    Vista rocks, though I did disable UAC, other than that, stable and fast. :cool:

    Perhaps you missed my sig? I sold my hp dv9500t last year (3 months after buying it) and bought a Macbook Pro instead. By comparison, it's a bargain at twice the price; much nicer hardware and a superior OS. Once OSX 10.6 comes out later this summer, it'll have features that Windows can only dream of... OpenCL, Grand Central, etc.

    At work, we've eliminated all of our Windows servers (except for one) in favor of HP-UX. MUCH much much higher scalability (32 CPU's and 288 GB of RAM - try doing THAT with Windows! :rolleyes: ) and far better reliability. The one remaining server is Exchange email server, and we're evaluating alternatives this year to eliminate that one as well.

    Adios Microsoft! and good riddance. :cool:
    That's why I come here - for the lulz!! Thanks, and keep em coming!! :D IMO Windows 2000 was the last decent Microsoft OS. Each one after that has been successively worse in all regards - security, stability, performance, etc. They rush the product to market, half-baked, then spend the next 3 years patching all the flaws. No thanks!

    64-bit Windows Server 2008 Datacenter can handle 2TB of system RAM... just FYI.

    I think because it makes next to no money.

    Also, this thread = Fail. Was done a couple of days ago.

    Or who have no idea how to use the OS and blame Microsoft for thier own ignorance and lack of knowledge. I do get tired of people bad mouthing something because they choose to remain ignorant and not seek knowledge for themselves.

    Oh, I see. So you just come here to troll then. Well that's nice. Now just go back to your Sports Illustrated and read up on the latest news on financial derivatives and credit default swaps.

    Well, that's ultimately what I am getting at. I just avoid saying "ignorant" because people too often take it very offensively.

    Now don't go confusing the poor boy with FACTS like that. He'll begin to question his Sports Illustrated sources for financial news.
