I thought this was funny so i took a picture with my phone
Um... what does it say? I've got pretty horrible eyes.
A boot options menu?
Please point out the humor to me?
Its not your eyes, its a pretty horrible shot! Or maybe... maybe I also have bad eyes?
It's the boot loader. It's where you select an OS in a multi-boot environment. I don't understand the amusement in it, as it's reminiscent of previous iterations of NTLDR.
It'd be like demoing a Macintosh while in the Boot Camp or in the PPC-based OS 9/OS X switcher. Difference being NTLDR is text based and Boot Camp is graphically based.
i just thought that it was funny that they are showing off this great new beutiful os with it if the boot menu
That makes two of us, Cassie I'd also like to know what it says. Maybe they just traded the blue screen of death for a black one, thus avoiding the hassle of learning a new acronym and keeping BSOD
EDIT: Darn, people on these forums write fast! I still liked my idea better than a boot menu though
plus what is the point, in boot camp you can chose between OS X and XP this only has one option an not even a safe mode, plus i remember that in xp it had a timer so if you didnt chose anything it would load up default, this was constant
Is that an all-in-one computer, or just a monitor with some extra bling on it? What does it look like from the side?
I've messed with this at work. It's a screen that is mounted on top of the CPU. It's almost like an iMac except it's form is more clunky and it has a touch screen. The keyboard can be stashed below the CPU.
It's pretty cool, but alot of people that try it out, think it's something new and revolutionary that comes with Vista. Ummmmmmmm, no. Try again.
It's this one http://www.shopping.hp.com/product/computers/desktops/IQ770_series/rts/4/computer_store/RN635AA%2523ABA
Yeesh. Talk about lack of design sense. Both the OS and the machine.
Thank you for the link -- yeah, when you look at it from the front, it isn't nearly as pretty as my iMac. When you look at it from all angles, it isn't even pretty.
I THINK THE EXPRESSION "A PILE OF CRAP" SUMS IT UP MUCH BETTER
that's probably the screen for selecting an OS.
i saw one of those the other day at BB before vista was released. my impression was actually quite positive. while the HP doesn't look as elegant as an imac, the vista machine is quite fancy - touch screen, a space for a photo printer, a space for wireless KB and mouse, TV, PVR, an easily-accessible drive bay for additional storage, etc.
would i buy one? probably not...
Maybe they were booting it up.
Look at that remote control.
How many buttons are there!*
You'd need a PhD to operate the thing.
* About 50 is the answer.
sounds about right
Thats only to figure on/off buttons. For the rest you need to be a windows user
Is it me or do I find humor in the fact that every PC manufacturer has to say Genuine Microsoft Windows Vista blah blah included?
Like they're gonna sell you a pirated copy with virii and pr0n on it.
Lol this reminds me, I was at Costco the other day and I was curious at how easy it was to crash a PC with Vista. So I clicked in the Internet Explorer about 15 times and then tried Flip 3D and the whole thing froze up
