pirates pirate all the way......I am a proud Vista Ultimate Owner !
One more reason is Windows XP itself. Windows XP is a big competitor to Vista.
one gotta say that m$ were insane when they predicted those vista sales figures sometime ago. who'd buy an os at that price ( except die-hard followers)
this was known by all of us. this was going to happen one or the other day.
Well that really isn't that surprising. Vista isn't really worth an upgrade for the mega bucks considering nothing is revolutionary in comparision to non-Microsoft OSes. I'd rather buy three portable hard disks for more space than upgrade to Vista. Making it more difficult for pirates isn't going to help, the draconian measures will always be circumvented, legitimate users will suffer more and those who can't validate or buy genuine copies will move to other alternatives.
The problem of vista is
1) Too expensive
2) Resource hungry
XP Rules !
Hello how could you install Windows Vista Ultimate with 768 MB RAM........
Companies nowday blame pirates for no reason. They only reason why it did not sell for them is because of all those anti-piracy crap,resource hungry, application compatibility and lot more. The reason they it is pirates because they did not have anything else to say. They can not blame on their products so pirates are their target.
^^ yeah, quite right to some extent!!
Because 512 MB is the minimum requirement.
Even if you do not meet the minimum system requirements, you can install Vista Ultimate but Aero will be disabled. Yeah, that defeats the purpose but at least you can install it.
^^ Yeah, aryayush was quick to reply. I have vista installed on my desktop back at home. It is perfectly patched with updates disabled so i guess I am gonna enjoy it for atleast 1 year or so Only down side is that I was not able to use aero as I guess the prime pulling factor is the onboard gfx card. Since I am no more at home so I didnt get enough time to fiddle around with it but whatever I saw, gave me an impression that vista is incredibly cool. It indeed is but there is nothing compelling to jump to Vista which already demands good hardware. My XP SP2(forced legit) is pretty much satisfying from all aspects. But whatever.....Vista does look Sexxxxy. The logon screen is something to die for. You cant achieve similar effects with other utilities on xp. The new dreamscape of stardock also beautifies vista to a new level.
East or west piracy is best , Piracy rocks for me . Long live pirates
3) Consumes Hell lot of HDD space (around 8GB to run smoothly ).. Providing no extra NOTABLE FEATURES than XP. Again you have to install all softwares (Mainly antivirus ) which will again take some more space..
Regarding Themes we can get Equivalent themes for XP.. I dont need just 3D for a cost of 8GB..
XP Still rulez for me!!!!
Well. I do not agree. It is not good to praise the pirates. If you have money to buy the software buy it. Even the software developers needs money.
don't they know even a lil bit of economics? They seriously expect ppl to buy a software for 5000 bucks in India??
XP was a hit because back then we were using 98SE or NT4.0 ... and now with Vista , we've got XP , Server 2003 ... then why would we invest our hard earned money on some OS that really hasn't made its mark yet .. MS just gives bullshit .. its not the piracy .. its XP ...
Well, whos gonna pay heavy for lower performance! Not a sane soul.
The point bein... no one with a tight fist & a tighter mind will think of goin for Vista right now when XP's bein such a good boy for quite sometime.
Regarding the enhanced look of Vista... beauty-concious ppl'll just go for the Transformation Packs which r free & aplenty. We've got transformation packs from Longhorn to Vista to Macs!!!
Vista's a loser right now. Mayb a price similar to XP or free upgrade to Vista'll encourage a good set of legal users. That's the only way they can make Vista successful right now. Then too.. many'll hesitate for the mere fact that performance'll b hampered(it can b adjusted again) & more importantly... compatibility issues'll crop up for many fav applications and appendages(like camera/phone/printer software).
But a day will come in india ven vista will be freely avelbl vit all hardware wala and then it will rule insted of xp.
Then they will another OS from MS. The same thing is bound to happen same has what is happening now.
