Default Re: O/T computer help desk thread

yeah I'm a huge FireFox fan. It launches slowly for me but I usually have 25 or more tabs open and it is not unusual for it to be using 6 to 700 MB of RAM.

VISTA is a friggin pig. Turn off all those gadgets like p1zl3 sez and personally I've turned off pretty much every visual aid that it has. Once I was finished killing eye candy and bullshit it looks like Win2K (or for non techy's, it looks like the old Windows 98). It is much much faster now although I still can not see a single significant feature that would make anyone upgrade.

Don't argue with idiots, people watching may not be able to tell the difference.
