    It's ha0ppened. I love Vista too much. It is horrible. I have switched back to Tiger once in the last week.

    What can I do?

    Just use Vista and attempt to suppress the occasional gag reflex?

    Del Vista. Now, it's the only way. Delete it now!!!

    Remember, Windows = Viruses, Mac = No viruses. At the very least, install Linux. ;)

    If you like the Vista over OS X then you should stay on Vista -- you shouldn't feel obligated to stay with OS X.

    Why 'Oh no!'?

    If you don't want to switch back, then obviously Vista is good so you might as well stay with it. It's not bad to like it just because it's windows. If it's good a good OS, it's a good OS.

    There's no reason for you to feel committed to using OS X.

    Seconded.
    Hey, Vista is new. Once you've seen the eyecandy stuff enough, it'll stop mattering, and the understated elegance of OS X will appeal to you again.

    Definitely...(even your polls) :) .

    To be sure, some people around here are extreme hard a***** - others, on the other hand, are more leaned-back and casual. I've learned just to ignore the hard a***** ;) .

    what things about vista do you like the most? with even the pc pundits scoffing at vista, i'm really interested in what vista really has to offer.

    they've taken out winFS, and the authorization windows apparently bugs a lot of early reviewers.

    The authorization bugs the crap out of me. However I like the eye candy. I now am back to OS X because Vista is BadAss Slow™

    If Vista is so much fun.. skin it to look like Windows 95 or something as ugly as that.

    More like it is time to buy yourself a Fisher Price Computer/Playset to go along with the Vista User Interface.

    Some people after all do revert to their childhood when the stress gets too bad.

    I'm using Windows Vista Beta 2 (Build 5384) right now. Having only used it for a day or so, my first impressions are that there is no real difference between it and XP, apart from eye candy. Definatley nothing to get me to "upgrade" from XP.

    EDIT: The eye candy sucks on my PC cos it only has a nVidia GeForce 4 MX 440 w/ 128MB VRAM :mad:

    So well stated. I ran Vista Beta 2 for awhile and it was very slow. I was running it on a Dell Latitude D620 with a core duo, 2GB RAM, 7,200 RPM HDD and a 256MB Quadro NVS110M graphics card. The OS STILL ran laggy for me. That is sad.

    Beast

    I want to install "Ultimate Beast". Beast would be good OS name. Other names could be "Beast Pro", "Business Beast", "Beast Lite", "Consumer Beast", "Standard Beast", "Media Beast", and "Extreme Beast".
