  1. I have done no such thing!

    I have only downloaded that which is available on Windows Update!

    I have done no such thing!

    Every service that is set to run by default is allowed on my Vista and XP
    computers! I have turned nothing off.
    WOW! Maybe that is why I don't have the problems that others are having!

    Obviously! You have to do this with any operating system if you have older
    hardware and an operating system that uses newer driver technology.

    I have done no such thing!

    *****Continues at the bottom*****

    When I send a 6.7 gig file either to my Windows XP computers from my Vista
    box or to my Vista computer from my Windows XP box the file transfers at
    above 90 MB/s on a 100 MB/s wired LAN.

    When I image my Vista computer and save the image on my Windows XP box, the
    information transfers at over 50 MB/s, being constrained only by TrueImage
    itself - not my LAN.

  2. Horse manure.

    People tweak and twitter till they kill their operating systems. I do
    nothing special to my O/S's (other than keeping them up to date with the
    supplied updates) and have little to no problems with either Windows 2000,
    Windows XP or Vista.

  3. That has always been a major part of Microsoft's strategy and philosophy. I
    remember when Bill said sometime in the late '80s that writing efficient
    code wasn't important, given that we could always rely on hardware advances
    (that's a bad paraphrase, but accurate nevertheless). He emphasized
    It always has.
    Somebody needs to go to jail for fraud.
    How many people have the problem that it supposedly solves? I have only one
    client who uses any desktop search technology regularly -- and he'll
    probably stay with Google's when I deliver his new machine this week. I'd
    be surprised if, on average, my other clients have used search more than
    once in three years. With winsxs (just to name one disk space hog) growing
    by leaps and bounds, and with performance and disk space at the top of many
    users' lists of priorities, it makes sense to me to disable it on most
    True, and LLTD probably can be disabled, too. But if you're going to use
    Vista for networking, you might as well use all of it because Vista
    workstations will be your administrative machines. However, LLTD does offer
    new opportunities for security problems. See


    and 1529, too.
    I gotta quit now. My fingers are getting numb :)

  4. Yeah, but if you're like me then you'd buy it no matter what because you've
    gotta have that hot new toy that just came out.

    Can't remember the last time I bought an OS or a MS app... I have an MSDN
    Were it not for my job (which exposes me to the latest and greatest "stuff")
    my computer experience probably wouldn't stretch much past email and
    browsing. I'd prob XBOX or PS for gaming.
    In other words I'd prob still be a Win98'er

    * Richard Urban:
    Okay, Richard. I know dam well that folks have experienced network
    problems when transferring files between computers or a server when
    one of those computers is Vista, I've experienced it numerous times.
    I am not lying, nor is it my fukkin imagination. What's quite funny, is
    that I can open my XP virtual machine in Vista and transfer files quicker
    than Vista the host. There was a hotfix I recently applied that seems to have
    improved the situation, I can't recall it at the moment. But, applying that
    hotfix and disabling IPv6 *did* help.

    I use it for a production operating system daily, without any issues, maybe
    it's you and not the
    operating system, maybe some night classes are in order.

    It'll sure do email and let you order pizza!

  9. Stalking and misrepresenting what I have said again.
    You continue to seem incapable of posting without your attacks.

    "Shove the crap it is the OEMs problem that Vista sucks."
    I never said that, but twisting others words seem to suit your agenda
    seems necessary for you.

    "Reason? You mean excuses."
    There you go attempting to change my words again.
    NO, leave it as written.
    Customers have a CHOICE and different CHOICES have different costs and
    Perhaps you do not like CHOICES that can lower the cost of computers,
    but many like and appreciate the CHOICE.

    Instead of stalking and blindly posting criticism after twisting the
    meanings, try posting something that will help the OP.
    Your absence of constructive information by you for the OP is obvious.

  10. "short list of hot head MVPs that should be recalled"
    And yet it is you who is stalking and attacking.

    Stalking again while contributing NOTHING to help the OP.
    I suppose you never contact Microsoft at the appropriate address with
    your complaints.
    You seem to be a complainer and deficient when it comes to action.
    I could be wrong, but I doubt it.
    But then you would need to identify your own stalking and minimal
    contributions with your complaint.
    Jupiter Jones [MVP], Jun 12, 2007
  11. They're YOUR words. Perhaps taking a writing course on how to
    effectively communicate would be of benefit to you. All I ever see you
    doing is whining, grumbling and tooting your own horn. That's a
    blowhard in my book.
    Yet here you are attacking me. Again. Hypocrites are always amusing to
    watch spin out of control mainly because they have no idea how others
    see them.
    This thread hasn't been on topic for weeks. In fact the OP was simply
    ranting. You and other blowhard have used this and many other threads
    like it to bluster, whine and bellyache or in terms you may
    understand, further YOUR agenda. Heck, that's all I ever see and a
    handful of other blowhard MVPs ever do here. In cause you're so dense
    that you can't figure it out, let me help you understand. You're see
    as one of the dumber fanboys. Meaning you always blindly defend
    Microsoft, so in you attract criticism, stop and pause to consider WHY
    you attract critics.
    More of the same old pot calling kettle black.

  12. You don't like me because I got your number. I know how your going to
    respond before you do. I've dealt with losers like you not just for
    years, but DECADES. You constantly exhibit all the traits that
    Microsoft frowns on MVP having. Yet here you are day after day
    bellowing and pouting. Your problem is you can't control your temper
    and it makes you fume that somebody has the nerve to tell you.

    I agree with all your points.
