I have Vista on my pc, yes i`m the one of few, and it work really good. I never had serious problems and i will never exchange my pc for an Apple product( also cause inside i have a really huge collection of the old Fancy`s hard drive pictures XD). Guys this video is just a funny joke, don`t be so hardcore please.

I run two screens 10-20 tabs on Chrome, 3 or 4 programs, music or a movie, and a 3d game on average. I restart my PC maybe once a week if not every other. I very, very rarely see any errors or crashes. Just picked up a new PC with the 3820 i7 and an X79 chipset board and two 680GTXs. Now the only warning I get is how bored it is with my pathetic workload. Sorry to brag btw, if it came across that way, I`m very excited with it. My main point is that Windows 7, properly installed and maintained runs very, very well. Most peoples issues stem from driver conflicts (solvable ones usually by updating to the newest or by installing correctly), not knowing how to shut off features (like UAC), or because they themselves mucked something up (as I said drivers and very often corrupted registry). Add onto this very convincing web ploys that sucker in older people and kids into thinking there is something wrong with the PC etc. to install spyware, adware, and virii.

@OldOllie
your description of "working" amounts to less than 1 actually powerful program being run

oh and a hexdump tends to be in HEX not in BINARY

Not true at all. At any given point in time I have my firewire Motu interface fired up and playing music with iTunes, two LCD monitors, one with Outlook (calendar and email) and the other with a browser and Dreamweaver. Not to mention all the gadgets etc. On top of that, I also run recording software with multiple tracks and MANY effects. I haven`t seen a crash in years. The last crash I had was a blue screen on an old XP system that was related to a bad stick of ram. That was about three years ago. And, I am a heavy user. My computer is being operated and pushed to it`s limits for at least 10 hours a day.

It`s all about knowing what to install and what not to. It`s about proper computer maintenance (software and hardware). A properly tended computer will not crash.

Even if you`re flexing the new processors with 60 different apps (which any of the I series can handle easily) most of the problems on this video aren`t a problem at all, and haven`t been for a while.

Still, good laugh.

That`s a good point OldOllie.
I haven`t had any problems with Windows since my high school computer/math teacher gave me a school copy of Windows 98 to upgrade my 95 machine. It fried about a year after the release of XP.
I`ve never had a single problem with XP, except now that that machine is aging, I don`t use it, and only my mother does.

I skipped Vista.
The only problem I`ve had with 7 was the time I ran a batch file I wrote, and I didn`t increment a variable correctly resulting in an infinite loop. That has been the only time I`ve seem a blue screen with 7.

BTW, if you never have problems with Windows, you aren`t really working. In my typical working configuration, I`m running 2 sessions of my email client, a web browser (currently Chrome) with 9-10 tabs open, MS Word with at least 4 documents open, an Excel spreadsheet, Windows Explorer, Winamp with some tunes playing, and a game of Freecell, and yes, sometimes it crashes.

I used to crash my PC at work all the time because I was working on 800-page documents and doing find-and-replace operations with over 10,000 occurrences. The boss could never understand why my PC was always crashing when no one else had that problem. I tried to explain to him that I was the only one there who was actually making my machine work. I finally explained it to him like this: "Al Unser, Jr. crashes his car about 10 times a year; my granny hasn`t crashed her car once in 50 years. Who would you pick to drive for your racing team?"

I worked for a large govt. org. when we all got new Gateway 486 computers with Windows NT4 and Office 97. If you ran the "check grammar as you type" feature in Word, it would crash and give you a blue screen full of 0s and 1s (hex dump). The people who actually used their computers (like me) discovered this wonderful "undocumented feature" first, so whenever it would happen to someone else, and they asked me what happened, I would look over their shoulder and study the screen ffor about 10 sec, and then I would point to a random spot on their screen and say, "You see that zero right there? That ought to be a one." Then I would walk away.

Most of this is only true, if you don`t know how to use a computer. Then you might as well buy a mac.

BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!!!! ....literally
@smaus windows and mac are at about the same level on usability (after all they copy each other), the main difference is that windows is for gamers and mac for douches (i`m talking about the basic user here)

lol. Windows can be frustrating, but I`m waaaaay more frustrated on Macs. Google (Android) is least frustrating of all.
