It was nearly a decade after buying my first computer, a 1999 Compaq, and I was tired of the constant lagging, the inexplicable slowness and the overall evil that was AOL. It was a momentous day in my life, for I was going to take the plunge and finally buy a new computer. With several paychecks meticulously saved, I went into Best Buy wanting nothing but the absolute best in home computer quality.
I combed through the aisles of the PC's, slowly looking through every product available. At the time, a MAC was foreign too me and frankly, harder to use than a do-it-yourself lobotomy. I finally settled on a sharp looking Dell that looked seductive and sultry, the computer basically begged me to take it home. I pulled out my credit card, drove as quick as I could home and immediately set that sucker up.
I ripped through the packaging and finally started to plug it in and operate it. I soon realized something very different; this was no longer the computer I knew, this was, Vista? I had upgraded through the years on the old 99 Compaq, eventually settling on Windows XP in about 2002. When the moment finally arrived for me to feast on the computer and cruise the internet, I could not. Windows Vista is like taking something so incredibly good, so exquisite, so irreplaceable and then taking a baseball bat and smashing it to pieces.
Windows developed the perfect system with Windows XP. Everyone, their mother's and the neighbor down the street had a personal computer along with Windows XP and a copy of Pinball up for days upon days, which turned into years upon years. Microsoft perfected the optimal computer operating program. Now, they have taken their master prototype and destroyed it to beyond belief. Only a shred of the old Microsoft, system and/or operation can be seen in the current form --not to mention a total lack of integrity or innovation.
The old saying goes something like "don't fix what ain't broke," a piece of advice that the geniuses behind Windows Vista should have thought of before unveiling this piece of garbage to the public. They took a masterpiece and made it look like amateur hour. The unnecessary and needless little tweeks are incredibly useless and by computer user standards, laughable. Some days, I just turn on my computer and let Vista load up. All I can do is just sit by my computer screen and look and ponder at how such a technological atrocity could have occurred.
Windows Vista is the equivalent of computer genocide and there is no reason as to why this should have ever happened. Although the metaphor isn't exactly the same, it follows the same logic. Windows Vista made a terrible mistake when it unveiled this process to the world and it's obviously evident in program sales. Amen, Microsoft Windows Vista.
But now there is a new comer in town and its name is Windows 7 and it promises to bring back the old reliable features found in Windows XP. The new operating system promises to be faster, more reliable, and make it easier do the things you love to do on the computer. Let us hope they got it right this time.
