What Absolute Junk Vista Ultimate 64 bit OS is

    This is my second time around testing Vista ultimate 64 bit and after much
    testing I cannot believe what a heap of absolute rubbish this OS is. How
    many years did it take Microsoft to develop this junk?

    I have the latest drivers/software/ quad core intel 6700 CPU with a modern
    motherboard and running 8GB of RAM. Yeah....I anticipate that you are all
    screaming and tearing your hair out and gnashing your teeth because I have
    told the truth about this piece of OS junk.

    Vista Ultimate will not remain stable if you load and use a substantial
    amount of software on your computer. Yet both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of
    XP Pro are relatively stable.

    I am a business man and I can tell you that vista is unreliable and a total
    waste of money. In fact microsoft should pay anyone to use this piece of
    rubbish and the amount of time wasted attempting to trace down problems.

    Vista is much slower than XP Pro and XP Pro 64 to boot up and shut down.

    I don't care how much you microsoft certificate guys hiss and boo....Vista
    Ultimate 64 bit cannot compare in efficiency and stability to XP when you
    load the OS with numerous heavy duty applications, eg Photoshop CS3 etc.

    Even the CPU company Intel will not run vista on their computers (google
    it!!)

    Vista would have to be conidered along with Windows ME as the worse OSes.

    Cheers

    You must not be running much software on your pc with your listed 160GB
    Seagate hard drive. I have a total of 4TB internally!! My vista ultimate
    partition alone is 200GB.

    Are you running a business on your PC?

  4. If you are running programs/software that is not
    64-bit, then you need to use the 32-bit version of Vista.

    no as a matter of fact im not.....:p

    i can assure you though there is no app on earth which will stress the
    OS & H/W more
    than what you see in that pic....regardless of how much overall storage
    you have i bet your machine is still not up to the task.....

    i know you have a q6700
    what else....?

    hmmmm......


    get a new PSU..... according to the specs it has 18A on the 12v rails
    ...min for an 88GT is 28A ...

    have you run the power calculator for all your peripherals...?
    could be a lac of power causing instability.. (could be wrong)

    apart from that its a nice rig....

    not looking for a flame war mate but many use the OS with no
    problems...

    They didn't even run Windows XP on their machines until 3 or 4 years after
    it came out. Nothing new.

    Actually no. Most of us have probably just put you where you belong:
    in our kill files.

  12. This is my second time around testing Vista ultimate 64 bit and after much
    Blimey, mate, steady on! OK, so I'm only using the 32-bit Vista Home
    Premium, but I've gotta say that it is TOTALLY, ROCK SOLID. I've had the
    odd application crash, but Vista?..... NEVER.

    There's something wrong with your hardware or your drivers.

    Despite Vista glee club out there most reviewers have published opinions
    about Vista 64 that are not much different than skunksmash's experience.
    Doubtless a small number of users are able to get by with Vista 64. I
    suspect they spend more time tweaking the OS than actually doing real work
    on their computers.
    XP 64 was never anything more than an experiment. In its present state Vista
    64 is not much better.
    Vista 64 is not reliable for mission critical computing with available
    software and drivers. Most peripheral OEMs only got stable Vista 32 drivers
    a year or so after the OS was released, most devote nearly zero effort to
    the 64 bit version.
    I enjoyed the post concerning 64 bit software: Adobe is promising a 64 bit
    version of Photoshop for Vista but I am sure they will have to specify
    compatibility with a specific range of hardware because of driver issues.
    Game publishers cannot even write for DX10 so I doubt that 64 bit games are
    high on their to-do list.
    Raw as Vista 64 is Adobe is supposedly not even working on a 64 bit Mac
    version of Photoshop because the Mac programming tools are even worse than
    for Vista.

    Hey that's not fair. I mean, if some random business man can't manage
    to make his computer work, it must be the computer's fault.

    I'm running x64 with 6GB of RAM on my desktop, x86 on my laptop, and
    have servers running 2008 x64, 2003 x64 and x86, plus a couple older
    boxes around.

    I honestly can't remember the last time I had a bluescreen that I wasn't
    able to track down to a bad driver (nVidia, I'm looking at YOU) or bad
    hardware (Antec, normally I love ya, but that NeoPower was a pain)

    I really think this depends on your hardware. I had some issues when I
    went to Vista x64 many moons ago, but on my most recent reinstall (with
    a new Vista SP1 DVD), I had zero issues. Nearly every device was
    working out of the box, ATI (video), Canon (printer/scanner/copier) and
    HP (colour laser) all had x64 drivers available that were as up to date
    as the x86 drivers.

    My attempt on my laptop was not nearly so successful.

    On my particular hardware, I'd highly recommend x64.

    Ron, how are the drives mounted, in other posts you mention 4TB on line.
    I use removable SATA trays (The skeleton kind with no inner case) and
    even with those and all case fans possible installed I get heat problems
    with more than one large drive in there.

    So is Home Premium 64bit, junk I mean........and to top it off I have to
    purchase a faxing software or a fax machine, either will cost me more
    than what Vista cost me.
    And to think that even xp home edition had a fax console that worked
    like a dream.

    The business version includes Fax software, complete scheduled backup
    and BitLocker encryption. I'm guessing it may have been worth a fe
    moments to check what is included in what version..
