I won a laptop! Answered

I entered a Sony video contest and now I've won a Vaio laptop. It'll be a little while before it arrives, but when it does it will be the first laptop I've ever owned. I have one for work, but pretty much all of my machines have been PC boxes that I've built myself.

I guess this means that I'll finally see what Windows Vista is, or isn't, about.

Vista is most bad OS version from Microsoft :) XP more stable and faster, you will see :)

To be clear - I mean if PC used for work. For intertainment purposes like watch video, surf the net etc it is cool and I like UI and new features. But vista slow(I have 2G of RAM and average 7600GO card).

and after the year of use it is really unstable :) Sometimes I think to delete it and install XP again, but I think about money - I paid for it when got laptop and would pay for XP.

I usually find I have to reformat every year no matter what OS i'm using at the time, it just makes it feel fresher.

IMHO, Vista is only good if you've got Home Premium - Basic is a waste without Media Center and Ultimate chews up systems resources, but Home Premium is a good deal, if you don't mind shutting off some of Vista's background programs.

If you're a media person like I am, I think you'll enjoy it once you tweak the settings a bit.

If you look through them you should be able to identify which one's mine pretty easily. My username makes more sense when it's in all caps.

. Doh! . I guessed right, but the "play on letters" didn't occur to me. Almost embarrassed that I missed that - I usually score very high on pattern matching tests. I just went by which video fit my perception of our beloved fungus amungus best. And the "bandit pumpkin" at the beginning looks suspiciously like Robot.

I've never used Vista, but I consider it significant that a PC offered as a prize by NASA had Vista installed, but included a free downgrade to XP!
