Back to XP

This week I'll be converting my brand new laptop from Windows Vista back to XP.

Apparently, everybody's doing it. Everybody who feels Vista is a joke of a system, that is!
Windows Vista includes an array of “features” that you don't want. These features will make your computer less reliable and less secure. They'll make your computer less stable and run slower. They will cause technical support problems. They may even require you to upgrade some of your peripheral hardware and existing software. And these features won't do anything useful. In fact, they're working against you. They're digital rights management (DRM) features built into Vista at the behest of the entertainment industry—And you don't get to refuse them...

* They decide which programs you can and can't use on your computer
* They decide which features of your computer or software you can use at any given moment
* They force you to install new programs even when you don't want to (and, of course, pay for the privilege)
* They restrict your access to certain programs and even to your own data files

And hopefully this week also I'll somehow salvage my old laptop too. Either get a new power supply fixed. Or, if that can't be done, somehow turn the hard drive into an external hard drive with a USB thing, or something! heh heh

  1. Man, if I could find another reliable operating system that would work with my lappy, I wouldn't even XP let alone Vista!

  2. I love XP, I've had no problems with it. Let's send the entertainment industry to heck where they belong for all the unnecessary crap they've made Gates foist on us.
