[QUOTE="Papageno"]\nDid you read what I wrote? I said that Vista was NOT designed for older\ncomputers, and you're NOT expected to install Vista on one of them, and\nthere's really NO need to use Vista at all on any such computer.\n\nI would NOT expect Young (not anymore) Bill to make Vista run on old\ncomputers. But he did provide the Aero-free version anyway.\n[/QUOTE]\nAnd as I wrote, Vista Starter is as basic as you can get but even that\nversion requires a very ballsy computer to run it.\nAs I see it, there wouldn't be too many people who are going to bin their\nrelatively new Athlon64s and P4s and buy new computers just to run Vista.\nYou said that Vista was not for us. They say that a fool and his money are\nsoon parted so I guess you must mean Vista is for them then. Let's see which\nway it goes.\nI can't help but notice a lack of press reports regarding sales of Vista or\neven strong sales of new branded computers made from the best quality\nfactory seconds. Don't misunderstand me. I am not knocking Gates and his\ndreams. I have no problems with XP Pro and everything that runs sweetly on\nit. God bless the corp key even. I love the way that I can click on any app\nand it opens instantly and works perfectly for me. Burning DVDs and still\nbeing able to do other stuff while that is happening is pretty cool too\nbecause I am not wasting my time.\nI love my XPee Pro and I love the way that apart from SP1 I have never had\nto update it with these stupid patches etc. I have no problems with my\ncomputers at all and that is what I think computing is all about.\nI don't tolerate guns that don't shoot straight, knives that won't hold an\nedge and motor cycles and cars that do not work properly so I certainly will\nnot tolerate a shit OS let alone a computer that when it boots up, the\nlights in the street go dim and I won't need a heater in the den in winter.\nCheers.
