I am in love with Vista

I never thought I would say this but I absolutely love Windows Vista. I replaced two computers a few weeks ago and purchased a couple of custom custom-made PCs that were basically made for gaming. They came with Vista home edition 64-bit which I thought initially was going to cause a problem. However all my programs have loaded okay. My version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking would not work on a 64-bit system but since it was a genuine copy and I had the serial, I could download the full 64-bit from their website for free.

Vista is so user-friendly, it's just fantastic. I particularly like the way they have built-in a purpose download section so you always know where your downloads are going . They have also got their own speech recognition built in. I haven't used it much yet, but when I did use it I was extremely impressed at its accuracy.I could go on about how good it is but I will probably bore everyone to death.

Obviously this has all the up-to-date hardware and you really do notice the difference between this PC and one that is only 2 1/2 years old. My speech recognition software used to take around one minute to load on my other computer which only has a Pentium D processor, two gigs of RAM and XP. Seven seconds on this PC, that's one heck of a difference.

Don't let anyone tell you that Vista is crap, I use a lot of applications and I have come across absolutely no problems

i have to agree with you boss. ive been using vista for about a year and a half now and in general i have no negative things to say about it.
i dont use as many apps as you do but i do a lot of gamming and i have yet to find any conflicts with any of the games i play.
i find it very user friendly and recommend it to anyone who wants a relatively stable operating system that so far has run great on my pc.

Warning..I will offend you at some point!!!


my goal is simple a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all

I have got Vista on a laptop that I hardly ever used and I really didn't like Vista, probably because it is quite a bit different to XP. I don't suppose the fact that the laptop had less than one gig of ram helped.

Both my new PCs have got the Intel dual core something or other (unfortunately the inside of computers baffles me) the PC I'm using at the moment has got 4 GB DDR RAM and the other one has got 6 GB. It's not until you have this at your disposal that you realise how much difference it makes.

I just can't imagine using XP ever again.

I wasn't convinced that Vista was any good until I started using it. I would not go back to XP for all the tea in China. I am on 64 bit system which I'm led to believe is a lot quicker than 32-bit. All my programs load unbelievably fast.

I have read quite a few things on the Internet where people slag it off and say that it is no good. I don't know where these people are coming from but I haven't had any problems with it. As you know, I'm always doing stuff with websites and all different types of programs.
