The battle was long and hard, but in the end, I emerge victorious – Banjo is running a stable XP with sound and ethernet. They said it couldn’t be done. They said I was a mad man; said I was playing god. They said Vista was my destiny, and that I should really put on some pants – but who’s laughing now? WHO’S LAUGHING NOW?!??

That’d be me. I’M laughing now. NO MORE VISTA! ALL HAIL XP!

I will take my leave now to do a naked victory lap around the living room, but before I go let me leave you with this:

  • Yes, multiple comments will result in multiple cans of food being donated
  • An attention whore? Really? I just think bukkake is fucking hilarious, is all
  • Sorry Ro – you can’t choose your can, but I will try to pick something awesome in your name :)
  • Keep those comments coming, people!

  1. I found your site in google when I was looking up blogs. I realy like what you have done and just wanted to leave a comment saying so. Cheers

  2. My work laptop has a Vista sticker on it, but the tech people put XP on instead because they’re scared of Vista, the latest version of Internet Explorer (7?) and the latest version of Firefox. And for this we pay them 100% overhead.

  3. Look at all you Vista haters! I’ll have you know that Microsoft worked hard to… snicker Ahem… they worked hard to make an Operating System for you that was secure and free of bugs cough… okay, I can’t keep it up with a straight face. I still wonder how it turned from what it was supposed to be to what it became.

    Oh, and put on some pants…. if I hafta wear ’em, so do you!

  4. Did Kimli really just say “long and hard” and have no inappropriate comments from either herself or friends?

    Maybe I missed a memo… so I’ll follow the crowd like the lemming I am and just say that, other than personal preferences with interface stuff and the ability to address more physical memory, nothing is pulling me toward Vista any time soon. So another +1 for your operation!

  5. I am in awe of your Vista-beating. I tried to get a laptop without Vista two weeks before it came out and it was impossible, so I gave up with a whimper and now use Vista. Over a year later it still confuses me.

  6. You have inspired me to finally take Vista on, by taking it off. I was afraid before, but not anymore. I’m done with being bullied by it’s overwhelming number of processes and general slowness of boot.
