    Did you not read the article?

    "We can get people online without the installation disc," he added. "It's
    not that it does not work, it's just the disc."

    It's the disk that is the problem not Vista........Why should Microsoft be
    responsible for making another companies disk work?

    whining again.
    they have had weeks if not months to bring their programs up to SP1 status.
    and have failed.

    it is not vista sp1 at fault.

    I am convinced, Vista is another Windows ME (garbage which should have
    never been released).

    Dave, ever consider MS should have made Vista more BACKWARD COMPATIBLE.
    Their lack of that consideration is ONE of the reasons Vista has not
    made M$'s expectations for sales (Vista is a flop).

    Maybe you should see if the broadband suppliers in question have solved the
    problems they were having in Vista. That article is a year old. It was
    written a little over two months after Vista's release. I'm pretty sure the
    broadband suppliers have updated their installation discs by now :)

    At some point in time you got to let go of yesterdays technology to make
    room for tomorrows. Each new version of Windows (or any OS) will have
    incompatablity issues with older programs and hardware, if it didn't we
    would all still be using DOS (or what ever). If you have things that need to
    run on yesterdays hardware or software use yesterdays OS.

    I personally look forward to the OS of the future.........not complain about
    what doesn't work from the past. I want my halo deck baby! and making an
    OS use my older software/hardware wont get me there. Vista is just one
    stepping stone to my halo deck. Could you imagine what people would do if we
    just went from DOS to XP? Baby steps people baby steps!

    Having an OS that pushes hardware manufactures to step up to the plate and
    build faster equipment or software companies to design software with newer
    features is fine by me. As it ultimately benifiets us all in the long run.
    YES there will be bridges to cross and but that in my eyes are expected.

    There are many alternative OS's one can use if they don't like the way
    Microsoft is headed. Whinning about it wont change a thing, if you want
    change hurt them where they will listen, their pocket! It's simple just
    don't buy Microsoft use Linux.

  9. Bullshit.

    Plenty of other companies have no trouble ensuring backwards
    compatibility in both hard and software. They take pains to do so because
    they play in a competitive space and failing to preserve their customer's
    existing investments would result in losing those customers.

    Even Microsoft used to do this back when they also faced competition.
    How long did they keep that old 16 bit DOS stuff around exactly because they
    needed to preserve compatibility?

    Bah. I just want something to route I/O. You can keep your wizards
    and fancy graphics.
    You're putting the cart well before the horse. The OS should
    transparently support existing hardware and software while presenting
    a stable and extensible platform that allows APPLICATION developers to
    wrtie advanced applications. Years of "Of course the browser is part of
    the operating system!" have skewed your viewpoint. Needing faster hardware
    to drive a new application is reasonable. Needing new hardware and new
    applications to drive a new os at the same or lesser performance as the
    current configuration is bullshit.

    You really don't have a clue, do you? Why don't you ask someone for
    help in solving your problems?

    I find it amusing that the smacktards always seem to try and use these
    outdated articles as proof that there are all these problems with Vista.
    Guess they nothing better to do huh?

    The fact that these smacktards continue to whine about Vista on this
    forum demonstrates they have nothing better to do.

    Dear -none, On the Bridge, cheen, thetruthhurts et al-,

    We *DON'T CARE* that you hate Vista. You're a minor annoyance at best;
    you're not changing anyone's mind with your whining; we find it mildly
    amusing that your technical proficiency is so lame that you still
    haven't figured out Vista.

    Don't you get it? - you look like fools with your posts. Whine to
    someone who cares and get a life...

    Both of you are whining about the whiners. Nothing better to do with
    your time? What's worse, your whines are just tired old clichés.

    Personally, I don't whine about Vista because I don't use it and am very
    happy with Ubuntu, a much better OS than Microsoft will *ever* produce,
    whiners or not.

    Will that be fries with your order?

    No fries but just that you have a job you can start saving

    Thank the Lord that Microsoft finally stood up to third party apps that take
    control of the OS and rape its reliability and security.

    I have NEVER let a network provider touch any computer that I actually care
    about. I always give them some old PC that I don't mind them destroying.

    Notice how they admit in this article that "you don't need the disk to use
    the network services". In other words, there is nothing wrong with Vista
    other than that it prevents these providers from wiping out your computer's
    settings, hijacking your browser, your email client, your security software,
    and who knows what else.

    Thank you, Microsoft. Maybe these network providers will finally back down
    and let you use their services without installing their crappy software.

    Unfortunately, history has proven time and time again that zealots will
    continue their moronic tirades no matter how retarded it makes them look. In
    their twisted little realities, they seem to think they are doing everyone a
    great service. In actuality, all they prove is that they have exactly zero
    credibility, and make themselves appear to be nothing but petulant children
    throwing a temper tantrum.
