AmigaOS is the best OS i've ever seen.

Windows Vista is a bunch of horsecrap even if it wouldn't have DRM.
I actually ran the RTM version here, on an Athlon64 3500 with 2 gigs of ram. Runs like {bleep}. You can take your precious vista and shove it where the sun won't shine.

I'll use my Amiga and Mac, thank you very much.

You realize nobody really cares about Vista or Microsoft in general on a Amiga site?

I checked out the vid and fast forwarded through most of it.. I guess I dont see what the big deal is?  A couple of videos playing and you can switch between them? *yawn*  back to my Linux box.

I looked the "demo" and I saw no signs of display crawling... Are you sure it's not a rendered animation ;) ?

And yes, that thing could be like that... As long you're willing to pay for a bloody expensive 3D card, several 2GBytes of RAM, the fastest hardware in order to feed the Vista monster. I would like to know the technical details of the PC they used, like 3D card model, amount of RAM, buses widths... Specially its prices.

At the risk of feeding such a blatant and obvious troll.

nice presentation

Though in what way does it kill any os that isn't vista?

How will this hollywood style ui aid a typical system user in their daily workload? How does it empower me? What difference does it make to my activity, what technical aspects need to be resolved, the amount of data getting thrown about there requires substantial network capacity, let's see how well it works when several thousand people are simultaneously trying to order the products? Do we just assume that network bandwidth will magically adapt to the demands of this "rich media experience" ?

and also, bearing in mind that your generic corporate pc may have a good cpu but is highly likely to have intel extreme graphics which will "support" this system at a snails pace.

Whenever a marketing drone talks about "rich media" experience the bull detector goes into overdrive, it's a yawnsome phrase that i've heard repeated over the years that ultimately demonstrates nothing other than a perceived revenue stream that you might want to impress some investors with.

And then there's the offensive level of drm, Protected Audio Path? yeah.. sounds like PAP doesn't it, and document rights management? How funny will it be when someone revokes the access to your private data and your computer refuses to allow you to use it, this crack WILL occur.

And what the hell is the justification for this?

fun microsoft drm

Sorry but I enjoy the ownership and control of my data, and I can manage that with any os (including current versions of windows), I will most likely be migrating seriously to linux in the near future, it's possible I may get a mac or two, but I certainly have no desire or necessity for vista, it offers me nothing that XP or 2K isn't good enough to do already.

And the security is still persistently useless. With the mentality of hiding security flaws from the public until a patch is constructed it's no suprise there's already so many compromised machines out there, this will continue to occur with vista.

I only really keep windows for games these days, I personally wouldn't trust it with anything serious.

Feel free to tell me how crap linux and everything else is, I find it performs the tasks I require of it. And that's all that's required of a tool, which is what a computer is.

And I quite like my amigas too.

I'm happy for you that vista provides you fullfillment in your life but its worth absolutely nothing to me and indeed, most of the members of this website.

Enterprise sucked, the first 3 seasons anyway. Archer was flaky, the plot lines were recycled and the characters were quite contrived. Unfortunately, it got really good by the 4th year, just in time for all 17 fans to notice.

Cool!

I enjoyed the part of the show where there were three video screens that seemed to float on a mountain background. That sort of frazzle-dazzle pizazz will really help me keep track of my budget files and type mesmerizing emails to my wife. I wonder what's next...Excel 3D? ooh. Now I can type in my formulas sideways.

No really, that's nifty but not enough for me to want to upgrade.

It's fun to see those "Amiga is dead" posts surface once in a while...irrelevant but entertaining.

at least Star Trek is a constructive discussion!

And I just installed XP last year ...

Now, got to run out buy a GeForce 8800GTX, 2Gig Ram, install vista, just so I can watch 3D pop up Ads ...... That will really increase your productivity!?

Well there is the killer app of 3D porn ...  :lol:

To put it simply, as an IT professional, and after having attended numerous informational and technical seminars on Vista, as well as having played with it myself,

I will not be encouraging my customers to switch within the first year of Vista's release.  Vista is primarily eye candy and offers few technological or functional reasons to switch from Windows XP.  It is unreasonable in its requirements for business purposes, and obsoletes many machines which are fully capable of running Windows XP.

The basic edition of Vista is basically Windows XP.  I will admit that Vista contains many attractive possibilities to IT admins, but not enough to warrant what is required to move.

My personal objections lie mostly in the realm of DRM.  I don't think I need to go on a diatribe about this as most of my audience is technically savvy enough to already know the arguments against DRM.  To be brief, DRM is a broken method for controlling the demise of a broken business model.

End of line.

What the hell does all that mean? How can a video or audio output have "protection"? Protection from what? And why do data on the PCI bus need to be encrypted on their way to the GFX card? Who is going to capture it along the way? What would they do with it even if they could?

What is Microsoft so frightened of that they feel the need to "protect" everything like this?
