As I’ve posted quite frequently, Windows Vista is worse than Windows 98, just with better graphics. Steve Bass at PC World pointed out this amusing video in his latest column, and I found it so funny I just had to share it.
Yes, I know I’m using a player you’ve never seen before (blip.tv), but the version I found on YouTube had a bunch of annoying stuff at the beginning, totally unrelated to the original video. So, there you have it: Windows Vista has “more holes than a sponge” and will sink your computer (and your morale) like cement. 🙂
Here’s the original source if you want it, and a bit of advice should you choose to post a blip.tv video on your own site: Use the MySpace embed. It’s more easily sized. Using the “Most blogs and websites” option would have made the video overlap under the sidebar here, but I could halve the size of the MySpace player because it’s just a Flash movie.
Update (2008-04-04): i can has wurrking embed nao… The current embed code seems to negate my advice above; there appears to be only one option, which is easily resized using the width and height parameters in both the <object> and <embed> tags.
Update (2008-04-08): D’oh! I should link to my more in-depth writings on the Vista issue, just published this month… Here we are, “Windows Vista: Problems and Advice for Microsoft“.
