    @DefecTalisman: Originally from the US.

    Yep you get some of the compilers when you install the basic editions of Visual Studio otherwise you get NADT (Not A Damn Thing... for those of you who don't know) :(

    Oh Come on! they give the people a crappy product and you just say "give them a break"? Vista was a drawing board rush! it's not even worth the dollars you pay for! I'm waiting for SP1... and these pains in our asses get fixed by SP1 or Micro$oft will lose a big part of the world market share...

    @ mr kennedy: you paid for vista?
    I got it as oem, so yes maybe I paid for it in the total of the laptop, but at least I didnt take it off the shelf and say here I want this.

    @Trixter : forgive my ignorence, visual studio is what?

    There are free editions of it, including C++ which has the FULL FEATURED C++ Compiler which is standards compliant.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/express/

    The IDE's are a little cut down from their paid for counterparts but they are ideal for students.

    Windows Vista isn't full of bugs. Its just lacking features/has to many features. Give M$ time...

    I'll say that M$ will just kill people with WinXP in 2010, a.k.a (Windows XP is no longer supported and developers are to make it compatible with the newer versions).

    I use Vista [OEM] and I got like 10 errors each day, from CONFIG.NT, ActiveX, missing .NET component. I think Vista is doing sth like this:
    If you install driver.dll, delete driver.dll
    If you reinstall CONFIG.NT, delete CONFIG.NT by 3 days
    If you install an old program, return "Runtime Error", "16-Bit MS-DOS Error"

    Buying Vista would be cool only in Mar 2008, last time during WinXP launch, I bought it 8 months after the launch (in my country).

    P.S. Vista is not based on Longhorn, which is based on XP (e.g. Vista's boot system is different from XP's boot system and that is why you cannot dual boot to XP because Vista will not load once you install XP).
    P.P.S. That is why Vista came late, it should come in early 2006, they throw the Longhorn code away after like 1 year in development.

    @Bryon: nice dynamic sig, could i ask where you got it(doh, realized its a link)?(p.s. that infraction I got, when it says it deducted something. Is that credits and if so why so few?)

    @microsoft: thanx for making my daily life an intresting one, couldn't imagine my day without windows errors. In fact I seem to remember when windows 3.1 came out. Dont remember getting any errors there.

    Oh, bolox. It is a bad day man. So hows the weather by us today? I am stuck inside right now.

    Where in jhb you at man? I am in greenside running a restraunt(Mama Tembo's) You must stop by and have a drink on me man.
    Edit:
    Just saw this now...

    You can dual boot vista and xp, vista can multi boot to.

    Go to microsoft communities for more information regarding this. Every day there is a new person asking how.
    I am just stuck due to the fact I didnt get a CD with my Vista OS.
    Also laptop deos funny things with ubuntu.
