Vista is shite


CEO of Acer, Gianfranco Lanci, said the entire (PC) industry was disappointed by Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system."Stability is certainly a problem," he said.

Well if you are foolish enough to buy a new machine with Vista, or upgrade, get used to this fucking error message... get used to the fact that Windows won't find a solution and when you finally re-boot it cannot even re-load the Windows you had open .... and don't even THINK of using Firefox.

Vista is a shiny, slow, bag of shite.

Infoworld had this fascinating note yesterday ..

Microsoft cut the retail price of Windows Vista Home Basic in China to 499 renminbi ($65.80), from 1,521 renminbi -- a 67 percent reduction. The Home Premium version of Vista also got a significant price reduction, down 50 percent from 1,802 renminbi to 899 renminbi.

You watch. Soon they won't be able even to give it away.
