    Re: XP Computer for sale: Cheap!

    Multiple red 'X's' are the first indication that a computer is degenerating, and heading down the path toward what is depicted in the first post of this thread.



    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    I can see the comic.
    Although on my work computer all I see is red x's.
    Especially on the cheer up Viking Fans thread. :'(

    Heck, I don't even see the red X -- There's absolutely nothing there.

    Your attempts at posting pics today, just aren't working. That's the 2nd or 3rd red "X" you posted today.
    How come I can see it?
    I don't know? What does everyone else see?
    Now I see the red x, something is screwed up.

    I want to get a new computer however if I get one now it makes sense to get Vista.
    My problem is I will use it for work and I'm worried I'll have problems since they are not using Vista yet.
    Does anyone know if that is a problem?

    I know alot of companies haven't released drivers that support Vista yet. I bought a new laptop last month and had XP installed instead of Vista. The programs I use in my company for Design, Quickbooks,My electric time clock and many antivirus programs are still not capable of functioning on Vista yet without issues.

    Think of it this way, it took until Service pack 2 until most of the problems with XP were solved and it was a stable OS. You can pretty much count on Vista gloing through the same process until everybody gets their crap together. Then Microsoft will put out a new OS before it is ready.

    Thanks for the input.
    I guess this is one of those situations where you darned if you do and darned if you don't.
    Maybe I can find one of those deals where if you buy XP now they will allow me to get Vista later.

    You will probably have to special order your computer if you want XP on it by now. I am pretty sure most places are already switched over to Vista. I know when I bought mine in Feb, the computer store had to search a bit to get one loaded with XP and everything else I wanted.

    I'd highly suggest staying away from Vista until the first Service Pack comes out.
    Vista is a graphic card whore, if you turn down the graphics it's just XP with some different tools.
