  2. Microsoft is a Business, would, say, Audi give away their new Model because
    it's better than the others for free? No.

    I can understand the sentiment and even some of the logic in this
    article.
    Has anyone seen any prices posted for the Vista upgrade to Win 7?
    I evaluated the Win 7 public beta and was very impressed. When Vista
    rolled out I had 3 pcs to upgrade from XP. At $150 each I paid $450
    to get our home pcs up on Vista. I am not looking forward to another
    $$ outlay like that this soon. For us Vista runs smoothly with 3 pcs
    on ethernet. Really no issues at all. We use our pcs for a lot more
    than just email and surfing and Vista has not given us any roadblocks
    along the way.

    Would Ford give rebates along with Firestone? Yep, they sure did.
    Something about the cars blowing up.

    Vista is a piece of steaming shit and that's the reason that Micro$lut
    should give Vista SE, aka Windows 7, to Vista users for free. It's
    called PR and that, my clueless friend, is something that Micro$lut
    needs quite badly to continue to make a profit for their "Business".

    Read the article and then maybe you won't look so foolish. I can well
    afford Windows 7 and you have no proof other than your twisted and lying
    imagination.
    I never was "crippled" but you are one to tell the truth, now are you, liar?
    Or maybe you're an idiot who can't keep track of time and don't realize
    that you *never* see me posting here in the morning because that's when
    I get all my work done.

    Got any more jealous lies you care to share?

  7. I did read the article. You just don't like my comments. Typical for
    someone who perfers Ubuntu. Your world is skewed.
    Using Ubuntu cripples production for most. Not for you because you don't
    do anything.
    Oh that makes sense. Your three companies only exist in the morning. Must
    be pretty small businesses.

    1st company - Alias
    2nd company - Alias and his dog
    3rd company - Alias, his dog, and his bong

    Is that about right?

  8. The reason you think Vista is a steaming pile is because you don't know how
    to use or configure the product. That gets you frustrated and then you call
    the product shit. If you could just take a class or stop smoking pot then
    maybe you could understand the product. Also, if you had the right hardware
    you wouldn't have problems trying to install a new product on old hardware.

    You always blame others for your idiotic mistakes.

    Wrong again.
    Wrong again.
    I have the right hardware:

    ASUS MB M2V
    2 gigs Corsair 800 RAM
    PCI-E nVidia 9800 GT 1GB card.
    Hey, lame boy, MILLIONS hate Vista. There's a reason and it isn't
    because you make up stories about them like you just did here about me.

    If you had read the article, you wouldn't have made such stupid comments.
    Of course not. It's just you being infantile as usual.

    I don't **** your relatives, sorry.
    LOL! Good one! I guess that's why hardly any businesses use it.
    Not too broke, have a copy of Ultimate and Vista is easy to use.
    You should get lost because you are the most disgusting, cowardly and
    lying troll here.

    Why on earth would anyone voluntarily spend $450 to upgrade to Vista
    from XP? Wanna buy some beach from property in Kansas from me?

    Well did you?

    Maybe they should just sell it for $49 period. It's just 'fixed/trimmed'
    Vista anyway right ?

    XP SP2 was a free upgrade to XP. It also added features and was not *just*
    a fix.

    It's obvious that XP-to-Vista was a major undertaking, therefore, major
    cost for MS, but Vista-to-Windows7 is no where near that cost.

    Tell us how you know how much cost Microsoft incurred developing
    Windows 7.

    You're the only one that refers to a sheep by name.
    Where have you been, under a rock?
    I wouldn't bet your ass on that one, skippy (not that your ass is worth
    much).
    I never admitted to any of the lies you spew including this one.

    Win 7 will sell well enough when the time comes. It runs well on lesser
    machines than did Vista.

    XP users will have the same problems as those who moved to Vista re hardware
    and software compatibility. For Vista users, the transition will be much
    less painful.

    Some XP and Vista uses may not like some of the new features. Life is like
    that.

    Costs.. XP users with old machines will buy new with pre-installed Win 7.
    They will feel the cost of the software upgrade far less than all others,
    but it has always been that way.

    Nobody but congenital freeloaders care really..

  20. Not sure about the seeling part but it certainly runs better on lesser
    machines.
    Not sure about the migration issues for XP users, but I agree the
    transition will be much less painful from Vista, on performance alone!
    Congenital freeloaders... that's some prejudice you have there, Mike.
