    Fixing Windows Vista 

    There are somethings that just completely annoy me about Windows Vista that I really would like to see changed before I upgrade to Windows 7. This is not a post just to bash Windows Vista because believe me, I am really excited about Windows 7 and can’t wait to see what the new version has to offer all of us in October. Here is the list.

    Cancel/Allow: This happens every time I download, install, then run a new piece of software. Before the program starts up there will be a window that comes up which asks me if I would like to allow this program to run, even though I just told it to run. I know that there might be a way to get around this in the settings some way but the point is there shouldn’t be this kind of a problem! You shouldn’t have to allow something to happen on your computer if you already told it to do so.

    Admin Rights: I’m not sure if this has happened to you but it always happens to me. I only have one account on my computer, which should be the administrator also correct? Well Vista doesn’t seem to think so. Sometimes I will try to save a file from the internet onto a program file on my hard drive and it won’t let me because I am not the “administrator”. I end up saving it to my hard drive first then moving it into the folder that I want. I really don’t understand why this has to happen. Many times it is even just trying to delete things and my own computer won’t let me.

    Compatibility problems: Many old games, software, and hardware have a really hard time being compatible with Vista. I know I tried to install some of my old computer games and they either wouldn’t be able to install or they wouldn’t be able to run near as well as what they did on XP. I would love to see Windows 7, to be a very compatible operating system. Where you will be able to run old software and those old games that you desperately needed when you had Vista.

    Error codes: I don’t want to know that the error was number XX00825. I want to know what happened and why it happened. Telling me just numbers and letters won’t help me at all, if you actually give me an explanation then I might be able to troubleshoot it and fix it completely. It gets worse when you don’t even know if that is an error or a bad virus, then your in for a really fun time.

    I can’t wait to see what the final version of Windows 7 looks like. Hopefully it will change and impress me enough to make me upgrade. If you agree or disagree with anything I was talking about feel free to leave me a comment down below.

    Operating System Hate, (Mac Side) 

    Everyone who uses a computer knows that there are two main operating systems, Mac OS X and Windows. The fight between the two has gone on for many years and will continue for a very long time. I have decided to write about the two sides and why they hate each other so much. This post will be based on the Mac side and the next will be the Windows side.

    There are many reasons why Mac (or Apple) users hate Windows users or the operating system in general. The first reason which is also probably the biggest is viruses. Everyone knows that Windows will get more viruses than a Mac will. Windows users sometimes say that the only reason this is true is because Windows has more market share. I do believe this is a good point. But I would have to say that Apple is doing a better job with the viruses than Microsoft is.

    Another reason why Mac users might hate Windows is Vista. Almost everyone in the computer industry knows that Vista was a Microsoft failure. I have a computer running Windows Vista, and I have to say that Vista is remarkably slower than XP was. Because people have been noticing this there have been a huge amount of people that have downgraded to XP. The Apple, Get a Mac ads have also displayed this Vista problem.

    The last reason why I think Mac users hate Windows is Errors. Some of you might have seen the Get a Mac ad when PC has all of the errors on the cart. Well I have used Windows and I have gotten some crazy errors in my Windows days. This is a defiantly a big reason for some people who work in businesses, because they can’t have their computers have a fatal error in the middle of a job. Even normal casual computer users just thing these errors are annoying (I know I do). Even though Windows might have worse errors, Mac OS X has some errors too, so don’t think Mac OS X is the most amazing operating system is the best.

    The Windows side should be out soon.
