Blasphemy ?

Posted: 01-18-2009, 09:23 AM
I wonder if I am the only apple mac book pro user who finds themselves
working almost exclusively in Vista ? It gets an awful lot of bad press but
I quite like it and the more I use it the more I am liking it ! I like OS X
for the sexy unixy tools you get by default, but I cannot get a driver for
my Dell AIO, printer.
I have vista loaded as a VM but cannot run FSX in it so I am now finding
myself working about 98% booted straight into vista. My only gripe is that
it will not sleep properly.

I have downloaded Win 7 and have it in a VM session but am a bit baffled as
to what is does better than vista? Am I missing something fundamental ?

Bottom line Microsoft : Good job with Vista !

I began playing with Win7 beta two days ago and am absolutely
flabbergasted with its SPEED compared to Vista on this same machine!

EVERYTHING is faster.

UTTER rubbish.
I have Vista Home Premium and Windows 7 on the same computer(separate
drives); and the Vista speed comparison to Windows7 is what XP is like
compared to Vista.
Same hardware, so you can not blame that!

Microsoft OSs are getting slower to use, and the embedded IE8 is too slow to
use.
Always stuck to IE, but not now, except for IE7 in XP Pro and Vista HP.

Try giving an honest answer, just for a change.

I agree with regards to IE8. I loaded onto vista but it is unpleasantly
slow.

You are utterly stupid...

everyone is reporting faster speeds with windows7, including me,
and you are saying the opposite..

But from all your other posts you don’t seem too smart anyway so im not
surprised that you would post something like that

its to be expected.

At last, a balanced view from a Mac user!

The problem is, most minority groups - like Mac users and Linux users -
feel the need to evangelise for their chosen platform and knock the big guy.

It's just human nature and says little or nothing about the platforms
themselves. Be assured, if history had run differently and Apple had come
to dominate the personal computer market, the few using Microsoft Windows
would be crowing about how few viruses there were on their platform, and how
much better Windows was than Mac OS.

Having used both, I can honestly say that both have their strong points,
both have their weaknesses, and both do an acceptable job. To be honest,
the similarities vastly outnumber the differences.

It really is a matter of personal preference, and there is no mileage in
being dogmatic or closed-minded.

So again, I'm delighted to hear from an open-minded Mac user. You are in a
minority!

I have Vista Home Basic, XP Home, and Win7 on this machine. Vista is
slightly slower than XP and both are a LOT slower than Win7.

I did. Win7 is incredibly fast on this machine.

Try not being such a cranky old ass.

Compared to Vista, Windows 7 boots way faster, anti-virus applications
initialize way faster, sidebar gadgets open way faster, applications open
way faster.

IE8 is fine for me. I haven't noticed it being slow particularly..

Not everyone, just most. Not everyone reported Vista as being slower than
XP either, just most. It is clearly some kind of driver/hardware issue.

For me, Vista is faster than XP, no question about it. I only have 7
installed in a VM right now, so I can't do a real comparison. But its
performance in VPC is fine.
