My network consists of 800 xp SP3 machines except for one mine, which has vista. Now due to my constant experimtation with random bits of sotware my pc could do with a rebuild. Now do I stick with Vista..... bring back Xp or do i go for Windows 7 RC 1.
I find vista is a sack of s**t at work but at home i love it!
Tell me what you guys would do if it was you....
Then my quake and halflike wont run!!!!
Get VMWare for all your tickering.
Vote for win 7 here
and i'm with K.C.Leblanc here, vmware to run other OSs.
I already have VM ware runing on it but i like to tinker in the "real world" as it were .
XP, tis stable. If Mr Microsoft suddenly disables all the Windows 7 beta's you'll be stuck and you just know it'll be the one day you need your machine working 100%
I was not gonna tocuh windoiws 7 beta, RC1 is appartenly on realease for the 5th of May!!
I'd go for XP - boring as hell but at least it is pretty stable. I have Windows 7 on a laptop at home and it was great to begin with but now it runs like a pig in mud.
I gave up with Vista as I got hacked off with some older peripherals and software spassing about.
Ubuntu, VirtualBox and Wine for all your needs. Get a good book and stretch your mind
NetBSD, Fluxbox+SimDock+Thunar (for the desktop), VirtualBox+Win7 beta, Open Office and Opera. What more could you possibly need?
Dunno if i could bring myself to install opera!! Ill miss all the Internet Explorer crashed and errors
Not that im against the joys of linux and such like, but gonna stick with the windows.
Think i might dig out my XP disk then.....
I'd hold out for RC1 of 7. Dunno what TechGuy's done to make it run like a pig in mud but it's still running a dream on both my main system and on my el-crappo laptop. Could of course be some driver/software issue, but pedantically the same could be said of many of Vista's issues.
I can speak on the behalf of SimpleSI:
Use Windows 98
I think the title said "Just for Fun". JJ99 has yet to stipulate any masochistic tendencies (other than using Vista) so should probably skip by on 98.
Go the whole ruddy hog and break out the Windows Me disc!
