Vista Running 108 Apps Bites Mac OS X Back

The video shows Microsoft Windows Vista with Service Pack 1 running 108 applications at only 30% processor usage, according to Reader Daniel Smith, who sent it to us in response to the picture of Mac OS X Leopard running 150 applications this weekend. His specs are nothing to write home about

looks pretty freaking laggy to me, but hey, that doesn't mean its real time.

It's not really smooth when you consider it's an Intel Quad core with 4GB of RAM.

Ahhh... that's great to know, I'm always juggling 100+ app's, aren't you?

Shame it can't deal with just one game at a time.

lol, sorry to sound so bitter.

Your fingers are so fishy, I'm in love.

Can't really argue with you fish. I want to, but ... can't.

I don't think I even have that many applications on my computer.

I don't really give a damn which can run more at a time. All that matters is running a few applications fast and being functional and easy to use. Vista is pretty much garbage in that regard.

Really? Have you even tried it? It's working great for me (as long as you get a computer thats capable of running it; got mine for only $900). It really bugs me when people trash something that they have never used, and just go by what this and that person says.

I haven't had too many problems with Vista, either. I did, however, build a pretty beefy computer. But I do have to say that it does suck up some resources compared to other OS's, but as far as functionality and whatnot, the base stuff isn't really far removed from XP. While Vista does have a few issues, all of the "trash Vista, give us our dream OS" chants are a bit stupid.

As for UAC, though.. I had to disable that crap. I'm capable enough to build a computer, so I don't need or want it double-checking every little thing I do to it.

and I'm sure some are used to it by now. It took XP a while now it's one stable Mofo, just like Win 98 was.

Still impressive for the Hardcore user..tho

I have a love-hate relationship with Vista. I know it will get better, since the pressure I think is on MS now. I hope other competitors push them in whichever way..

I still like my windos
