Microsoft ripped me off with Vista. Microsoft were behind ! they promised a whole new system completely written from scratch after XP, they called it "longhorn" then we never heard anything for years. What was going on was that they had been incapable of actually doing something from scratch and were soon getting up to their old tricks taking existing shit software and hacking it about to make something else that we were expected to pay money for. I just grabbed Windows server 2003 and dumped a new user interface onto it ensures it had 64-bit support, and then called it a totally new OS but that was the birth of the fraud known as Windows Vista. When my PC broke after a few years I decided it was time to upgrade to a decent dual core processor a yes 64-bit was here it had been around for a while so I built a new PC. I ran XP on it but it was such a shame that I was limited to 3.25 GB of RAM and could not use the full 4 GB geeks to say have the ability to upgrade to 8. So I got a hacked copy of Vista of the net and it worked fine. So when they finally caught up with it and blocked it I felt I had had a fair trial period and was ready to put money into this thing. How wrong I was, though sooner has I installed the bought version of Vista I had problems left right and centre I had been scammed. so I got a cracked copy of windows seven when it came out, oh boy what a difference. Some of the fanciness of Vista has been removed like the flying Windows thing. But the system performs much better it had performance it was not sluggish and shitty. But then they caught up with that to so I had to go back to Vista. I thought okay give it another chance, they have had plenty of time to do updates now after all that is all Windows 7 is so hopefully those who wasted money all on Vista will be given some justice. Nope still the same old shit. I refuse to pay for windows seven, I have already bought my license I am still waiting for the product! I am back on a cracked version of seven because I just cannot take Vista and it shit. Again it has caught up with me so I am using it whilst it tells me that I do not have a genuine software well I'll tell you one thing it's a damn sight more genuine than that shit known as Vista ! I am still waiting for my free upgrade, obviously Microsoft is too big to take to trading standards but that is where they belong! How come they ask for money for seven when it is basically Vista all over again but working this time. Why should I have to pay money for Microsoft to test out their products on the they are a bunch of thieving bastards.

It's the chip manufactures who broke backwards compatibility with 16-bit code by not allowing it to be executed whilst in 64-bit mode.

Why should they? They, unlike the people still using code from the 80s, are trying to move forwards.

the problems arise when microsoft have accommodated non standard stuff in the past instead of remaining firm on hardware standards.
