    I didn't notice before that these are going to so many news groups.

    What a perfect way to advertise that fact that those of you thinking of
    buying Vista (better known as XPVistaBaby (as Arnie might say it)), you can
    just get the upgrade version irrespective of what you have on the current
    PC, even if you have nothing on it at all.

    Because you can make Vista upgrade from itself. Just do the install, don't
    enter the key and don't register. You get the trial version apparently,
    then upgrade that. Saves you a bit of money doesn't it. Oh, and if you
    speak arabic, they already have a fully cracked version apparently, so just
    wait for that to come more readily available.

    Detailed instructions for this install can be found in a search, there is no
    risk, other than the risk all MS software carries, which is
    All-Entry-PC-Access of cause.

    Disclaimer: I found the instructions on the net but haven't tried them
    myself and have no plans to do so, but feel free to look them up, Bill can
    afford to miss out on a few quid here and there.

    Yep. Vista is such bloatware that people have to buy new computers to
    run it. What else is new? This is the normal operating procedure for
    Microsoft.

    It's good though. It means that perfectly good used computers that will
    cleanly run Linux or FreeBSD will be even more cheaply available.

  4. An amusing statement given the recent suggestion made by numerous LinTards
    that Linux should be preinstalled on hardware that supports it if anyone
    intends to try it out.

    That means purchasing new hardware.

    The point that comes to mind, is why purchase new hardware to run Linux
    DUNG when you could run Vista?


    I'm all in favour of recycling. You can build your home out of old used
    glass pop bottles as well. I remember as a child seeing several of those in
    the Backward U.S. states.

    Oh, you poor poor wintard. Thanks for exposing your sheer incompetence
    before the entire world. Your caretaker should be more careful with your
    meds.

    Hey, dingleberry, *you're* the one who said Vista was driving the sales
    of new PCs. Uh... remember? Why do you suppose that was the case? Could
    it be Vista wouldn't run right on the *old* ones? Like, uh-UH.

    I'm pretty sure the reason it has been suggested that people buy
    preinstalled Linux is because folks like you have so much trouble
    "grasping" the concept of installing Linux. Perhaps some day you'll
    evolve opposable thumbs and will be able to "get a grip."
    And yet, as you said, Vista is driving the sales of new PCs. Reality is
    a bitch, isn't it?
    Sure. I could run Vista on my 366 Celeron. Do tell.
    How cute. You're trying to be "clever."
