  • Windows Vista is the latest release of Microsoft Windows, a line of graphical operating systems used on personal computers, including home and business desktops, notebook computers, Tablet PCs, and media centers. Prior to its announcement on July 22, 2005, Windows Vista was known by its codename "Longhorn".[1] Development was completed on November 8, 2006; over the following three months it was released in stages to computer hardware and software manufacturers, business customers, and retail channels. On January 30, 2007, it was released worldwide to the general public,[2] and was made available for purchase and downloading from Microsoft's web site.[3] The release of Windows Vista comes more than five years after the introduction of its predecessor, Windows XP, making it the longest time span between two releases of Windows versions.

  • If you want to learn your way around Windows Vista, this demo is a good place to start. You'll discover the basics of using the Start menu, the taskbar, the desktop, and Windows Sidebar. These four areas help you access and interact with your programs, files, and folders.

  • Use beta products for only testing and learning. But if you want to use it as a primary OS, then i suggest you not to use beta, it can get you stuck at anytime ;; at the time when you most need the computer Stick out tongue

  • my sys has pro with vista...after installing it my sys keeps on restarting...

  • Even i faced the same. I tried the Repair option , and it says that there is a problem with incompatible driver,s or some IRQ is conflicting. Even the repair Option couldn't repair the installation, I had to reformat and do a clean install of vista.

    This problem is peculiar after you do a change in some hardware. I think MS should resolve this bug.

    beta versions are actually testers for errors and they are made with a validity of 180 days. Microsoft collects these errors which you have gone through while using beta versions, rectifies it in theeir "not published" final copy, and once the system is alomost stable they release[publish] it and even after that the "error experiments" are continued, they collect the informations and then what we recieve in the name of "updates" are nothing but those peice of small codes which corrects what is incorrect in an OS, after it is made public....and all those major corrections that have to be made and are huge in size, are collected and collectively they are released as service packs....

     

    So all these updates and service packs are nothing bt bug-fixers.....

     

    I wish there was a update patch or service pack available for msdn forums?  ...wat say guys.... lol

  • I strongly agree with you Anoop. MS should release and install a service pack for this forums ... it is really required. hehehehe. Even other PHP forums are better than this one Smile

    I think MS needs a renovation to this forum.

    ya they should..hope the moderators are reading this...

     

    well, the php forums are very very close to perfect, because they are so user freindly to use, its just like windows in OS and PHPBB in forums....i have hardly seen any flaws with php forums.....

  • @Anoop - The best thing about the PHPBB and other PHP forums is that they are opensource and ANTI-MICROSOFT ...

    So, it hardly has any bug.......
    Sunday, May 13, 2007 7:43 PM
  • well, i dont think being anti-microsoft, can make them bug free, but open source does help....

  • IF it was from MS, there would have been more possibilities of bugs Stick out tongue
