Vista sp1 86% faster than vista RTM

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by On the Bridge!, Mar 5, 2008.


    I told everyone here that Vista SP1 is around that much faster, but of
    course it still is slower than XPSP2
    not to mention XPSP3 that is even faster.

    What people are REALLY saying about Vista:

    50 Ways to leave your Vista....


    You just format the drive , Clive
    Get a New Mac , Jack
    Y'don't need that crap toy, Roy

    Boot from a *nix, Jix

    I have been using SP1 with Vista Business edition for several weeks and I do
    not see any difference in performance.

    LOL, my new Santa Rosa MacBook came with a lot of useless iCrap that I wish
    I did not have to pay for!
    BTW, Vista SP1 runs great on the MacBook via VMware Fusion.

    Rubbish. SP3 is merely a rollup of existing patches, plus some very minor
    polishing. There is nothing in it to alter its speed.

    Temper temper.....
    Steve, I think that was what they were saying that SP1 for vista was too..

    am I right or am I right? :) Oh yeah Im right.

    hey I havent tried XPSP3 yet because Im waiting for RTM, but here is whats
    all around the internet
    I am always up to date with everything.. thats how I know so much and thats
    why people in here
    keep scratching their heads with some of the stuff I say... its ok.. Im used
    to being far ahead of the masses..
    even the mvps :)

    10% is a small difference, its not noticable very much...

  6. "Since SP3 was supposed to be mostly a bug-fix/patch consolidation release,
    the unexpected speed boost comes as a nice bonus," Barth said. "In fact, XP
    SP3 is shaping up to be a 'must-have' update for the majority of users who
    are still running Redmond's not-so-latest and greatest desktop OS."

    According to the Office performance benchmarks, Windows XP SP3 is also
    considerably faster than Vista SP1. "None of this bodes well for Vista,
    which is now more than two times slower than the most current builds of its
    older sibling," said Barth.

  7. It isn't considerably faster across the board at all, but internet and
    network performance may be marginally better than before because of the
    inclusion of a network bug fix..

  8. im just happy to see that people are holding on to the best version of
    windows ever, XP,
    and that ms will be releasing Ie8 for XP too.
    This is irregular.. for example they did not let ie7 be installed on win2k

    on xp they let ie7 ie8 and if windows7 is a flop too, ie9 too to be
    installed on XP.. lol

    There's a new course I'd like to recommend.

    GOOD! Have you tried using it? Because you are capitalizing each word in the
    above sentence, which is wrong of course.

    What sentence? That was a title. Ever read a book, watch a movie, or take a
    college course? Obviously, you missed the whole point.

    I did not capitalize "every word", as you so blindly assumed. However, as a
    retort for my comical way of pointing out that you failed to properly
    punctuate your entire reply, I hope it eased your bruised ego. On the other
    hand, I interpreted it as "No, I'm not, you are." :p

    Your serve. Try to keep the ball in the court this time.

  14. Sorry, I am not aware we are having a grammar test while we post on

    Here in Usenet its not the better speller that wins, but the smarter poster.
    You must NOT know by your stupid assumptions, that spelling has very little
    to do with
    intelligence. On the contrary geniuses are often dyslexic, some show signs
    of autism too.
    Even your pal Bill Gates is said to show signes of Asperger Syndrome, a mild
    form of autism.
    (see )

    Furthermore you are even MORE stupid in assuming that English should be
    known perfectly
    from any person in the world. A world that has thousands of languages (6900)
    and in fact ENGLISH is a language of a MINORITY (first is Chinese of
    course).. *lol* since English comes 4rth in the list of most common
    languages world wide. See source

    This is the internet baby, not a spelling bee... its a mesh of cultures and
    people and minds..
    you have to start thinking like a universal creature and leave your limited
    perspectives behind.

    Furthermore the language used over the internet is a special ever evolving
    case, that's full of new
    ways of expression and does not always follow strict rules. I cannot use
    "LOL" in a book, but I sure can use it over the internet.. LOL.. see?
    You have lost before we begun. Im slaughtering you! LOL

    How did you come to that conclusion, other than pulling it out of thin air?
    What test criteria did you use? How did you time the results? Please let
    us know.

    If not, than what you say is just crap. Just FYI

    "On the Bridge!" got off the topic, again...
    Who said anything about spelling? I comically criticized your complete
    failure to punctuate, with apostrophies, commas, or periods.

    Your first rebutal was to claim the title was an overly capitalized
    sentence, now you defend you lack of punctuation by accusing me of
    critiquing your spelling. One again, you completely missed the point, and
    changed the subject.

    Generally speaking, anyone replying to my previous two posts, quoted above,
    the way you have, also quoted above, gives the impression of permanent
    immaturity. Whether or not this applies to you personnally, I can't say, as
    I have only your posted comments to go on. I'm going to suggest you resign
    the game, throw in the towel, fold, retreat.

    There's a quote I enjoy, "I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed

    Now, that's a perfect example of the permanent immaturity syndrome. Bravo! I
    couldn't have proved it so completely without your devoted assistance. :)
