Spell checkers are based on the MXit and SMS texting language... No need to be able to spell correctly, as long as the message gets across. Jeez, they don't even teach spelling as a subject in schools anymore!Don't know if I can trust a person that can't even use the spell checker. What didn't they include it?!
Its funny how all the linux supporters come out of the woodwork when there's a thread relating to Windows. Yet despite the numerous updates for Linux etc... I've yet to see a windows user jump on every thread talking down linux etc... Seems like some people have an axe to grind.
Thing is, yes maybe Microsoft windows is the worst thing on this planet, but as linux fans it looks sad when the only way to prove your superiority is by running down the worst OS on the planet. If Linux's claim to fame is that it's better than the worst there is well its a bit like getting excited cause you beat the one legged kid in a dance marathon :/
It's also puzzling that Linux die hard users can for certain say or elude that distro X of Linux is better than an OS that isn't even released yet... (windows7).
One day I'd like to read a thread about windows where the Linux Brigade doesn't feel the need to tell people how much better their chosen OS is. I'd also like to one day know if its possible to sell linux on its own merits and not on MS window's short comings compared to it.
Coming from a Windows and Linux user.
This propaganda and OS bashing makes me sick! Use what ever OS you want to, at the end of the day no one really cares if you using Windows or *Nix!
i agree though that linux okes make linux look really poor by trolling windows threads the whole time. It's rather sad to be honest.

4. A shill is one who posts messages as a spokesperson or "front" for an unseen group or organization, usually at odds to the topics being discussed.
The shills have joined trolls as parasitical newsgroup fauna, destroying the balance of free discussion, degrading the level of information, feeding like preditors on newsgroup populations that contain the resource that they seek to convert to money.
Remember, shills are creatures of darkness, and their enemy is the light. Shills can only succeed as far as they fool people, a shill is by definition an agent of deception, similar to a con artist, but acting on a target market instead of individuals. Shills always act on profit, and the motive, opportunity, and promise of profit, which in direct proportion to the degree of such, will spawn shills as surely as rotten meat spawns magots.
Awareness of shills is a first defense against shills. Shills unmasked are no longer shills, no longer effective.
And Vista is just Win2K3 with a desktop superstructure, which is Server2K, which is NT4.0... sortof, kinda.have a look at this . seems like window's 7 is just Vista that feels faster : http://gizmodo.com/5082267/windows-7-benchmarked-actually-faster-than-vista-or-just-feels-like-it
I'm running Vista x64 with 4GB on fairly decent hardware, and it's rock solid, blindingly fast, and an absolute delight to use. There are plentsch users who will report the same.
Oh please... don't start blaming the linux users for derailing the thread, killadoob started it followed by some other Windows fanbois, my first comment in this thread was only about Windows 7, we never brought Linux in to it you guys did.
I'm just wondering what you need that much RAM for?
Perhaps you really need that horsepower. However most users, this includes most business users only need reasonably light functionality - in fact they only need functionality we've had since 1998. ...
