As I’ve already said a million times, I recently installed Windows Vista Ultimate Edition on my laptop. Some people wanted to see a screenshot so I took one and will put it up in this post. You’ll have to wait though, because there’s a more urgent thing I need to talk about.
I’ve been using Hathway Broadband for the past one year or so. It connects to the internet via Elitecore’s 24Online Client. Now,the day I installed Windows Vista, I asked my internet guy to come and set up the Local Area Connection on Vista. Though it already works for me on Windows XP Professional Edition, I still wanted to see the real power of Vista. Unfortunately though, God a.k.a. Bill Gates had other plans. After I downloaded the client from the internet provider’s FTP, it give me a really ugly message box which said “The client doesn’t support this Operating System”. I called customer care and they said to me, “Use the internet on Windows XP, how does it matter?”. I didn’t have any replies to that and shrugged away. After that I did some extensive searching so I could find a Vista ready version of the client. That, however is not available because Elitecore hasn’t made it yet. The problem is that the client makes certain minor edits in the Windows registry and WinVista being overprotective, doesn’t allow that and hence the client doesn’t work. I told all of this to my ISP and now he says that they’ll try to do some code editing to make the client work. I hardly believe that’s gonna happen though. If anyone reading this, by chance has any solution to this problem, please help me out and I’ll be grateful to you all my life.
Anyhow, here’s the Windows Vista screenshot. It currently has a Jessica Alba wallpaper and is in 800×600 resolution.I use 1024×768 now but it should give you a good idea. There aren’t many fancy icons up there because I haven’t installed anything yet and that because I need the internet 24×7 and because it isn’t available, Vista is currently just a useless piece of meat.
