Angry How can a company like Microsoft do something like this?!

Windows XP outshines Vista in benchmarking test

New tests have revealed that Windows XP with the beta Service Pack 3 has twice the performance of Vista, even with its long-awaited Service Pack 1.

CNet rates Vista one of "worst products in history"

CNet has named what they claim are the worst technology products in history. Probably the most controversial is the inclusion of Windows Vista which sits alongside the Sinclair C5, the Gizmondo and the Tamagotchi.

Re: How can a company like Microsoft do something like this?!

I'm going to be blogging about this this week. I can't believe I wasted money buying Vista only to uninstall and go back to XP!

Re: How can a company like Microsoft do something like this?!

The US is doomed. What else can they screw up?

The only light at the end of the tunnel is Boeing getting a short-term competitive advantage over Airbus. However, I rather get the feeling that this will be used to announce an almost inevitable shifting of manufacturing to China. This will effectively secure the future of Airbus, whilst putting a final nail in the Boeing coffin.

Stock Markets are booming today because the Fed is likely to reduce interest rates again. Can the Fed not understand that the US is going to run out of money altogether? You cannot solve a Credit Crunch by rewarding reluctant lenders less!

It is just unfortunate that this is election year. You can now be assured that no sensible policy will come out of Washington until after the next election.

José, you are asking the wrong question. Microsoft is one of the few companies that can do this because they have a monopoly on the market.

You think. It is only a matter of time before they get the rug pulled from under their feet.

There are plenty of companies that covet Microsoft position. Frankly few still believe that Microsoft deserves to be a market leader. An assault on their position will come.

Re: How can a company like Microsoft do something like this?!

The sad part is that these are not ads: it's all true. Mark my words, when people are giving up on Vista pirated version, something is really not good...

You don't need a good Mac unless you are doing video editing for broadcast TV or something. Just get a mini.

Get a 24" iMac, and use your current screen as a 2nd screen for it.
