ROTLMAO Ok That nearly made me spit pepsi all over my screen... sad but true I tried Ultimate vista x64 for 4 weeks on my home machine it was stable never crashed however the UAC and driver issues "certification" was a nightmare example Creative labs gives away the 32 bit drivers, but sells the 64 bit drivers cause not enough people use x64 for them to pay thier programmers to write 64 bit drivers to make it cost effective so while they have them and its such a limited market base they pay the cost onto the consumer. That and thier decsion to "outdate" certain pieces of hardware i mean come on the old 15pin joystick port they don't include drivers for "legacy" devices, i have a 250mb parrallel port zip drive i used to use to store private offline personal items but did vista support it or will, nope. even have a MS branded finger print reader does vista x64 support it, nope. x86(32bit) does. I'm treating vista like I did ME when it came out I tried ME for a week and quickly went back to 98se. Vista like ME just another pothole in the road to be avoided. But thanks for the video that was hilarious and sums up how I and many others feel towards it. System scored well even though I built it around early 2004.

Yeah I'm thinking of redoing my system, dual boot xpsp2 and linux although I know I can repartition my 320gig drive and dual boot, I've got umbuntu x64 installed on an old 20gig drive for tinkering i may just wait and build an new system for linux/unbuntu standalone.

An honorable mention goes out to the Windows Defender "DCS" filtering system (modeled after the old, charcoal-filter cigarette technology) :)
