Windows Vista - What a piece of crap

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Richard Sainz, Jul 10, 2007.

  1. I spent $2M on a brand new computer with Vista on it and nothing works. I
    sent 72 problem reports and e-mails to Microsoft and never got a response. If
    you are even thinking of getting Vista-DON'T, you will be wasting your money.
    Now I have to spend even more money to get Windows XP which works perfectly
    on my old 30 year old computer and a video card so I can download videos to
    my new computer.

    Yo, Richard...dude...I would love to sell you your next PC. It won't have
    that Vista stuff on it...I'll throw in a copy of XP Pro. And for a limited
    time I'll sell it to you for the low, low price of $1.5M. Yes, that's
    right...a full $500,000 less than you paid for that other pile of junk and
    *way* better than that PC you bought in 1977 (which you've managed to mod to
    get it to run XP...impressive). So act operator is standing by.

  7. Obviously none of you clowns graduated from high school or have ever worked
    in the financial community. The "M" stands for "Thousand" in finance not

  8. The computer was 30 years old not the xp operating system. That was put on
    when XP first came out. You really are the dumbest bunch of people. lol

    Don't know what M stands for. However, please explain how you can get a 30
    year old computer (predates the 8086 by several years) to run XP.

    I think that it would take at least 2 Million dollars to get a 30 year old
    computer to run Windows Vista. I hate to admit it but I had a computer 30
    years ago and it wouldn't even run DOS.

    Yeah, one could even say the year is MMVII. Don't pay attention to the
    MS kiddies whose only purpose here is to make fun of the messenger while
    never addressing content.

    ¿Conoces al sistema operativo que se llama Ubuntu? Echa un vistazo a Es gratis y multilingüe.

  14. So you got Windows XP working on your computer dated 1977? Incredible! You
    must be some kind of genius to get XP working on an Apple II, or your
    Comodore PET, probably under your CP-M emulator !!

    I think you need to tone down the drugs in your system. You NEVER had XP
    working on your 30 year old computer. What really happened was someone took
    a screen shot of XP, printed it out on paper, then taped the page to your

    HA HA - Drug rehab works wonders. You might even get a dose of reality in
    the near future.

  15. You graduated from HS, work in the financial community, and spent $2000 on a
    computer that can't run Vista. This explains some things!

    You forgot the part about the 30 year old computer that has been running
    XP for 20 years!

  18. Wow! Do you realize that the first IBM PC was released in 1981? That means
    that our friend has found a way to make Windows run on a Commodore PET,
    Apple II or TRS-80. (These were the three "powerhouse" computers released
    in 1977, so anything else available would have been of a lesser hardware

    I don't know about you but I must bow in genuine reverence to anyone who can
    accomplish that feat.

  19. If you mail me a check for $4.5M, I will put any OS on any PC you wish

    Don't guarantee that it will work, but I will put it on for you.

    By the way, how is drug rehab going? :)
