Dunno if it was posted here before, but I saw it on some other forum.

To be fair, if you use an imaging program and have a couple of fast harddrives, it should be possible to (re)install Vista in <2min Smile

funny.

at first i thought there is a new imaging software that could perform that in less than 2 minutes, or just some secret hack.

funny still Smile

An average speed of modern HDDs is much then 133 MB/sec, even vista's size is about 10 GB (it is for example, i don't know its real size) and speed is 133 MB/sec, it will take rather more, than one minute to ditectly copy a partition from other HDD. So, it will not take much time doing this every boot Smile
May be, it is worthy to write a boot sector, which will automatically copy system from reserved partition to the work one Wink

Vov4ik wrote an intelligent response, unfortunately, he/she may not have been able to access the youtube link included in Tomasz' initial message, and it is rather difficult to discern from subsequent comments, that Tomasz was here offering a joke. The "installation" represents a compaction of the cdrom containing vista. The disk is reduced to fragments and shreds of plastic. The main concept of Tomasz' post is to offer part deux of the infamous thread about switching from vista to xp:

Why, now?

There's several bad things about Vista, but also some good - the enhanced prefetcher, for instance, is very nice. Once the child diseases are ironed out (might take until SP2), and equipped with vlite, it might not be all that bad.

please, download the ubuntu 7.10 iso install it, and forget vista forver, or upgrade to xp or 98

vista, it's the product to ban forever.
promoting MS vista is like promoting the commercial geared mechanism.

the modern times problem...
just compare the linux perfs and vista perfs, vista is far behind...

don't let MS be the king of the mountain.
we all need equality.

about intel, it's different as it is the hardware builder, and to obtain a relative good continuation, we need to have a single conceptor of this hardware... with some concurrents that helps to find better solutions..

the best, is to make X86 a free and open platform, this instruction set is good, complete, and expendable...

to speak again about MS, the fact is, MS is bad... they keep in people mind that a computer need WINDOWEUZEU, and it's not true...

intel broad cast his all instructions set, and a papoo can obtain the IA32 software developer manual with ease...
but a programmer in paris cannot obtain any info about NTFS direct programming...
time is to share

I take it you haven't actually used Vista?

I'm not a big fan of it, but you're being plain childish, and using silly politics instead of technical arguments. And don't give me that "linux performance" bullshit, I've used linux and BSD since redhat 5.1, slackware-whatever, freebsd 4.0, etc etc... and it's still not there yet, neither feature-wise nor userfriendlyness wise.

(My oh my, did I just defend Vista? Who would have ever thought...)

do you think they use technical arguments?
i think they don't...
i try to beat them with their weapons...
and it's not silly politics, i've tested vista during 4 days...
what can vista do that ubuntu, xp, 98 cannot? not a lot of things.
what can ubuntu, wp, 98 make that vista cannot? a lot of things...
and there i speak about programming capabilities.

if you speak about aero style, or "children protection?", ok, vista is good.
but linux beat fista a lot...
can vista support the beryl desktop? no
can vista manage a lot of file systems? no
can vista execute msdos code? no
can vista start in less than one minute?NO
so it's endless and useless, exept if you love MS re-windows, and want to give them some money.

>can vista manage a lot of file systems? no
YES, but Microsoft provides drivers only for FAT, NTFS, CDFS, SMB (well, not sure if the last one is driver based).

>can vista execute msdos code? no
Neither Linux, it needs DOSBox or something (like Vista).

>can vista start in less than one minute?NO
Actually Win98 seems to be the only one that can be ready to use that fast but can hog for a long while if it is trying to get an IP over a net where there is no DCHP server available.

>can vista support the beryl desktop? no
But since Vista has its own native 3D desktop why do you need it? and XP and 98 can't run it neither and there is no native 3d desktop neither.

exact, all is exact, exect that the hibernate wake up of xp is faster than 98 startup. and 98 is less than 20 seconds to start and stop on my machine.

about the 3D of vista, look and compare
wich seems to be the best? please don't lie

tom tobias, i had seen that video Wink I just proposed a method to make vista a little more reliable Smile And i am a man, not a woman)
I saw a working vista yesterday Smile With all 3D interface turned off, simple window, such as file deleteing confirmation, was displayed in about one second! At first a grey rectangle was displayed, than a header, than, after some delay, buttons... And notebook is quite new, vista was preinstalled on it.
I had remembered a sentence from a course of information science, which says, that an operating system should use as less system resources, as possible...
