[News] Starting with Vista and Ending Up with GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

New Directions - Ubuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| After my recent adventures with Vista, I decided to try a new direction. I've 
| been considering trying Ubuntu on my "test" laptop, the Fujitsu-Siemens S2110 
| (AMD Turion 64).  
| [...]
| I downloaded the Ubuntu CD image, burned it to a disk, swapped the hard 
| drives and booted the CD. Less than an hour later the installation was 
| finished, and it was up and running. I have tried this several times before, 
| most recently with SuSE Linux, and this one the first time that it seemed to 
| have gotten all of the major laptop devices and configurations figured out 
| properly. I'm impressed.

| My explorer shuts down all the time and the whole OS freezes and I have to 
| restart a lot.  So here it is to those fucking Microsoft ASSHOLES, why don’t 
| you do more testing on your fucking OS’s, this fucking VISTA IS SHIT!!!!  I 
| hope one of you assholes reads this because not just me is mad about it, but 
| I read a lot of shit that people hate it!     


How Much Does Vista Suck? Let Me Count the Ways

| Vista is so hell bent on protecting you from yourself that it has rendered 
| itself practically unusable. And these are only a few of the things that 
| bother me about it. There are many others, too many to detail here.  
| As a technology journalist, I need to test software on different operating 
|      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| systems, and as such, it means I have to deal with Vista even though I would 
| just as soon not use it again.  


Will Windows Vista Succeed In 2008? Don't Count On It

,----[ Quote ]
| Vista has certainly been slow out of the gate. Sure, Microsoft is putting the 
| operating system on newly shipped systems, but Vista sales didn’t benefit 
| from the upgrade surge that previous OSes got upon release. A year after it 
| began shipping, less than one percent of corporate desktops are running

Windows Vista kicked out of Olympics PCs

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft's latest version of Windows is too risky to implement for the 
| important computers managing the 2008 Olympic summer games in Beijing, said 
| the event's computer supplier and sponsor Lenovo.  


Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

,----[ Quote
| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to 
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the 
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.  
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and 
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based 
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and 
| Lenovo. 
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said. 


Interesting comment from CompUSA

,----[ Quote ]
| Every single one of them he said was returned from consumers... and that they 
| (CompUSA) couldn't ship them back. As he heard, Microsoft wasn't giving 
| credit back for unsold or returned copies... and didn't want the returned 
| figures made public... He wouldn't say that every single one of them 
| exchanged for a copy of Xp, he didn't know if that was true. So, I asked how 
| many boxes did they have. Same glare, followed with a "You do not want to 
| know" type statement.      


Windows Vista: Sold but not deployed

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft says it remains happy with enterprise sales of Vista -- however, 
| the software behemoth acknowledges that many businesses which have bought 
| Vista licences are yet to deploy the software.
