Microsoft Corporation Complaint - Vista - The AOL of operating systems
JOLIET, ILLINOIS -- A complete resource hog. Too many incompatibilities to list. Too many bugs at this point. Best to wait at least a year until they fix their screw-ups. The reason you need at least 1 gig of RAM is that the OS will take up about 3/4 right at the start!!! Unbelievable!!! It's just plain bloated code and too much interference (namely all the ask and answer pop-ups). What Microsoft did with this system was just plain insulting to user intelligence thinking we're all just a bunch of 'user idiots' that need to be held by the hand and guided every step of the way . Get ready to fork over some cash too in upgrades to your system or serious cash for a whole new system for this dog.
Get at least 3 gigs of RAM for this system and a 512mb graphics card. Vista eats memory like pac-man on a power-pellet. It should come with a free coupon for Tylenol.
