While I might not be one of the first to run out and purchase Vista once it hits the shelves, I would still like to say that I think you need to do some more research before making such a pointless website about something you clearly know nothing about.

Take your conspiracy theories elsewhere.

Thanks.

First I would like to say that I'm not negative to your initiative. If this is your belief then I support your expressing it.

One thing you need to do if you want to add credibility to your satements is add some sort of source or reference so that we know you're not just making it up. Either that or remove anything that can't be backed by facts.

This one for example

You really need to explain this one more thoroughly and add a reference to where you got the facts and figures from, especially since you have exact numbers (50 millions).

Good luck.

Most of the things have been on microsoft technet and on microsoft site. We are not just making this up to get money or something like that we just hope we wont loose linux etc. and all open source programs :). Well atleast I am thinking that way this may look unbelievable, but we arent making all up. Some maybe only rumors heard some of them from people, but mostly of them have seen on technet etc. And the 50 million is rought guess.. And it said it before but my friend from england translated it to better english, because I am not so good in it like you can see :)

There are some legit. concerns about Windows Vista - I suggest researching them and explaining them on your website instead of some of the junk thats there now.

Also, cite sources; if things have been on technet/microsoft sites/wherever then provide links. Your site isn't credible if you don't back up your claims.

Don't mention piracy at all, it makes it sound like you're a bunch of software pirates who just aren't admitting it. The fact that piracy will be more difficult with Vista is a good thing, it doesn't belong on your list.

Sounds like a load of $h!t to me. If you have reliable sources then cite them.

Things you've heard from people are not reliable information, and publishing them on your website (represented as facts no less!) makes the credibility of your entire site (and by extension your cause) questionable to say the least.

7. Regedit will be simplified.


Why is this a bad thing? You havn't actually said that any functionality will be removed. If it were simpler and had the same functionality it would be an improvment. Don't complain about things being simplified, complain about features being removed (if you have a source stating they will be).


All up, if you're trying to get support for your cause, you're doing a horrible job of it. You need to only provide things you have proper sources for, and you need to cite those sources so that people can check them out.

On the other hand, if Toxic Hippo is correct, then you're doing a good job of making a ridiculous anti-MS website that noone will take seriously, but which isn't particularly funny.
