CAFC Gives Microsoft Word Stay, and I HATE Vista!

,----[ Quote ]
| Then someone pointed out to me in a comment that it was on PACER, just indexed under the 
| filing date of Microsoftâs request for the stay rather than the date it was granted, 
| which is ridiculous enough, but then things took a much weirder turn for me.  I HATE 
| VISTA!!!!!
| Like virtually everyone that owns a Vista machine, my primary computer, which is a 
| laptop I carry with me everywhere in my travels, has seen its better days.  This 
| particular machine is the ripe old age of 6 months old, and as near as I can tell its 
| better days were those days prior to the loading of Vista, which as far as I can tell is 
| a computer virus!  Nothing operates properly on a Vista machine, not even Internet 
| Explorer.  Oddly enough, Mozilla Firefox is more stable on a Vista machine than IE, go 
| figure.



Acer: Vista Home Basic is a lemon

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft is effectively smuggling through a price hike for Windows
| Vista - by making the entry-level version so poor that no-one will
| want to use it. So says Jim Wong, senior veep at Acer, the world's
| number four PC maker, who told UK hack Jon Honeyball: "The new
| [Vista] experience you hear of, if you get Basic, you won't feel
| it at all. There's no [Aero] graphics, no Media Center, no
| remote control."


Acer: PC industry 'disappointed' with Vista

,----[ Quote
| Acer president Gianfranco Lanci became the first major PC manufacturer to
| openly attack Microsoft over the Windows Vista operating system in the
| Financial Times Deutschland on Monday.
| Lanci said the operating system was riddled with problems and gave users and
| businesses no reason to buy a new PC, according to the report. Taiwan-based
| Acer is the world's fourth-largest PC manufacturer, after HP, Dell and
| Lenovo.
| "The whole industry is disappointed with Windows Vista," Lanci said.
