since windows ME. this brings back bad memories.
Chuck a bucket of water over the sucker *oops* and ring your insurance company? Worked for... a friend of mine...
Switch to Linux? Seriously, after the bomb that is Vista, I don't expect Windows 7 to deliver any better. These rushed Microsoft products, I see a real pattern going on. @ Bottom I like Macs but they don't offer the power I'm looking for if I were to go all out. That being said, THIS IS THE PERFECT opportunity for another competitor to come in with another OS, a seriously refined Linux OS like Ubuntu to sweep us off our feet.
Or Mac. Of course Windows 7 will be better than Vista. Vista runs a whole new Kernel, look at Vista as more of a test run. An expensive one, for all parties. in case your interested or unsure > http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I'm sorry consumers don't have time to pay for test runs of a product unless it delievers GT5:P is a test run that delievers, Vista just failed, I'm not buying/upgrading my OS, Microsoft has been rushing stuff to often as of lately and I've really lost my trust with them as a company, as you might have remembered Vista Ultimate isn't cheap. What the hell am I suppose to do with this junk>? Give it to a friend? The hell I'll trust Microsoft again with hella expensive software. I realize Microsoft did a serious overhaul, as your telling me a complete re-do, I still can't trust Microsoft they're costing me more money to fix the problems they're creating.
My vista laptop got BSOD a few weeks ago, i fixed it but it was quite annoying.
Windows isn't all that terrible. So long as you're running a clean ship and keeping things moderately updated, your system will smooth out. My main comp running XP had most of it's blue screen problems in the first 3 months and since then it smoothed itself out.
yes there are glitches but you haveto give ms credit for creating an OS that can handle MANY combinations of hardware and still run games FINE. I heard it from too many linux freaks who emphasize that linux is far better than windows..... but when ever I bring up the comment that you can do much more on a windows machine they hide behind the "non crash" environment of linux..... sorry but if you know how to configure and maintain your operating system windows is very versatile. I can honestly say I have not tested vista (it sounds worse than windows xp but better than me), but windows xp, 98, and 2k have been rock solid for me.
Havnt had a BSoD in a few years now. *shrug*
I really dont see much blue screens of death since windows 98 first service pack. Rule of thumb keep your computer clean... and learn how to maintain it properly
