  3. Reading the link URL it is a site worth reading. I have bookmarked it
    and will read it this afternoon after I have had dinner.
    Vista is a problem O/S and word is starting to get out about it. I
    will stick with it for the while as I cannot afford a new O/S at this
    time.

  4. Do you think anyone will notice that leopard doesn't run on a PC so they
    must be Mac users that are buying it.
    I wonder why Mac users would be upset by Vista?
    A none Mac user who wanted leopard would have to buy a Mac, this would come
    with leopard if they wait until it is released so they wouldn't pre-order
    leopard.
    Are all blog writers as stupid as that one?
    Are all blog readers as stupid as David for posting garbage?

  5. Typical response from Frank. Facts he simply can't deal with so insult
    the poster. You're some pitiful excuse of a human being Frank. You
    expect us to believe you run a company with the temper and attitude
    you keep showing us? You couldn't run a shoe shine box.

    Right after I type this I am sure Adam,Alias, Tiberius and others will chime
    in arguing the point but what the hell !!!......Just because Vista may not
    work for you does not mean the majority of people are having problems.
    Geez ya frickin doofus why on God's green earth would somebody who just
    spent a fortune on a new computer go out and do it again for a "pussy"
    computer that cannot do what a windows computer can do ??? For instance just
    how many games can you run on a Mac, 2 ? 3?..Vista has some glitches...No
    one here is denying the fact that it is not perfect....Was or is ANY op
    system perfect ?? Don't even think about saying xp or you will just admit
    that you are an amateur when it comes to computer's because xp was not and
    still is not perfect (research it if you can )..How do YOU know that Vista
    is not being or will not be fixed ??...20 yrs from now op systems will STILL
    be plagued by problems...Why you may ask is that they are man made and that
    in itself explains it !!!....Crawl back under your rock Troll and don't come
    out until you can show VIABLE PROOF that Vista is worse than any other op
    system including those made by Apple who names there computers after pussy's
    !!

    I was expecting this... it will get far worse for vista...

    You all will see how things will unfold. Vista will bring Microsoft to a
    very difficult position.

    People are fleeing from Vista because its the worse piece of CRAP ever made
    by Microsoft, surpassing
    the stupidity of windows Me and even Microsoft Bob (that was cute at least!)

    Ubuntu 7.10 now is being downloaded are record numbers.
    People are demanding XP specifically on very new computers....

    Vista is a disaster AS I MUST REMIND YOU ALL I HAD PREDICTED EVEN BEFORE IT
    WENT INTO RTM
    (14 months ago)?

    The fanboys had no clue why the heck I was bashing vista... they still have
    no clue.. although their ears are perking up
    from news all over the world pouring in on about how much everyone hates
    vista and the majority is avoiding it.

    It was that I was bashing their godlike crap OS, that's why they closed
    their ears, and no one listened... its time you listened now.

    Fanboys have surgically removed ears and eyes though, they only have a big
    blabbering mouth.

    A close friend of mine just ordered a very high end PC from Dell.

    THE MOST IMPORTANT THING SHE DEMANDED was
    NO VISTA!

    XP ONLY! lol

    She was lucky, others had dell demand an extra $400 to install XP pro,
    with no vista.. but that was when dell was still following the orders of big
    brother Microsoft.

    Im sure Dell is selling more XP computers now that Vista computers...

    anyone have any data on this hunch?

    Vista is such crap... I love the fact that everyone wants to find
    alternatives...

    GREAT. Vista stinks and it should be avoided. Completely!

    Well it is hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.


    For example the same guy who wrote that claims that Beryl is impossible
    to install except for real geeks (or words to that effect) (Article
    linked on that page).

    What this proves is the author has not devoted any time at all to
    trying, in fact there's now no need to even try, as some reply posts
    point out.

    His suggestion is to keep using alpha versions of other software to run
    on XP. Yes, I can see that being great on a work machine.

    I think you should stick with it rather than buy XP, it will work if you
    can wait for things to get sorted out, but make REGULAR backups using
    Acronis or something.

  14. Don't get excited..
    what it shows is that a larger number of Mac users are dissatisfied with the
    current OS X and are eager to buy the new one and fix their problems.
    It can only be this as you have to be a Mac owner to run leopard.. no PC
    users will pre-order leopard as it will not run on their machine.
    M$ would love to be able to get mugs to pay for a new release every year
    rather than give the service packs away.

    The same could be said for XP. They think XP Was bad and upgraded to Vista.
    Then after Installing, they go back to XP and say newer and much hyped is
    not always better.

  16. That's what newsgroups are suppose to be for. Sharing opinions and
    having discussions. I just threw that in since the fanboy gang and
    MVPs thing this group is suppose to be limited to a cheering section
    for Microsoft.
    I agree with you. Surprised? The point is it makes no sense for hoards
    of people to make a post and simply say wow, Vista is great for me, I
    love it. This place again is suppose to be to discuss issues. Got any?
    You think Linux is for pussies? Better tell Google. They use Linux to
    run their lightening fast search engines. So does NASA. Hell, this is
    suppose to be a secret, but so does Microsoft for certain things.
    Shocked?
    Faulty logic. I don't play games on my computer. I'm not suggesting if
    you do that's bad or that you're just an overgrown kid, just that
    playing games isn't a good gage to judge how well a OS functions. For
    some things yes, all, hell no.

    Your all OS's have bugs is lame and no better then little Billy
    saying, mommy, mommy, Frank gets to stay up to 9:00PM can I too?

    The point being Microsoft being by far the biggest and richest
    software developer it is fair to expect them to do better then others.
    They don't. Why not isn't that they can't, they won't as long as
    rummies keep saying oh look how prettier Vista is. If you accept eye
    candy as an "improvement" and say what the hell all operating systems
    have bugs and Windows never ran right when first released then
    Microsoft says to itself, why try harder, the rubes are happy as is.

    I hope you enjoyed your rant. I had fun disproving everything you
    claimed.

    But they are not running just any version if Linux, in fact, they are
    not using the residential grade of any linux version.

    Perhaps you can supply the link that gives instructions how to install on a
    regular PC. I would like to try it out before committing large amounts of
    money to buying a Mac.

    Lunix will install on my machine without any extra outlay on my part.
    Perhaps MacOS will too, and we just never knew how.

    Hmm. Orders for the new Mac OS are double those for the previous version.

    Two times a small number is still a small number. Nevertheless, I am
    heartened.

    I do hope Apple can lure away the two or three hundred malcontents that
    continually rag on Vista.

    That way, those of us remaining can have an enjoyable computing experience,
    unencumbered by the slavering rage of those with nought else to do.

    I wish them well.
