    If you want a wider poll, then for the sake of those of us who have not reviewed it, would you care to elaborate on the differences/similarities? - or even point to some objective reviews.

    According to "The Onion" here are some of the new features of Windows Vista:

    Microsoft Word's helpful paper-clip icon now blinks at rate of normal humans

    Enhanced graphics on "System Is Not Responding" pop-up window

    Five new card-back designs for Solitaire

    Something that Apple would never, ever dream up in a billion years

    4,391 security flaws to be patched over next 15 years

    Promise of broad, open-minded future or some bullshit

    Lists blocked wireless connections with greater speed and accuracy

    New operating system, same old Microsoft Paint
    Fixin' shit that ain't broke.

    THat's very helpful - I personally know that from the very early DOS whenever a new operating system was produced, it retained the old - in it's entirety - microsoft (at least up until Win98) never removed old code - unused code - or flawed code - they used patches. Add in a few comments like "You can now download pornography faster than a catholic bishop", and painted over the desktop.

    Speaking of word paper clip have you all seen that wonderful video of the little beast?

    If people read the link I've provided they'll get a glimpse of the failures of XP (and the failures windows Vista will probably have. I base my opinions on a few people I personally know who have the beta version of Vista).

    However, the link provided mostly puts down some vista-defending fallacious statements, and gives logical evidence for what Windows is doing.


    However, while I voted "yes", the real response is "I'll inevitably be forced to buy vista or a newer OS 10 years down the line because absolutely nothing will support 2k and because users were too stupid, senile, and lazy, to boycott windows until they made a proper OS."

    Which is similar to the current world situation. Too many lazy stupid people winning the wrong battles at the wrong time for the wrong reasons. *sigh* stop the world, I want to move to mars. >.>

    As for the video: If it's the one where he's shot? Yes. And I was so happy I cried.

    I'd also like to mention that windows 2k doesn't fit your older-OS generalization. I've noticed a few flaws within the system, but unlike XP/98/ME/etc, these flaws are so unnoticeable they're jokes. I use windows 2k, and I will always have a computer with that OS. Although due to incompetence of the user basis who will buy Vista, I'm afraid that even my stance will be forced to change. Although I might just use Mac or Linux (even though I vehemently hate both) in the end.

    That's a hell of piece you have put together there - well done - I have copies of 95, 98, 2K & XP That'll do me I can keep them going till I tire of PC's - I hope people read your work it - I can't spare the time at present. I think you aought to reference it in a post rather than your sig though.

    While at present I can see a few problems with it (and I shouldn't have messed with relixa in that post by playing along with his hilarious provoking attempts), the rebuttals I made to a few moronic remarks some vista-defenders have said are sound enough to pass.

    And I have tried to get people to spread it around, but almost nobody does (due to their general stupidity and unwillingness to read it). Thus, while at the time I was full of motivation, I'm quickly learning that the public is far too incompetent to learn from anything I write (good OR bad).

    I think it is a smiley that represents screwed up eyes and a large smile ?
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.
