Windows Vista is out!


Released to Manufacturing (RTM) a couple of days ago and now to the warez scene... (you can view NFO file at www.nforce.nl ) Seriously, it is the lamest nfo file I've ever seen! It's like one sentence and of course they removed the key number! (otherwise they could get sued)

Now we need some nicknames for Vista...

It's Windows Vista My Sista

Asta La Vista, Baby!

Una Vista Taco Del Rita?

What are you supposed to be saying here?
This makes no sense (and I'm from Mexico)

And...
Vista is out!!! wooooohooooooooooo!!!!

Now, back to my regular bots-blasting schedule
Vista's announcement changes nothing

"Una Vista Taco Del Rita" I have no idea... Probably just a string of random spanish words that popped into my head! LOL

Windows Vista - That's one small step for Microsoft, one giant step for Hollywood!

I'm thinking it has a lot of built in DRM capabilities...

Ask not what Vista can do for you, but what Vista can do to you!

Make up a good spanish sentence with the word vista... Doesn't vista mean "view" in english?

Yup something like that
Though I don't know from where they pulled the name from, nor what it's supposed to mean for them (micro$oft's staff), nor if it means something else in other languages. The latter can happen, it did with the micro$oft's anti-iPod, the Zune called thing.

IMHO, to me Vista means:
Viruses
Infections
Spyware
Trojans
Adware
