It would seem that operating system threads continue to be on par with discussing religion and politics for many of us. I'm tired of watching what should be useful, informative threads devolve into personal arguments without any hope of resolution. This new thread has a few rules:
1) No personal attacks, this includes telling someone they're wrong without any facts to explain why.
2) This thread is about Windows Vista, not anti-trust issues or why Microsoft is evil.
3) Stay on topic. If you want to discuss why Linux, OSX, BeOS, etc. is better, start a new thread. However, there are plenty of questions surrounding the switch from XP to Vista so that's still on the table.
4) No personal attacks. I'm serious. This thread will hold every participant to a higher standard than usual. I will never lock it, but I will edit posts if they enter into personal attacks or trolling territory. If I have to edit someone's posts too much, banning is a very real possibility.
Everyone on this site shares in the responsibility for making it a respite from the troubles and stress in our daily lives rather than something that adds to them. The ONLY control you have in aiding or abetting this is what you type in the box before you hit submit. Think about what you're doing and remember that what you put out there always dictates what you get back.
