No matter how you look at it, a PC never feels fast enough, and when it comes to Vista, everything seems to take too long. Copying files, searching for documents, connecting to a wireless network and waiting for it to start are all frustrating.
The only tip you need: 'Downgrade' to XP, Update to Window 7.
And "Hasta la VISTA".
U beat me to it...just downgrade to XP...leave it at that. Bubbles! Great minds think alike. ^^
Or use vista. but thats if you arent stupid. I do, however, count on most of you installing vista on systems that cant run it. Yes you people with the pentium 4's. tards.
@ jromao i like that, made me laugh.
Dont try to run Vista with 4 MegaBytes RAM My 2GB ddr3 runs blindingly fast. Lets stop jumping on the Vista hate bandwagon people, it's come a long way since release. No problems for me.
It's not that people hate Vista. They hate Microsoft. So, no matter how much Vista improves, it will still say Microsoft on the box. As soon as the slightest problem hits with Windows 7, the Microsoft hating will start all over again with arrogant Linux nuts thinking the "advice" they deliver is clever.
umm no its not that, its we shouldn't need 2gb of DDR3 ram to run a fvcking OPERATING SYSTEM. Thats right, just an OPERATING SYSTEM.
Way to teach the children a little lesson lil krazzie, maybe they get it now.
lil_krazzie: If you cant afford 2GB of ram then I feel sorry for you. But i guess youd prefer an operating system that DOESNT use your ram to the fullest and uses a swap disk. Brilliant thinking.
And I'm still running out of memory, simply because Vista eats up 1.2 GB on its own. I do a ton of 3D rendering, and in the end Vista's costing me money since it allocates so much memory to itself.
Well then theres something wrong with your computer buddy. I use 3ds max and XNA all the time and never have that problem with 2GB of ram. Do you have a decent video card? Please dont tell me your graphics card is intel or integrated.
swicth to Linux or Mac OSx
all the way
switch back to xp.
Buy a Mac, best thing i ever did and haven't looked back
I got my father a MAC Mini for christmas cause his old computer was full of spyware and things that bog down computers...i took someone's advice and got a Mac for them so they're not susceptible to every little bug out there in the world. Needless to say...I was very impressed, and I want one for myself as well...only thing stopping me is the fact that my PC is just...my PC...has all the software, pictuers, everything that im used to. I dont feel like starting over. But yeah, MAC ftw.
A person having a PC with lots of virusses and trojan horse is a person who can NOT maintain his OS. Thats the problem with people claiming an OS sucks. They talk about Viruses, well how about NOT try to visit those fully infected porn website? how about NOT clicking every pop-up you see. How about NOT opening files blindly without knowing what they are. I hate Vista it works really bad on my laptop so i made a dual boot. Linux works like a charm, but if you are in need of lots of software Windows just does a good job. XP works great, and no viruses here, because i can maintain my system. Also MacOSX isn't that great >_>...the hardware is awesome but the OS is bad imo.
I just upgraded to xp wow
Buy a Mac, best thing i ever did and haven't looked back.
If you manage Vista properly it runs and works fine, but this article is good, it provides some good tips to people that may not know how or understand why their PC is running slow.
Sometimes people forget that LOTS of people dont use their PC only for websurfing or IM(or text processing for that matter). What Vista did was bad, 1 GB is to much, while i have 4( and can only use 3)it's enough but no OS should take up to 1 gb. Its slow as hell too. XP = the best windows os out there. im sticking to that.
There will always be Vista Nazi's in the thread that preach Vista is the best. Reality check, no it's not.
Yes just like there are people that preach that OSX is the end all be all of operating systems and steve jobs is the second comming of christ.
