can you say 'huh?'


This post is dedicated to the many people who have just started to install Microsoft's famous new Vista system on their PCs and laptops and had run into the confined errors that they've had to go through by reformatting the hard drive; getting all the necessary drivers for unsupported hardware; and finding supported software and most of all paid a very nasty price for just the fun of it.

Click on the image above and print it on a sticker A4 paper and - I dare you - to stick it where-ever you see the "WoW!" message from Microsoft dealers where-ever you may reside.

It'll be one strong message that even 6 years in the making Microsoft is still so full of crap.

I've just started using vista, and I'm not having any problems at all with it.
I just love how beautiful it is, especially with aeroglass and dreamscene on.
Although I can't exactly say it's light on the system resources.
Invest in a good graphics card and processor before installing....

The only change that Microsoft has done in the new system is the look and feel.

Nothing else that is truly jaw dropping.

really!
I was interested to try the WoW experience, but day after day i see ppl criticize Windows and cheer other OSs like MAC and Linux, which i want to move to but afraid of compatibility issue,

P.S. what that image means? it shows nothing about Vista :)

welcome to my blog. And your blog is nice, too except for the fact that everything is jumbled up - maybe you should fix that? :S

As for the image; its an edit of a windows vista error box that would often say : 'error, operation could not be completed". The point of putting it up on a 'WOW' poster is to show how 'good' vista really is just from installing it without anything else.

hope that cleared things up.

i didn't got it!
as long as this poster is edited, it would not have the desired effect, any1 can edit whatever but this won't prove it's not working, meaning, for me it was to be more convincing if a real error msg was there

antway, why all this 'aggressiveness' against Windows? don't like it, don't use it :)

because sooner or later we will have to migrate to Vista since Microsoft will lift support for XP like it did with windows 98.

thats why
