  3. Nonsense.

    The items they list on both links you provide do nothing to make XP with SP3
    better the Vista, if anything it is just a catch up on some Vista technology
    being back ported to XP.

    Lets just take a quick look at them.
    "New Windows Product Activation model: no need to enter product key during
    setup. Thank God for that!" - Vista has had this since day one.
    "Network Access Protection modules and policies have been brought to XP
    after being one of the more-well-received features in Windows Vista" -
    Already in Vista
    "New Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module - the Windows XP SP3 kernel
    now includes an entire module that provides easy access to multiple
    cryptographic algorithms and is available for use in kernel-mode drivers and
    services." - Already in Vista
    New "Black Hole Router" detection - Windows XP SP3 can detect and protect
    against rogue routers that are discarding data. - Already in Vista

    And while I comment further (NDA's etc) - I can say that the gap between XP
    with SP3 and Vista with SP1 just widens further (in favor of Vista) when
    they both ship Q1'08.

  7. Another of your posts hiding as information but just another excuse
    for you to throw names around.
    If information was your motive, you would leave off your name calling.
    Your inability to communicate without such is a continued reflection
    on your character.

    There are many that believe as you and they can communicate without
    the need to prop their own insecurity with name calling.
    Leave it to them, they are far better at it.

    As for "Vista fanboy excuse to get Vista"
    Exactly who are you referring?
    I see this type of post a lot from you as well as a few other critics.
    But rarely are there posts suggesting people need Vista.
    Do not confuse someone liking Windows Vista with saying others should
    get it.
    However exaggerations are sometimes necessary with those insecure in
    their own positions.

    Read the article.
    It is an improvement on Windows XP.
    Whether it makes Windows XP a better option than Windows Vista is
    another thing.
    For some it will, but in most of those cases, staying with Windows XP
    is the best option.
    For others it will do little to make Windows XP suitable instead of
    Windows Vista.
    Also read a little about SP-3 from other sources as well, not just the
    ones that you think have your bias.

    People continue to have a choice and choice is usually good for

    Not so. XP is an OLD operating system. The world has moved on since then.
    Try Ubuntu for a real modern operating system.


    Remove Vista Activation Completely ...

    Do you use Linux? Everytime you "google", you're using Linux.

    Coming Soon! Ubuntu 7.10 ... New Features:
