Do you like Vista? Not? You have got accustomed to XP. You worked in Vista for a long time and can't work in new environment. Just try to work without a cavil. Vista works well. I work with Vista and do not have problems. You have to find new program if your peace of software doesn't work in Vista. If program doesn't work in Vista, it is bad software. You have to change it to a more secure program.
I like Vista. It gives me more secure environment. Are you accustomed to work as system administrator in Windows XP? You have to change your habit. It is not secure to be a god in your system. Any virus or hacker will be able to crash or destroy your system.
Do we have to have a right to get money for software that we don't want? I mean software that we get with a new computer. I think NO. You choose not hardware only, when you buy a new computer, you choose software too. When you choose computer with Windows Vista you have to be ready to pay for the computer and the Windows Vista. Search for another computer if don't want to pay for this! If you don't want to use Windows Vista, you have to return Windows Vista and computer too.
I have been using Windows Vista for one month. First week I got accustomed to Vista very difficult. It is pretty nice for me. Vista has a beautiful interface, nice visual effects and easy to use interface but it is a different OS from XP. It's very different. Now I have a month experience to use Vista. I got accustomed to difference and now I work much better and more productive.
Are you a PC? Now you can buy I'm a PC style things if you proud of your being PC. Look at these things on the www.zazzle.com WEB site. I'll never were such thins because they look bad. I don't like any slogan on my clothes.
In my opinion - we have to proud our favorite OS. Don't feel shy, if you use PC. I'm use PC and Windows XP/Vista and I proud of that. But I hate I'm a PC style clothes. I would use a I'm a PC style cup or mouse pad but not the clothes.
Sometime in 1999, I bought me a new computer with a preinstalled OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) version of Windows 98. When I started tweaking the operating system to suit my needs and opened the system properties window (Start/Control Panel/System), I saw the logo of the company from which I bought the computer on the General tab.
For the sake of experimentation, I installed the operating system on an old computer, which barely booted under it, but showed the same logo. Could it be that the computer manufacturer recompiled Windows source codes or redesigned the installation program? There were no signs of this, so the obvious answer was "no".
Everything became clear after I read the computer technical manual. As it turns out, Microsoft does not support OEM products, instead leaving this task to the computer manufacturers themselves. So that the user knows who the manufacturer is, the latter's logo, along with other information, is placed in the system properties window.
From its inception the Windows operating system was graphics based. At first it was just a graphics shell built on top of MS-DOS, but this shell eventually became a full-fledged operating system. To simplify and standardize the appearance of programs, Microsoft provided windows with several controls that made creating a user interface easier. This interface remained with us with practically no changes since the 1990s.
The controls turned out to be handy for everyone, including programmers. Now, all you had to do was write in your program that a button was needed in a certain place and the button appeared exactly there; it looked right and functioned according to the specified parameters. But writing code to describe how the button functioned was no longer necessary: Windows took care of this.
This is not, however, the main reason why most programs have similar interfaces and the same type of controls. For a program to be able to carry the "Designed for Windows" logo, it must comply with certain rules, including that its controls should not stand out too much, but should be standard Windows built-in controls. Moreover, the visual VC++, which is one of the most widely used development tools, supports only standard controls. Other controls only can be added as ActiveX elements or coded in. They can not be added using the available visual designer methods.
The first question is: Where can you find a ready-made set of themes. My advice is to add the address http://www.themexp.org to your browser favorites or, better yet, carve it into your monitor. This site will provide you not only with themes, but also wallpapers, system shells, and many other things that will be interesting and useful in your everyday life.
Most add-ons downloaded from the Internet require that you have TGTsoft's styleXP program, which can be downloaded from the following address: http://www.tgtsoft.com. This program will allow you to work with various themes, but the pleasure will cost you $19.95.
During your visit to on this site, I recommend that you download the styleBuilder program, which you will use later to edit themes. For the present, we will content ourselves with installing ready XP themes and performing various adjustments.
Every time you transfer some data via a network, it somehow flows from your computer to the server or another computer. How does this happen? Yes, you're right: A special network protocol is used. However, there are a lot of network protocols. Which one is used in a particular situation? What is the point in using them? How do they work? These are the questions I'm going to answer now.
Before we start discussing protocols, you should learn what is the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model developed by International Organization for Standardization (ISO). According to this model, network interconnection is divided into seven layers:
After Windows is installed, it starts accumulating various trash, the amount of which is directly proportional to the time that has elapsed since the installation. So, as the time goes by, system performance gradually decreases. One reason for slower performance is file fragmentation. If you have, for example, an 500 GB hard disk in one logical drive, then the operating system, application software, and data files will all be located on one disk. The system can write any file to any location within the 500 GB, resulting in severe fragmentation.
What files are accessed most often? These are, of course, the system files. Therefore, you have to take care to keep them from being scattered all over the disk. This can be achieved by regularly defragmenting the disk. This, however, places a great strain on the hard disk platters and reading heads, as well as overheating them, which may one day prove fatally.
