Thread: I Bought Microsoft Vista

  1. #1

    Default I Bought Microsoft Vista

    I just ordered a copy of Microsoft Vista (RC1) !

    I haven't seen anyone get Vista running with KVM or kqemu, so I figured that would be interesting to see if it works.

    Some other articles could come out of this as well.

    Ultimate Version? And why RC1?

    RC1 is $5 at NewEgg. I am not going to support Microsoft more than I have to .

    Though a computer shop has already sponsored an Ultimate copy for Phoronix if we choose to accept.

    Vista = bleh...shame on you! Although I do understand you're going to need it eventually to compare benchmarks, so you're forgiven...

    Who's the Microsoft fanboi now? ;-)

    /me runs in other direction.

    All he's done is contaminate a VM or a hard disk with a particularly nasty boot-sector virus. Vista's just...heh...it's NOT what people are making it out to be. Well, unless they're panning it that is.

    I don't think the sponsors would necessarily appreciate the sentiment.

    BSOD on loading of Windows installer.... At first it complained having no APCI (when I passed the -no-apci argument), so then I enabled it and then everything got all blue.
