One Year of Using Vista -- It Does Nothing Better than XP For Me

    Some people like Vista.

    There is nothing in Vista that improves the way I work, and Office
    2007 was so much worse than Office 2003 that I removed it.

    I know Microsoft doesn't listen or care, but many people agree they
    really failed to deliver the improvements people wanted in their new
    software offerings last year.

    I like Vista. Aero beats Luna any day, and I can finally get off that
    classic theme I've been using since 1995. On a PC that can run Vista
    and run it well it's a pleasurable experience. I've been using it at
    work lately on a pretty powerful box and I've gotten spoiled by it.
    You're right tho, there's nothing about it that improves my
    productivity, it only makes that productivity more enjoyable to look
    at.

    Office 2007 runs great for me personally. People I know that have it
    give it generally positive reviews. The ribbon is a little weird but
    I'm getting used to it.

  3. I find that XP Windows Media Player has so many problems
    that I switched over to Ubuntu.

    their word processor makes RTF documents, the audio player works,

    all the parts are there

    And for me I really can't see being saddled with Microsoft Products.

    Then why are you in the MS forum period?

  5. I agree with all of S.SubZero's comments. Vista and Office 2007 have been
    good experiences for me, and I wouldn't want to go back (although I use XP
    on my laptop).

    And many MANY more agree it has delivered.
    The world IS more that your personal view.

    Vista improves the way I work.
    Office 2007 improves the way I work
    Your View
    My View

    now what?

    Probably like me. Wasted money buying Vista (once). Wants to let others
    know you don't have to run Vista. There are alternatives, older XP, Ubuntu,
    SUSE, RedHat, Fedora and others.

    indeed, curious that

    the utility of a computer is secondary to the import of their politics.
    the activist needs to be against SOMETHING :)

    these people don't co-exist well

    its their way and DEATH to any other way

    Mr. Arnold Guest

    I have not wasted my money with Vista. One cannot help it you don't know
    what you're doing. You couldn't even be a programmer and ran from that. Now,
    you're standing up in a MS NG talking to me about Linux? How ridiculous is
    that? I don't think so.

    Mr. Arnold Guest

    I am going to say one other thing here. I see you hanging in this NG and the
    Advocacy NG, and you're hanging out here on the Internet just a little too
    much for me to even respect you. With that said, I think that there is
    something wrong with you mentally. You may wind up in my killfile.

    All you've really accomplished is to prove to everyone here what an
    incompetent whiner you really are. In fact and unless you're a liar
    (which you proly are), you having stated in here that you're an IT makes
    you all the more an incompetent, inept, whining loser.
    But I figure those facts won't stop a fool like from further proving
    what a complete fool you are.

    I heard that Microsoft is working on a new system to replace Vista next year
    because of the problems in Vista. Does anyone have information about the new
    system?

    executioner Guest

    That's so damn funny coming from some jackass that insists he be
    addressed as Mr. Arnold. No doubt about it, there is something
    mentally wrong with anyone that demands he be addressed by mister is
    such an informal setting as a Usenet newsgroup. So pal, take a hike
    and don't let the door slap you in you in your big fat butt on your
    way out. Your pompous ass won't be missed. A certain pig named Arnold
    from Hooterville got and deserved more respect than some smug up tight
    wingbag like you.

    And being answered by a fukkin drunken pig going by the name
    "executioner'!...LOL!

    No doubt about it, there is something
    And there is something very mentally wrong with a person using 'adam
    albright' when he isn't.

    So pal, take a hike
    Crawl back into that pig pen you've manage to escape from you stupid,
    ignorant piece of shit!

    Your pompous ass won't be missed.

    You are the biggest pompous ass to ever post in any ng.

    A certain pig named Arnold
    You're the original mr drunker pig. You fat little ignorant asshole loser!
