I was in Grade 7 in ‘79.

Ah… you’re younger than I am, but only by three years…

Good one TJohn

Krissy, from what all the teccy types around are saying, don’t bother with upgrading to Win8.  They reckon it’s going to be another DODO, like Vista was.

you say so? will have to tell my man.. it is almost no money, but do not want to end up with something like vista.. or worst.. millenium…stll have shivers after this one wink

oh today evening the joy of installing everything…

Yeah Krissy there was quite a discussion about it, both on the forums and else where.

General consensus is that this seems to be a Micorsoft trend, make a good OS version, then a turkey. Millenium ugh, Xp good, Vista ugh Win7 good so win 8 looks very much like another ugh, and a couple or 3 people that I was talking to were running pre release versions either on other PCs or in virtual box, so it wasn’t uninformed comment.

And yes the reinstalling is the worst part of buying a spanking new PC, isn’t it.

I use an HP lappie that came with Vista, and have never had a problem. Running it with Norton Internet Security has kept it clean.
XP on the other hand gave me fits on my previous comp.
I guess it’s a case of “Your results may vary.” smile

I’m with ya on that one tjohn. I have used many microsoft OS and I have been using Vista 64 bit now for the last four years or so…I also use Norton Security and I have never had a single problem with Vista. Once Richard Haseltine explained to me how to install 32 bit programs outside the programs folder, directly on the “C” drive, I have not had a single problem from any program I have. I think that is what screwed people up with it. It is a 64 bit system and they would try to install 32 bit programs in the programs folder…won’t work! Once you learn this, it is smooth sailing all the way. I have over 2 teri-bytes of stuff on mine, and it all works fine with regular clean up, defrag, and registry cleaning. I have windows 7 on my other computer and it works good too, but I have had a crash with it already and I just got it back in Jan of this year. The proof is in the pudding!

Still giving Win 8 a miss, regardless, I am actually not looking forward to getting Win7 on this new one, but then I do tend to be a bit old fashioned sometimes.

It dies seem to me that each version of windoze that comes out MS wants to take oever more and more of the processes that users are quite happy doing themselves. Eventually I guess it will get to the stage that you will only need to turn the PC on, and it will do the rest for you without any human input.

THen we can all go back to pencil and paper for images.  rolleyes

BTW Music I am going one stage further than installing outside of programs,  I have ordered a PC with 2 hard drives, and all programs will be installed on the 2nd hard drive. I already keep most of my content on externals, so installation is not going to be too much of a hassle this time (I hope)

I know you don’t watch TV, but there is a US television sit-com called “The Big Bang Theory” with an Theoretical Physicist named Dr. Sheldon Cooper who has a genius IQ, an eidetic memory, a huge ego, and absolutely no social skills. On one episode, he had to replace a stolen lap-top and related the following:
“My new computer came with Windows 7. Windows 7 is much more user friendly than Windows Vista. I don’t like that.”

Thumbs up for the theme. Brings back many fond and not so fond memories( most of not so fond goes to the huge number of spanish soap opera’s we’ve been fed on the daily basis). Buffy, Sabrina, Alo’ alo, The 70’s how, Step by step and there was this show which told the life of a family with three kids I believe and a mother and father who was a psychotherapist. I remember one of the sons was named Mike and the other Ben. Those are still my absolute favorites. Wished I saw this one earlier.

Now that’s just plain wrong on so many levels. LOL

Why anyone would not want a system to be “user-friendly” is beyond me.

Yes, but he’s not crazy. His Mother had him tested. LOL

And when he wants you to get out of “his spot” on the couch, never ask him why.

And I would do a render of that show, but it would just be four guys and three girls sitting in a living room eating Thai food.
