vista, when released, will be much more evolved then stupid linux. Why, it will require brand new computers!!!! I dont know about you, but i cant wait to trash my perfectly working computer with linux, and put on vista, sure, i could just keep my good computer with linux, but then i would miss out on all those great drm features, i think a few thousand dollars is a fair price to pay so i cant do anything. ..

yay?

Wow, I can almost taste that sarcasm SciYro.

With any luck, Vista hasn't been released because the bugs hav'n't all been worked out yet... Then again, this is a Microsoft product. Their marketing team probably wants to wait until their Partners have made some bonus cash selling "Vista Ready" products first.

It goes well with cheese.

Vista is apparently a rewrite of a large portion of the codebase. I've got my fingers crossed that it will mean a significantly better OS for the consumers. I'm not a Windows hater, I found it to be a good OS I just prefer linux. However one thing I do hate though is spyware of any description and with a secure OS being run on 95% of computers instead of 5% it'll stuff those pricks up big time :D

Then I'll put a pirate flag on my roof.

I think that was worth at least 2 Euro cents.

Microsoft is not done deciding which great new features cannot be included by the release date.

I heard there was a bug in solitare that's bundled with it. This is the cause of the delay, cause solitare is about the only good thing that comes with Windows.. ;)

IM very mad that we have to buy new computers lol im 15 and i dont have a job , i might officaly switch to linux once i get ndiswrapper working and i get good with linux. I just started getting serious with linux i bought a couple of books on it , but!! im tired of moving my computer to my basement to get internet , so untill i get ndiswrapper working properly on suse i wont bother and will keep windows :P :) but then again who can hate windows , BIll gates and his programmers offer a very good crackable OS.

but thats not the point lol , hopefully i will be able to switch to linux 100% :) becasue i love open source , and i have always wanted to use linux as my offical OS i use all the time :)

Actually, the computer teacher at my school had an error in paint. She hit the debug option(because she's got VC++ installed), the error was something about Paint trying to divide by 0.

Is the general consensus that it will require new hardware?
