I’m devistafied

That’s right, after battling against the Vista demon for a couple of months, I slay the dragon by writing right over the top of it with a dual-boot XP/Ubuntu configuration. Vista went down howling, screaming and blowing fire from its nostrils. I emerged triumphant and the townspeople were grateful. Once again their software worked, their machines stable, more than 5% of their CPU power available, and their power management once again functional. Rest in peace evil dragon. May you never again terrorize the Earth with your fancy interface and DRM.

  1. Congratulations ! Do Microsoft have a refund policy , or customer satisfaction one? Could you get a refund ? I will be interested in a few months to see your usage stats of XP vs Ubuntu.

  2. I doubt *very* much that Microsoft has a refund policy, especially after I’ve been using the program for a couple of months. However, I will try and sell it on eBay. I suspect that my usage stats will be predominantly XP. The reason being that I have lots of Windows only software. However, in time this will gradually change.

  3. Oh Peter, very amusing however, i seem to remember, back in the mists of time that were high school, you were a avid mac user. Have you been enslaved by the beast for work/study purposes or are you just a bit masochistic?

  4. Hi Boz,

    Good to hear from you. Yes, it appears that I deviated from the true path away from Mac’s, where my heart truly lies. At the time it was just a matter of cost. Apple laptops cost somewhat more than PCs. However, I can guarantee you that my next computer purchase will be a Mac, and my soul will be cleansed.
