Yes I agree Vistia is junk, the last build was a overloaded, resorce grabing pice of junk, not mention the explorer shell is 10x more unstable the dreaded windowsME explore.

As a MSDN member I have to agree it sucks!!!



But on the same note how does this benefit us as you note?

It is well known that DRM systems reduce performance, and often prevent your system from working properly when they mess up. This disadvantage for windows is however only a small one for the average user. Hopefully it will help people lean towards linux soon, and help people lean towards ReactOS once it is more complete. Do not expect ROS to actaully grow in popularity anytime soon though because of this.

BTW: The article this is from mentions the rewrite of Windows Vista. I remember reading a very interesting article on how they had to rewrite windows. Someone said something to Bill Gates like "windows won't work" and when they went to do a diagram of all the components in windows, it was gigantic. Does anyone know the URL of this or a similiar article?

Agreed. DRM is bad. Although, i do like the look vista has. Microsoft makes me sad.

actually, as an official betatester I love it... i dont have the transparent borders enabled tho... for the rest, the new features are nice, and it seems to be coming together more and more these days.

IllI tryed 5231, and 5270, and found them both to be extreamly unstable.

What build are you using?

The biggest propaganda that we can do its,
When Vista released we released a working version ! At the same time !!
But our differencial ? We not have any of the 13 DRM protections in vista !

i Cant imagine bigger propaganda !
