Windows XP is getting obsolete!
After more than 2 years hearing about its rumours, the monster has arrived! Windows Vista is here!
For those of you that are not really into technology, Vista is the latest version of the Windows operating system series by Microsoft, and an operating system’s basically the thing that controls and organizes your programs and files in your computer.
In the future, Windows Vista will most likely take over the Windows XP that you’re using now. With spectacularly enhanced graphics and various improved features, well, why not?
My friend and I purposely went to Low Yat Plaza today for this event! I’m not that much of a tech geek, but I know that Vista is really something gigantic.
Here’s the main exhibition area:
Once you step into the area, you will see huge LCD screens showing-off their latest interface and graphic abilities, leaving not even one pixel out of your sight for your own inspection.
Two great graphical features that I really like are the AERO interface and Flip 3D mode.
With the AERO interface, objects on your desktop become translucent, so you can see clearly what’s on your desktop at a glance even if it’s littered with dozens of opened folders and applications.
The Flip 3D mode can sort of organize your desktop objects in a superrealistic 3D line as you choose which to work on. I’m sure this will require no less performance from any video card since it is simply so-so-so cool!
You can even experience all those on the spot with these demo PCs:
Damn, even transferring files can win you prizes here! You can win up to RM1000 worth of prizes by signing up to this contest to test Windows Vista’s speed of file transfer using a thumbdrive! The guys at Microsoft are really confident at their product…
And OMG! There was an O2Jam competition!!! It started yesterday, and the finals is today!
Well, since O2Jam is a program by itself, I wonder if there would be any difference playing O2Jam on Windows Vista, I mean, would it be nicer or faster or something?
Although I really wanted to, but we didn’t have time to hang back and watch the competitions since we had to go to Sungei Wang to buy some stuff, then rush back to Cyberjaya before 6PM for an appointment. What a waste…
But anyway, we each got a free copy of HardwareMag and a bottle of Windows Vista mineral water before we left, at least! Wakakaka!
Man, really wanna change to Windows Vista soon, but aiks, better let them check out the bugs and security loopholes first, who knows, it might be like Windows XP all over again… =)View More
