    Why are you surprised? It's all Intel hardware isn't it? Only an
    extra security chip on the Mac.

    Did you look at the picture? Even if they are Vista Capable, I can´t
    see them using that particular image.

    Pity it was a 9x BSOD though.

    BS. I've never had one BSOD on Vista and I've been using it since beta.
    Ubuntu crashed on me just from playing an OGG radio station yesterday
    though requiring a hard reset.

    I've never had a single Linux application crash that required a reboot,
    short of when I've had a video driver issue locking X.

    I've also never used Vista, nor am I likely to anytime soon, hence the
    smiley... ;-)

    I run and quite like Vista. However, I have received a BSOD. It was
    related to installing an application that uses MS's SQL - FYI, Sony
    Vegas and specifically the media manager section. You obviously
    don't have much software installed.

    I've also seen others have BSOD's due to hardware and other pieces of
    software. Don't be such a blind, blinkered fcukwit.

    As it's an OT thread....

    What version of SQL Server? I know Vista tells you that SQL2000 is
    incompatible but one their site (FAQ) I can find no technical reason
    for this, only commercial reasons. I know the point will be mooted
    soon, I really must get into SQL2005 as 2008's only just around the
    corner.

    You know, I don't think its so strange or blinkered. As I said, I used
    NT/XP for years with no BSOD (maybe one or two in years). Maybe my HW
    was better matched, I don't know. But for some reason people in Linux
    groups seems to think that Windows users are plagued by these things on
    a daily basis. They aren't. Really. Yes, there are issues. There are
    issues with Linux too. I prefer Linux, but Windows is not the devil
    incarnate you know.

    SQL2000. Although it is possibly Sony Media Manager rather than SQL
    that causes the BSOD.

    I've already got SQL2005 installed, but haven't had the call to use it
    yet. MySQL does the job for me. It's not the worlds most popular for
    nothing.

    Hmmmm. This is a rather bizarre comment.

    Me too. But when you do get the BSOD you are royally snookered.

    Not me dude. I run it. I know.

    I didn't say it was. See up there, I said I quite like Vista and run
    it. I'm not going to live in the dark though. I'll leave that for
    others.

    I like SQL Server, it's one thing I can rely on. I consider it to be
    Microsoft's crowning glory. Apart from a few niggles in Enterprise
    Mangler I can't really find fault with it (pointless loops on dual
    CPUs aside, I've not found that to be an issue).

    I'm looking forward to getting my teeth into 2005, try/catch error
    handling? or put another way: error handling at all? Can't wait :-)

    Yes, I did read that. I was referring to "people in general". Not you. I
    was agreeing with you.

    Good luck with that mate. I'm not a heavy user anyway, so MySQL is fine

    Ah, so people actually running XP and getting BSODs on a regular base don't
    count, as long as they are linux users, right, "true linux
    advocate", "kernel hacker", "emacs user", "swapfile expert", "X
    specialist", "CUPS guru", "USB-disk server admin", "newsreader magician"
    and "hardware maven" Hadron Quark, aka Hans Schneider, aka Damian O'Leary

    Note: I run XP. I develop software for windows on it.
    And there is rarely a day where I don't get the BSOD (I have disabled the
    automatic reboot which by default happen in XP instead of the BSOD), or I
    am forced to reboot because the machine becomes unsuable.

    Why do you think I call windows a pile of garbage? The reason is that I have
    issues with it. Often. *Much* too often. And *way* more often than with
    linux
