Windows Vista is almost here advice: don't do it

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Windows Vista will be hitting stores before you know it and I thought I would throw in my 2 cents about whether to upgrade.

Micro$oft will ship 5 different version of it latest operating system basically telling people that even if you don't have a ton of cash to drop you can still get the ugly Home basic version which has barely any features to speak of.

Windows Vista Home Basic: Suggested retail price for full package product, $199.00 USD. Suggested upgrade retail price, $99.95 USD.

Windows Vista Home Premium: Suggested retail price for full package product, $239.00 USD. Suggested upgrade retail price, $159.00 USD.

Windows Vista Business: Suggested retail price for full package product, $299.00 USD. Suggested upgrade retail price, $199.00 USD.

Windows Vista Ultimate: Suggested retail price for full package product, $399.00 USD. Suggested upgrade retail price, $259.00 USD.

$200 Flipping dollars for the basic version that has no features?

Many of you will be aquiring Vista when you buy a computer at Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. therefore the computer will have a Vista Tax built into the price and it won't seem that expensive, it will be part of the computer.

My advice to those with decent computers that are fast, reliable and working fine.

Don't buy Vista!!!

Windows Xp probably works fine for you and you are not missing out on anything with Vista. Better yet go and buy a Apple Mac and see exactly what kind of features you should get when you pay for an Operating system.

A Sky dive from 18 miles up

Sunday, November 12, 2006

On August 16, 1960 Joseph Kittinger jumped out of a balloon that was 102,800 feet above the earth.

He set records for highest balloon ascent, highest parachute jump, longest freefall and fastest speed by a man through the atmosphere at over 600 miles an hour.

The first 2 1/2 minutes of this music video are of him jumping, it took hime around 15 minutes to make it back to earth:
