impressed with vista


Recommended Posts

Well chuck , if you have an issue with MS and Vista , so be it. I'm happy with it :P
Oh I've no issue with MS in general. Their products are my bread and butter, but I don't like their latest and greatest.

 

Even Steve Ballmer admits that Vista is a bit of a problem child

When they bring out SP2 for Vista I might give its tyres another kick.

The problem isn't what people don't know, it's what they know that just ain't so.

It a dual core laptop. came with 1GB ram, has been upgraded to two.

 

With Vista loaded, I have about 1GB of ram free, with XP I have about 1.5. That makes a huge difference when I'm rendering video.

 

 

Its not UAT that bugs me, that can easily be switched off, it's the amount of RAM Vista swallows up, even when it's doing nothing.

 

 

Sussed it, wise Chesters was right. Now is the time to buy, with 3gb ram and quad core vista does seen very enjoyable to use. Still if the machine starts to get bogged down we could allways double the speed with an upgrade. :) As i got my one i looked at a laptop that had 4gb fitted as standard, wondering what that one would be like to use.

Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.


New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.

Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.

Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.

new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.

Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

If your laptop has 4GB it is unlikely to be capable of being upgraded further in the memory department. Even if it could neither Vista or XP would be able to use it. Both are limited to addressing 4GB.

i think the same is running 2003 and mobile5 on my pda ,ran fine with 2003 but mobile5 slowed the devil down ,the pda i have comes with either operating system but i upgraded (and quickly went back) ,the newer software though is better but hogs the minuscule speed of the pda's cpu :(

Vista does need more resources to run and for a geek, the safety features can be annoying.

 

That said, for most users it is a huge improvement and almost certainly more stable.

 

I'm running Vista on my laptop at home - it came pre-installed - and have no intentions of removing it in favour of XP-pro even though I own several legal copies. I just have to live with being able to compute more and do less housekeeping. It is probably a bit slower with heavy duty programs but I'm not running any at home so it is doing fine.

 

Chesters - a 64 bit system should run almost all (maybe all, all) of your 32 bit stuff. I'm not sure it emulates 16 bit as well as XP can though. That would need trying with the specific ancient apps you have.

LOL. I never noticed that first time round Colin. Have you been reading 1984 Newt?

Nice to know that I am not the only one who thinks that XP is faster than Vista on the same iron.

Perhaps his machine is not big enough to support it properly as well.

My machine has a Designed for Vista logo. XP is faster on the same iron, whatever that iron may be.

i expect if you took out all the useless "visual" crap vista may improve but as usual rather than streamlining with better code microsoft just piles in extra code slowing things down.still negotiating for a vista 64bit version from a source but will dual boot with XP to be on the safe side.eventually everything will be 64bit so i'l have a head start
