Hmmm, a place to debate computers. What's one of the biggest debate in technology at the moment?

Thats right... Are you a mac or a pc? And why?

huhwhat.

Its only good because they only need to make it to work on very small variations in hardware. Windows on the other hand is made to work on anything going; thus stability differences (Although when I installed OS X on this PC, it crashed a metric fuckton).

OS X is more idiot friendly; although Vista is very close to that level of foolproofness.

blahblahblah

Vista sucks, OS X sucks, XP 4 lyf.

Linux is about as user friendly as a sword with no handle; I've had no end of problems with it, and theres no way in hell I'm going to spend many, many hours setting it up and leaning it, just to do exactly what I can do in XP; In some cases, to a lesser ability in Linux.

Also, last I checked, Linux didn't like ATi cards much, so I doubt a toaster would be a suitable vehicle for a linux machine.

depends on what distro there are specific ones for such a purpose and linux has improved in the user freindly department and you can do a hell of a lot more in linux than in windows, it a hell of a lot more secure for a start and there's the fact that you can modify it as much as you like even make your own distro you could make one for electric wisks if you wanted oh and that's without getting into the morality thing

Vista is a very powerful OS. Once you work it in it's far better than XP.

Currently I'm using a Mac though, I have to, the motherboard on my laptop has failed.

I'm sorry good Sir, but you appear to be forgetting about the sublime OS that was '98.

Vista is the best thing to come since 98SE. I've never had a crash or a fault with it nor have many people. ME was a god awful disaster.

PC for me right now, however Macs are getting stronger and stronger, I mainly use my machine(s) for compiling and running services.

Wrote my own OS once, never got anywhere good with it though, it did boot a computer Very Happy

I think XP is one of the most stable operating systems Microsoft have produced, I have not yet had a chance to test Vista to the degree I'd like though.

Then again there are different systems for different uses.

98 was very good but i demand a lot out of a os and vista just doesn't cut it, it was released about 6 months too early is far too big and slow, has some serious security issues doesn't really innovate in anyway and microsoft are still sticking by direct x for some god awful reason

Vista isn't big and slow. Computers have moved on, operating systems should move on too.

RAM caching is a new feature of Vista. If it isn't being used, why let it go to waste?

From my point of view, for purely day to day use XP=Vista. There is no advantage to using vista over using XP. Windows 7 should be the first truly major change to the windows OS since 95.

I'd generally agree with that. While Vista is an overall improvement on XP, unless you are upgrading your PC there is no specific need to upgrade.

I installed wireless drivers on Vista once.

Its more painful than installing them on a hackintosh, of a linux install.

IT BOOTED EVERY TIME TO A BLUE SCREEN. TOOK ME HOURS TO FIX. HOURS. I was most displeased.

And RAM caching is a feature I don't want. =[

Also, why does Vista come on laptops? 90% of laptops cannot handle Vista properly, its just so slow. ;_;
