I bought myself a beautiful new HP Pavilion with 4GB of RAM memory and Intel Dual Core processors (my old one had an Intel Celeron processor and only 512 of RAM). Let me tell you, this computer is breathtakingly beautiful. The design is a pure delight to look at. So much so that I sit and stare at it for minutes at a time marveling at the simple beauty of it. *sigh* The problem is, that I also find myself staring for eons at a damn browser page and/or program that takes freaking forever to load!
At first I thought it was something wrong with my brand new computer. I started googling stuff like mad and through the search results realized that the problem isn’t my Black Beauty but freaking Windows Vista. THIS OPERATING SYSTEM SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *arrrggg*
I’ve spend the last two days trying to tweak and hound a brand new super powerful PC to find a way to optimize an operating system that should not be sold or installed into any computer if it doesn’t damn well work. Just writing this, my Physical Memory is up to fifty-fucking-six percent—AND WORD IS ALL I HAVE OPEN.
I cannot begin to tell you how frustrating this is. I want my XP back. *sniff*
The only thing that gives me hope is that all the articles I’ve read about optimizing Vista say that once you’ve disabled all the useless features that eat up your RAM, the program is quite good. In the mean time, I’m a WinVista slave.
Note: During my waiting-for-stuff-to-load time I’ve drawn up a chart of people raped/abused/molested/beaten in that gad-awful Robin Schone book I had the misfortune to read. I’ll type it in as soon as my computer is in working order.
