Vista shutdown fail
« on: April 18, 2011, 12:29:24 am »
This just happened. Really.
First, some background: the family laptop runs Windows Vista. It came preinstalled. Nothing we can do. As we all know, Vista is a lesson unto itself on inefficient code. Even with the laptop's 2GHz processor, it takes 20 minutes to boot, and another 20 to login. Shutdown isn't as bad; it usually takes 5-10 minutes.
Tonight was not usually.
Tonight, the laptop took so long to shut down it actually triggered the screensaver. I stopped the screensaver to reveal--the login screen!

Oh dear Microsoft must of hired TI to code Vista. There's probably a hidden z80 somewhere in your laptop and that must be what Vista is running on. It wold also explain the bloated and unoptimized code :P

List of stuff I need to do before September:
1. Finish the Emulator of the Casio Prizm (in active development)
2. Finish the the SH3 asm IDE/assembler/linker program (in active development)
3. Create a partial Java virtual machine  for the Prizm (not started)
4. Create Axe for the Prizm with an Axe legacy mode (in planning phase)
5. Develop a large set of C and asm libraries for the Prizm (some progress)
6. Create an emulator of the 83+ for the Prizm (not started)
7. Create a well polished game that showcases the ability of the Casio Prizm (not started)

You call that a shutdown fail? My Vista laptop BSoD'd (Blue Screen of Death, for those unacquainted with its loveliness) when it was shutting down. Plus, the blue screen itself was garbled and illegible. :P

The BSoD is even better if you extreme overclock. Once I pushed my cpu above 4.0 Ghz with high voltage and everything. Once the cpu reached 80 C I saw a random colorful rainbow and then everything shut down. At first the computer would not respond to me turning it on so I had to reset the cmos pin before the computer would work again.

Mine failed only at shutting down. Yours failed at working.
The (main) reason Vista sucks so bad is that it's actually an accidentally leaked, unfinished build of what is now Windows 7 that generated so much clamor Microsoft had to release it as its own OS.

Now,
before anyone tries
to start any-
thing,
I'd like to remind
you all
of one
very important fact:

All software sucks.
All hardware sucks.

And 'tis true what you have heard:
Some suck harder than others;
My vacuum sucks hardest of all.
