Sorry Folks But, Vista Has Already Been Superseded By Windows LIVE

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by The View Master, May 24, 2006.

  1. ....U Jus'Don't Know IT, Yet!

    Hosted Applications, Subscriptions, Computers w/No "Hard Drive", The Fabled
    "Network Box", Shortly (Within 1-2 Years)...

    The "OS" (Operating System) WILL BE On The Server Side (e.g. Windows LIVE) &
    U Won't Even Know What The OS Issssssss... It'll Jus'Work!!!

    Everything, ...& I Mean, E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G, WILL Be On The "Network" (e.g.
    Windows LIVE) Servers!

    Yeap! It's Back To The Future, 1995:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_computer

    It's Jus'That, NoBody Has Told You, Yet!

    Is This a "Bad" Thing? Uh! Nooooooooooo!

    In This New World of "Network" (e.g. Windows LIVE) Computing, Is There
    REALLY a Need For Vista? ...Probably NOT! (Your Data Is Not Going To Be On
    Your Personal Computer, Anyway! It Will Be Hosted On a Server, Somewhere!)

    Windows Vista Is Already Made Obsolete By Windows LIVE For Your "Personal
    Computer"! ...Bypassed By The Steady Advance of Technology!

    U Know I'm Right About This! U Might NOT Like It But, U Know I'm RIGHT!!!

    I Know It's a Bitter Pill To Swallow w/ALL The Time, Effort & Money That,
    Has Gone n'2 Vista But, It's O-V-E-R!!!

    The OS (Vista) WILL BE On The "Network", Not On Your Personal Computer!

    This Will Soon (w/n a Year+) Be Yesterdays' "A majority of these
    services
    (probably all) require an internet connection, not all 1 billion Windows
    users are connected to the Internet."

    It's a NEW Computing World, Buddy!

    Wednesday, 24 May 2006

    In what has come as a complete surprise to the global IT users community,
    Microsoft has released beta 2 versions of its 3 main product lines, Windows
    Vista, Office 2007 and Longhorn, its Windows server product, indicating an
    increasing air of urgency at the company...

    Have you ever seriously considered investing in bridges? I just happen
    to have an outstanding selection (Brooklyn, London, Bay, etc) at very
    completive prices. A little down and reasonable monthly payments.
    Financing is always available for those who qualify.

  6. Frank! Pardner!

    I Know What I Saying Is NOT Gonna Be Particularily Popular, Especially HERE
    But, U Know I'm Right! U Don't Like It But, U Know I'm RIGHT!

    Consider: n'a Year Or 2, Your NEW Computer WILL NOT Have a "non-volatile
    data storage device" a.k.a Hard Disk: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_Drive

    I Guess Vista Will Be The OS of Choice For Those "Legacy" Personal Computer
    Systems That, Still Have a Hard Drive?

    Moores Law, ...AnyOne???

    Well I for one will continue to build and use pcs with multiple hard drives.
    And multiple operating systems.

    Can I add the Sydney Harbour Bridge to that 'for sale' list Frank? ;)

  8. "Legacy" PCs...

    It's O-V-E-R!!! U Jus'Don't Know IT, Yet! (Think, The Network Box, Er...
    Windows LIVE!)

    On a Side Note: It Was Hotmail Back In The 1990s That, Got This ALL Started!

    The March of Technology IS NOT a Respector of Persons, Companies, How Much
    Time, Effort & Money You've Put n'2 Something (Vista), Etc...

    Expect Change To ACCELERATE!!! (Starting Tomorrow)

    That, Is ALL I Can Say, 4 Now!

    Hello!

    All PC-s with classical hard drives are already legacy. Check this out:

    Will you buy one?

    New Samsung Notebook Replaces Hard Drive With Flash

    Is the hard drive history?

    Samsung Electronics said Tuesday that it will launch two mobile computers in
    early June that will do away with hard drives altogether, replacing them with
    32 gigabytes of NAND flash memory. The notebooks will be the first to use
    flash memory as the main storage device...

    But, This Isn't The "Whole" Story! ...Merely, A "Piece" of The Story...

  15. The "OS" (Operating System) WILL BE On The Server Side (e.g. Windows LIVE)
    And...how exactly are you going with connect without an OS already on your
    machine?

  16. Gee, what a silly question ...

    What will happen is the motherboard makers will start bundling a small boot
    loader into the BIOS of the machine which will recognize the hardware and
    connect to the Live service.

    Of course, they'll need a UI in case the user's network settings are a bit
    off and require some user intervention.

    And then there'll have to be some kind of driver mechanism for hardware the
    bios doesn't recognize, which will necessitate some sort of removable media
    support on the computer -- maybe a floppy or a CDROM or something.

    Pretty soon after, they'll start making the BIOS UI more robust as newer
    hardware comes on the market, and the UI will get slicker and have more
    features. It may even use your mouse (wow!) and could even put your video
    card in a graphic mode to really make things pretty.

    Then because each M/B manufacturer was using their own code and interface,
    and hardware manufacturers were getting increasingly angry, some standards
    committee will be assembled to unify the functionality of the BIOS UI and
    its driver interfaces. More likely, some upstart software company will
    develop a superior BIOS UI that all motherboard manufacturers will license.

    Eventually the BIOS code just won't fit on a chip anymore, so some internal
    storage unit will be required. Usually the cheapest forms of storage will
    be supported first. Computer manufacturers might even preload the BIOS UI
    onto the internal storage unit.

    For performance reasons, applications will start to be written that can run
    directly from the BIOS UI. The BIOS UI developers will start documenting
    their API's and let 3rd party developers write applications for it. The
    BIOS UI will go through many revisions, and eventually support multitasking
    and could even take advantage of some of the nifty VMM features of the CPU.

    The internal storage unit will have to get larger as more and more
    applications are written and users want to store some critical information
    on it in case their internet connectivity is flaky.

    It won't be long before someone writes a spreadsheet application for the
    BIOS UI, and then its all over. Nobody will want to connect to the Live!
    service to run their "true" OS anymore.

    I'm sure glad View Master hasn't thought this all the way through -- he
    could make a killing in the BIOS UI business.

  17. CAUTION: Objects In the Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear!

    "Ozzie is now spearheading a transformation of the company, this time to
    "Webify" everything."

    "The company has to build massive server farms all over the world to host
    its future Live Drive service, where the company plans to keep all of your
    information -- from emails, movies, to tax information -- and make it
    accessible from anywhere on any device."

  18. Well... yehh! :eek:)
    And also, Bill Gates doesn't run Microsoft at all - he's just the chairman
    of the board of executives - the employee's technically own Microsoft seeing
    as they all have shares in the company.

    I am not sure of all this talk of replacement of pc with OS or getting rid
    of storage.

    There is always need for cheap PC for some people to have access by using
    pay as you go. However there is also people who want full control and
    ownership of their information hence wants their own storage.

    Sure there is the network, but would everyone put all their personal and
    financial info out on the net for crooks to crack and profit.?
    not till the day there is proof positive there is no software bug and
    vulnerability, or no more crooks. We know the possibility of that in the
    near future.
