I hate Vista Business

That is all.

I know...

there are parts of XP that I miss, however having used Vista for almost 6 months now and I am actually quite happy with it.

some parts of XP I miss
while there are parts of Vista that are a welcome addition

Where to start... There are a bunch of patches that need to be added to our servers for everything to play together with Vista. It totally messed up our email server. My remote email on my new VB based Vaio first wouldn't let me even see my inbox, then wouldn't let me reply to anything and of course I was out of town when all this went down. My Treo also stopped synching and my palm desktop went down. I've had 1-3 IT guys wondering around the office almost non-stop since last Wednesday just to add 3 new VB based workstations at about $100 an hour each and each employee had hours of down time. I'm going to spend as much on the IT guys as the boxes and MS Office.

The only good news is that as of 5 minutes ago, my main IT guy finally walked out and everything is now working. I knew Viast was going to be a pain and that there was going to be teething problems, but this was silly.

there is no business based reason to move to vista other than increased security, if you've kept up with your xp patches and run a tight ship there is no reason to move to vista at all and several reasons to stay with xp.

from a business standpoint.

I dunno about business apps, but I just put Vista Ultimate on my windows laptop. it Sucks. Bad. Slow, buggy, bloated. No me gusta. Had XP before and it was much better.

I've got XP pro as a 2nd OS on my Macbook. Runs much faster, takes up half the space.


Neither one of them work as well as OS X.

Although, I have been using VB for awhile now on our remote users laptops, and no issues whatsoever introducing it to our network- all VPN's, syncing and email systems AOK. You need to tell your network admins to read the whitepapers and the MS implementation guides BEFORE they start issuing boxes with new OS's on them to LUsers or you will have nothing but Id-10-T errors.

OS X for the Mac users, pretentious in their coffeeshops

Gentoo for the nerd-lords in their mother's basement

XP for the everyday user, bound to muck around with bloody settings and registry values they should damn well leave alone

Then Vista from the Dark Lord behind his desk

In the Microsoft office, where crappy programming is performed

One OS to eat your RAM

One OS to spy on your digital media

One OS to screw them all, and in frustration bind them

In the Microsoft office, where crappy programming is performed

+1 Haven't had any issues at all rolling vista out. Unless you run a hack shop full of hack fixes you won't run into any vista problems. I actually like vista a lot but some people don't. Side note: Bring on Exchange 2007 please... can't wait.

I have run if for about a two months with no problem on my laptop. Is there any applications I can turn off at start up for Vista so it does not bog down?

I just re-installed XP 32bit on my new quad-core system. I'm considering a dual boot with Vista Ultimate just to see what's up with Vista. I just know that some of my more exotic hardware wont work under Vista...so I still need XP one way or another.

I do hope my work doesn't go to Vista anytime soon. With all the other crap they are giving me to do...I don't want to support these idiots on an OS that they are too lazy to explore.

Here is the thing, vista (in my opinion) was designed for computer noobs. I think in the long run, I recommend vista to people who donít know how to fix their computers because less virus and spyware at this time, equals less frustration for the user. For people who know how to use the xp system I recommend they stay using the xp os.

That's about what I've been told from friends that need to support it at their work.
