Ooops...just goes to show you...garbage in garbage out.
Well go-lleey that's a sur-prise!!!
So to be honest Vista is just going to be XP Pro with bubbly, transparent icons and some OS X like features and the users will be telling us in a few years time that MS had it first.
There's another reason not to upgrade my XP boxes. They'd barely run Vista anyway since it's so darn resource intensive.
Now tell me, how does an Aussie know about Gomer?
Considering Vista recommends a GIG of RAM, Windows Vista can bite my arse. After reading about everything from Vista, I'm glad I made the switch to Mac.
1. It was on TV here too.
2. I spent my early childhood in Phoenix AZ.
3. There aren't many TV shows that haven't made it down here.
Don't make me bust out and F-Troop reference, no matter how fitting it may be to MSoft's approach to making software.
Microsoft really doesn't know what they are doing do they? I mean look how disorganized they must be! TWO YEARS off schedule AND they had to drop some major features.
Apple has no problem rolling out a new OS about every year. It's things like this that really make we wonder why Windows is the majority, and Macs are the minority. People need to stop being such PCheads, and open their eyes because there IS something better out there.
I'm sorry, it just really frustrates me that people put up with crap like this from Microsoft, and still think Macs are crappy.
Well you gots sum gud ed-u-cation there son.
Number one is the shocker. Of all the American TV, it always seems to be the most lame-brained stuff that finds its way to other countries. It makes me a little queasy to think about it.
Yep, that is pretty much the case iGary.
I think you just hit the nail on the head Bern.
That WinFS has been cancelled as part of Vista is hardly surprising. I have asserted for the record that Vista will never ship.
You may very well be proven right at the rate M$ is going MisterMe.
Vista will ship as a simple theme pack for Windows XP SP5 as part of Microsoft Plus! for Windows XP, 2012 Edition.
Of course by that time, Apple will have obtained a whopping 85%+ market share and M$ will be on the verge of bankruptcy.
I installed Vista while waiting for XP Pro to ship and it isnt all that. Vista is candy coated XP with too many problems, one being open gl.
On the verge, but not bankrupt. Microsoft and Apple will sign a 5 year agreement. Here are the details that I have learned from a dear friend with a flux capacitor:
-Apple will purchase $150 million worth of non-voting shares of Microsoft stock
-Safari will be the default browser in Windows
-Apple will produce the iWork suite for Windows for at least 5 years
-Both companies will sign a cross-licensing agreement, with the bulk of it detailing how Apple will allow Microsoft to replace it's antiquated "Blue Screen of Death" with any new Mac OS kernel panic messages as they're developed
I'd tell you more but I've got to go wax my Delorean. Oh wait...
Sounds great Bill Gates!
BTW, what kind of gas mileage does your Delorean get?
Well I've converted it to run on food scraps (in case you didn't already know), but in relative terms I can go approximately 5 miles on one banana peel. She seems to like the octane boost provided by old Windows 95 CD's, which 'up' the mileage to 10 miles per banana peel per CD.
microsoft cancels a feature in windows only to bust out and advertise a new one on their windows vista site. you watch.
So, is WinFS being pushed back to the version of Windows after Vista? Great, we won't be seeing it until the year 2074
I think the plan is to keep cutting planned features until what's left is what they've already got finished, and call it Windows Vista. And who will disagree?
It's like the joke about carving a sculpture of an elephant from a block of stone. You simply hammer off everything that doesn't look like an elephant.
No. It is being incorporated into MySQL.
Awesome, I gotta get me one of those cars.
No, I fear we wont see WinFS until at least then yg17.
You mean SQL Server. Parts will also make it into Visual Studio.
The big news here is that WinFS is dead as a part of the OS. Being that it has been promised in one form or another since before Win NT4 it's a big change for MS.
