  • Software will achieve everything

    Classic corporate monkey shaking. Really very impressive.

    But what this guy fails to mention (at least in this clip) is what happens to the millions of XP machines out there that can't run Vista?

    Answer = landfill.

  • Making Windows Vista greener.

    Basic requirements for VISTA are higher than XP, MAC, & Linux. More ram, more video ram, faster processor's, larger power supply and, probably, a bigger hard drive. It looks like the title is a contradiction in terms. From reading user's feedback on VISTA, it is bloated, runs slow, after 6 months usage slows down even more, and still has security problems. How do you make this greener?
