Vistasex (-1.138)
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.

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).

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 expensive at this time, and with people not having access to it, Vista will have dramatically less copies sold.

Pirated copies of Windows Vista will not function, due to "genuine-technology", so millions of users from third-world countries may be stuck with Windows XP or earlier versions.

Last, but certainly not least, Internet Explorer 7 will be released with Windows Vista, and is said to be "much improved, secure and optimized", however many users will not be using it due to IE's history and lack of trust for Microsoft's browser.
Tom: ...and you know how bad IE is-
Joe: IE 7 is supposed to be really good!
Tom: I don't give a s**t, Firefox is better-
Joe: BUT-
Tom: Shut up!
Joe: Ok.... (sad) Anyway, I can't wait for FS2006, FS2004 Sucked!
Tom: I know, but your computer isn't good enough, and you can't afford Vista.
Joe: Ok.... (crying) What about Halo 2?
Tom: Nope
Joe: Ok.... (weeping)

When Bill Gates went batshit. See useless.
Honestly, this pile of shite won't run for longer than 10 minutes without crashing or dimming your screen for a window that says "OMG YOU JUST MOVED YOUR MOUSE ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO DO THIS". NOTHING is compatible with it. Unless you have shitloads of ram and an epic processor, stick with XP. IF you have shitloads of ram and an epic processor, stick with XP. Also, stfu linux fanboys, where's your .exe's? ;) INSTALL FROM THE COMMAND LINE, LEET
Person 1 (Fanboy): OMG LOOK AT HOW SLEEK AND AMAZING VISTA IS
Person 2 (Common sense): It looks nice but it's unreliable as fuck.
Person 1 (Fanboy): STFU ITS AMAZING IT CAME OUT AFTER XP SO IT MUST BE GOOD.
Person 2 (Common sense): No, it's useless.

Windows Vista has become a scapegoat for a great deal of computer users blaming their machines and operating systems, not their own idiocy. Don't get me wrong, though - Windows Vista is a TERRIBLE operating system
