Why does Windows Vista 64-Bit give so many problems?

Well the answer to that question is simple. No its not the operating system, it's not Microsoft, it all comes down to how well informed the users are when they install it. Unlike 32-bit (x86), 64-bit (x64) does not support 16-bit coding. What does that mean, well it means that any program, or driver for a device that use 16-bit coding, and any app's that use 16-bit coding are not supported in Windows Vista x64, or in Windows XP Professional 64-bit Edition. 16-bit is dead in this version, and so is anything that uses 16-bit.

This is a common problem, I have software dating back to Windows 3.1 and DOS. I installed these pieces of software on Windows 95, 98, ME, and XP, but I decided to upgrade my software when Windows Vista was announced. This is because even I knew that as the OS grows more mature, the software from the past must be replaced. To simply say that Windows 64-bit is broken, is an ignorant statement.

Well what about OS X? It works perfectly as a 64-bit system, that proves that Windows Vista sucks.

Actually no it doesn't, see unlike Microsoft, Apple builds there hardware right there in the factory. You simply can't compare Microsoft and Apple, because Apple is more of an HP, Dell, and Gateway type company. While Microsoft is a Software company. So of course OS X runs smoothly as a 64-bit platform, everything works better when you know exactly what to put in your system. Microsoft just makes the software, its up to the other companies to make the hardware compatible.

So what have we learned today? That we need to be a little more courteous to Microsoft, and stop bashing Windows. Good, good, now next week we'll work on how Microsoft didn't copy OS X with Windows Vista.
