|1.||but it has Windows Vista!|
Quite possibly the worst way to describe your computer's screen.
Originates from GameFAQs' Random Insanity board, where a Staples employee tells the story of a moronic woman who understands nothing about computers.
Kloo Shanko: "Ma'am, the operating system doesn't affect the size of the screen."
Customer: "But it has Windows Vista!"
Kloo Shanko: "Like I said, that doesn't affect anything, ma'am."
A totally wanky piece of software that's been crammed down people's throats by forcibly installing it on all new PCs.
Shop Assistant : It has Windows Vista on it to!
Me : Bollocks! I don't want it
SA : But it won't work without it!
Me : Will it arse! I'm putting Linux on it! Here, take my Vista DVD and COA and gimme my cash back!
SA : Erm.....
Windows Vista is Microsoft's upcoming operating system (OS), due to be released in December of 2006. It will be the most powerful and most technologically advanced system in history, and will integrate web security into it's core (unlike all other Microsoft Products).more...
It will be the first system using DirectX 10, which is supposedly a big step forward in graphics technology. Halo 2 will be released ONLY for Vista, as an incentive. Also, Flight Simulator 2006 (aka FSX) will be released, and will unleash the next generation of simulated flight.
Microsoft has received much criticism due to excessive focus on visual features, rather than performance, within Windows Vista. Also, the price of Vista Ultimate is expected to be in the appauling $200-400 range, which may possibly worsen Microsoft's low sales (due to the XBOX 360).
Recently, they have received immense criticism for Microsoft's security and privacy settings, and have been accused of making spyware, known as the WGA (Windows Genuine Notification). Unfortunately, this technology will be integrated and unremovable from Vista, which also may decrease their popularity and sales.
System requirements also pose an issue to many consumers, due to their lack of the latest technology, which is QUITE out of reach to most, due to price. Microsoft recommends Vista users to have Dual-Core 64-bit Processors, and at LEAST 1GB Dual-Channel DDR2 Memory, and PCI-Express Motherboards. These features are still extremely expensi...

The next Windows OS that will succeed XP as the most powerful, innovative and secure OS Microsoft have ever released... or in non-bullshit terms, powerful because it will require astronomical hardware requirements for all the extra bloat, by innovative they assume that you have never heard of this thing called Mac OS X which they have shamelessly ripped off and by secure they mean for the first nanosecond it is released before it is picked apart by hackers and crackers.more...
It will feature several exclusive products which are only available because of it's unique and advanced features... or again in plain English - M$ have intentionally crippled their stuff to only work on this OS and thus alienating their own users. No wait, sorry, this is an *incentive* to upgrade!
Last but not least it is a huge DRM update, supporting crap like TPM (Trusted Platform Module) and HDCP where even if you are legit but didn't fork over the dough for a HDCP compliant graphics card, CD drive and monitor you'll get no movie. Hey, that's a nice 32" widescreen plasma display you have there... wait, no HDCP? No movie for you chump! Oh, did I forget to mention that it will also have a "black box" feature? But don't worry, it's only for collecting data for...
An OS made by Microsoft that has more errors and malfunctions than XP, their previous OS, but can be set to be cooler-looking (although chances are that your graphics card won't be able to run MS Word with the transparency and stuff turned on).
It would be better than Leopard in terms of what it can do, if it could only do those things without crashing as much as it does. Whether or not it's prettier than Leopard is debatable, but it doesn't really matter, because it's a computer program, not a piece of art. It really comes down to this: if you have a LOT patience, get Vista. If you don't want to actually do things with your computer, get Leopard. Of course, the choice is really this: get something pretty, like Vista or Leopard, or get something that works, i.e. XP.
Ted: Hey, I just got Vista today. It's got pretty colors.
Fred: I have OSX. It's like Vista, except it doesn't crash.
Jack: I have XP. I can do things with it, AND it doesn't crash when I do.
Ted: Well... Are your windows transparent?
Jack: No, but I can open them without crashing my computer.
Fred: Is your monitor 42" and pretty? Does it contain your, uh, vidja card, and C-poo?
Jack: No, my monitor fits through doorways, and I can upgrade my computer.
A recently released version of windows that mac idiots often bash for its supposed errors. All of the critics of vista usually have not used the os at all, but just feel cool for crying and wishing mac was better. Mac=emo, nonconformists, crybaby hippies. Vista=mainstream,
Mac: Dude Windows Vista sucks it has errors narr!!!!
PC: You should probably learn how to use a computer.
Mac: Lets save the world, vista is stupidd!!! narrrrkkk!
