Vista. She took it to the shop and the tech 'said' he fixed it, he didn't . All he did was install MalwareBytes, which does not like Norton too too much, cleaned up a few things but did not solve the problem. It still hung up and froze on ocassion. So out with Vista and in with 7. She hasn't had a problem since. To be fair though I do know some who still have Vista and swear by it and like starkers relegated it to a secondary rig in favor of 7 as a primary OS.

This stuff goes all the way back to Win95. Some loved it, some hated it. I hated 98 but loved 98SE, it worked as good as XP. What it all boils down to is this. IMO...there will always be a love/hate relationship with Microsoft OS's. Like Win8 it works good for some and the rest it will act like an expensive door stop.
