What Absolute Junk Vista Ultimate 64 bit OS is


R

Ron

This is my second time around testing Vista ultimate 64 bit and after much
testing I cannot believe what a heap of absolute rubbish this OS is. How
many years did it take Microsoft to develop this junk?

I have the latest drivers/software/ quad core intel 6700 CPU with a modern
motherboard and running 8GB of RAM. Yeah....I anticipate that you are all
screaming and tearing your hair out and gnashing your teeth because I have
told the truth about this piece of OS junk.

Vista Ultimate will not remain stable if you load and use a substantial
amount of software on your computer. Yet both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of
XP Pro are relatively stable.

I am a business man and I can tell you that vista is unreliable and a total
waste of money. In fact microsoft should pay anyone to use this piece of
rubbish and the amount of time wasted attempting to trace down problems.

Vista is much slower than XP Pro and XP Pro 64 to boot up and shut down.

I don't care how much you microsoft certificate guys hiss and boo....Vista
Ultimate 64 bit cannot compare in efficiency and stability to XP when you
load the OS with numerous heavy duty applications, eg Photoshop CS3 etc.

Even the CPU company Intel will not run vista on their computers (google
it!!)

Vista would have to be conidered along with Windows ME as the worse OSes.

Cheers

You must not be running much software on your pc with your listed 160GB
Seagate hard drive. I have a total of 4TB internally!! My vista ultimate
partition alone is 200GB.

Are you running a business on your PC?

If you are running programs/software that is not
64-bit, then you need to use the 32-bit version of Vista.

no as a matter of fact im not.....:p

i can assure you though there is no app on earth which will stress the
OS & H/W more
than what you see in that pic....regardless of how much overall storage
you have i bet your machine is still not up to the task.....

i know you have a q6700
what else....?

Actually no. Most of us have probably just put you where you belong:
in our kill files.

Buh-bye bozo.

Blimey, mate, steady on! OK, so I'm only using the 32-bit Vista Home
Premium, but I've gotta say that it is TOTALLY, ROCK SOLID. I've had the
odd application crash, but Vista?..... NEVER.

There's something wrong with your hardware or your drivers.

Despite Vista glee club out there most reviewers have published opinions
about Vista 64 that are not much different than skunksmash's experience.
Doubtless a small number of users are able to get by with Vista 64. I
suspect they spend more time tweaking the OS than actually doing real work
on their computers.
XP 64 was never anything more than an experiment. In its present state Vista
64 is not much better.
Vista 64 is not reliable for mission critical computing with available
software and drivers. Most peripheral OEMs only got stable Vista 32 drivers
a year or so after the OS was released, most devote nearly zero effort to
the 64 bit version.
I enjoyed the post concerning 64 bit software: Adobe is promising a 64 bit
version of Photoshop for Vista but I am sure they will have to specify
compatibility with a specific range of hardware because of driver issues.
Game publishers cannot even write for DX10 so I doubt that 64 bit games are
high on their to-do list.
Raw as Vista 64 is Adobe is supposedly not even working on a 64 bit Mac
version of Photoshop because the Mac programming tools are even worse than
for Vista.

I'm running x64 with 6GB of RAM on my desktop, x86 on my laptop, and
have servers running 2008 x64, 2003 x64 and x86, plus a couple older
boxes around.

I honestly can't remember the last time I had a bluescreen that I wasn't
able to track down to a bad driver (nVidia, I'm looking at YOU) or bad
hardware (Antec, normally I love ya, but that NeoPower was a pain)

I really think this depends on your hardware. I had some issues when I
went to Vista x64 many moons ago, but on my most recent reinstall (with
a new Vista SP1 DVD), I had zero issues. Nearly every device was
working out of the box, ATI (video), Canon (printer/scanner/copier) and
HP (colour laser) all had x64 drivers available that were as up to date
as the x86 drivers.

My attempt on my laptop was not nearly so successful.

On my particular hardware, I'd highly recommend x64.

Ron, how are the drives mounted, in other posts you mention 4TB on line.
I use removable SATA trays (The skeleton kind with no inner case) and
even with those and all case fans possible installed I get heat problems
with more than one large drive in there.

If you have your Vista partition setup as 200GB you must be some kind of
"special"

That's nothing to brag about since any intelligent user limits the size of
the OS partition to only the needed amount to help prevent fragmentation.
The intelligent user would then divide up the remaining disk space amongst
various uses.

For instance I have 2TB of HD space in my system.

My Vista partition is 40GB and even that's a little larger than I should
have made it. I then have a programs partition and a games partition.
Another partition is setup to handle only downloaded files and documents.
Beyond that the rest is all backup storage in case of a system failure.

My Performance and Reliability Monitor rates the system at an 8.4. The only
reason why it's that low is due to some older applications that I use
occasionally hanging. There are newer versions that I could upgrade to for
free, but I just haven't taken the time. So that's my fault and not the
fault of the OS.

Then again I have a feeling that you're just trolling for fun.

Not to mention the fact that his PSU is overkill in some areas and weak in
others.

I run only a 375W PSU in mine, but my rails are stronger than his in quite a
few important areas.

I haven't had any issue with Vista x64.

My system stays up for weeks at a time. I only reboot when installing some
silly software that needs to update system files (like Windows Updates).

I keep my system constantly overclocked at 1600FSB as well. Vista is stable
as a ROCK.

I'm sorry if you're having issues with your computer, but it's not Vista's
fault.
