Best part about Windows Vista  
Windows Vista's best new feature is its new games! All existing games - Solitaire, Minesweeper, Freecell, Hearts, etc. have all been revamped and look a whole lot prettier, and there are new ones as well!

The best part though is that while the old FreeCell might have taken a megabyte of RAM, the new one takes 66 MEGABYTES instead!!!

Well that right there is a great reason to upgrade!

The card cascade in Solitaire is ridiculously lame compared to the one in the original one from Windows 3.x to XP (5.1). Spider Solitaire's fireworks display however does look a lot better. Granted this was from using Beta 2 (RC1) and RC2 is supposedly out now, so they may have changed these around.

Look, they need a crazy beautification after the fugtastrophe that was XP. It was the ugliest OS "upgrade" since Mac OS 8.

Uhhh. . . wow. Talk about drain.

Then again, most people will stick with XP until they get a new computer that has Vista on it, and at that time there'll be enough memory that you don't have to worry about issues like that.

Just wishful thinking.

Exactly. And I think most of the people who will be buying it for their existing computer are people who are more likely to have gobs of RAM already.

66 isn't really that much anyways. It's just dumb that it's so much more than it was before.

SIXTY FUCKING SIX?!?!?!?!?! Are they out of their damn MINDS?! Jesus tap dancing christ! Most of my favourite games are smaller than that!
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on October 26th, 2006 02:16 am (UTC)
No no it's 66 when you open it. It sometimes grows to 90

But then again you don't have a memory shortage do you?

I do if I'm doing a million other things at once like I usually am... if I'm playing a game that came with Windows it's because I'm busy doing a few otehr things at the same time and I can't spare the RAM to load up a bigger game.
