Thanks for a good laugh...
so thats M$ saying "The things that you need up are the things that slow your computer down the most. We will add a force-quit feature (and face the trademark issues with apple later) so you can mess your entire os up, throw your current box out the window, and buy a Mac. We still make money, don't need to spend money fixing the OS for all the bugs it has in it, and people switch to the greater good."
that is a flaw, with M$ will miss, and offer in an update on day 2.
Knowing Microsoft they will just make it so those apps don't show up in that warning but leave the bugs in there. Just like at all of there keynotes SOMETHING goes wrong.
Actualy, Microsoft will notice, they'll just ignore it!
scha·den·freu·de (shäd'n-froid'ə) n. Pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others.
[German : Schaden, damage (from Middle High German schade, from Old High German scado) + Freude, joy (from Middle High German vreude, from Old High German frewida, from frō, happy).]
Windows Vista causing Windows Vista problems???
Ok, I know Windows Vista is still in Beta testing, but this is NOT reassuring to see. The following is from Gizmodo:
Windows Vistas Worst Performer? Windows Vista
Now dont base any purchasing decisions on this screen capWindows Vista is still in beta, after allbut as much as we welcome the new feature in Vista that points out which programs are slowing down ones computer, we kinda sorta wish the programs in question werent the ones that make it run.
Heres to the next few months of polishing, Microsoft! (Thanks, Bootman!)
That combined with the world's largest Windows error message have made it a good day for Windows bashers.
I'm loving your work Gekko....
Vista just keeps getting and better doesnt it.....one things for sure leopard is going to blow it out of the water!
I loved this comment from a user who said-
"i really don't get it. i don't feel the need to hang around mac posts and gripe about how mice only have one button, that i have to thow the cd in the trash to get it to eject, that i have to push a button on the keyboard to get the cd/dvd-rom to eject sometimes, there are zero apps on the mac that i like, and that the object bar slows me down. what the hell is wrong with you people?"
I can't post there (you need to be invited) but maybe someone could point out the error.
Chappers if you think that's bad, here's a recent comment I got on my blog:
Normally I'd delete such a comment but it was too funny not to leave up.
I don't understand the Windows fanboys defending Windows like they do. I use to build my own PCs and play lots of games on my PC. I think both platforms complement each other.
Once that feature works, I see the value in it. A lot of Windows machines have these mini apps from third-party software that loads up the tray and you have to go into the registry to remove them. Even a bare minimum will have enough tools loaded that makes XP very slow to start up. Tools like the anti-virus, etc.
I am happy Vista won't be a Tiger killer. I can see the Mac platform taking up a sizable marketshare in the next 5 to 10 years. Windows can remain for keeping those legacy apps and games running for many more years.
It's amazing how he can use the insult "you retards" when he doesn't even start a single sentence with a capital letter...
ahaha I vote that for MacRumors quote of the day.
But at least he knows how to use CAPS. A lot.
It could at least show some self respect.
Thats funny.....so windows is slowing down windows then....interesting
That's the one great flaw in internet communication...people can pull comments straight out of their a** that they wouldn't have the balls to say in person. Or would be embarassed to say because they know it sounds totally puerile. That flamer (I mean that as a person who flames ) might be John Dvorak, as far as we know, since he is an anonymous coward.
The "how can I avoid this problem?" button should be a link to www.apple.com
Do I see a new Switch ad for the Apple page? I think this would be a great slap to Billy and the boys.
Off topic, but doesn't anyone else see that the font smoothing in that screen shot is WAY better than in Mac OS X? It feels a lot sharper and clearer, whereas font smoothing in Mac OS X tends to make text a little blurry.
The other day I was using IE on XP (against my will) and something pretty funny happened. At one point I chose "Work Offline" while troubleshooting a webpage and when I went back to undo it, the command had disappeared. No "Work Online" or anything equivalent. Help told me such a command would be there, but it wasn't. I restarted the app and it connected to the Internet just fine, but the command was still missing. I have no idea how common this bug is -- could have just been that machine for all I know -- but apparently on that iteration of IE you can work offline once and then never again!
Windows provides so many jokes with so little time to repeat all of them.
Bleh. It's from a beta, and it's known that Explorer in the recent beta have some issues. Or are you suggestion that betas should be bug free and perfect? Anyway, I think seem like a nice feature. And that it currently reports one of the Windows components as having performance problems is funny, but no valid reason to bash Windows (Vista). But, please, feel free to bash it when the same thing happens again in the Final version.
Err.. what? Trademark issues? why? Windows have a force-quit feature (obviously not named the same) right now. And the OS X force quit is pretty much like the Unix 'kill' command... and even if not, it still whouldn't be a trademark issue.
Hmm... I don't really see much difference between the fonts on the screenshots and the fonts on my system now.
I havent had a single problem with my copy of Windows Vista. It runs faster than XP IMO. Only iTunes drags it down due to iTunes doesnt like Aero Glass so it has to switch back to regular Aero.
