If phpBB were the only forum software in existence, there would be a massive number of developers, a massive number of users, bugs would be fixed quicker, features would be added quicker, people would save money, we'd be up to about phpBB 10 by now, this Olympus would have been released and used and...

FYI: It actually runs as fast, if not faster than XP on my box, so i'm not sure where your information is coming from, but mine is coming from personal experience. Mark I used Vista Beta 2 myself too. It was about 33 to 75% slower than XP on my AMD dual-core system. I even tried disabling some of V...

who said that they wanted to be? if these guys want to be the google of the forum world, i'm sure they've still got a frew tricks left up their sleeves :wink: Usually, when you compete, you want to win.

It already is. Unless a miracle happens in Microsoft, Vista might be the slowest and most inefficient OS ever made.

Or, it's a massive compliment for common sense and the notion to use whatever works best for oneself. :wink: With that, how would phpBB ever be able to crush vBulletin, SMF, Invision, etc. and achieve a forum monopoly? phpBB already managed to undercut them on pricing, but now the competition seems...

I've already told my members if phpBB3 isn't ready by August then I am shelling out the bucks for vBulletin. If you think that's what works best for you, then by all means shell out for a vB license. phpBB3 will be done when it's done. :) This would be either a massive compliment for vBulletin or a...

Early? It was first talked about publicly by MS in 2001, and with it now due to ship in 2007, we're over 80% through. Most public pre-release versions of Mac OS X (including the alphas) have been almost completely usable for day to day use. So? I don't think pre-release versions are meant for full ...

Lower system requirements usually mean that the OS is more efficient with system resources, so it is a valid judgement criteria if you want to get the most out of your RAM and CPU power.

I just went with a clean install with Vista, which is the best way to install any OS.

I tried a dual-boot with 2000 and XP some time ago. I installed XP first, 2000 second. Big mistake, 2000 didn't understand XP (since 2000 was older) and therefore proceeded to sabotage XP's boot information.

The only software requirement that looks a little odd is the: 11 GB of hard disk space for installation Where is your source ? Seems like a lot for an OS regardless if its new or not. If you can't meet the min specs with the other requirements, your computer is pretty outdated :S I installed Window...

An open-source software, like phpBB for example, might even have an extra advantage (example: if the Development Team all quit tomorrow, someone else would likely step up and fix bugs/security holes out of the sheer demand for a reliable phpBB). Closed-source depends entirely on the company and its ...

Let's all face it. XP is likely to be the last good Windows we will ever have. Vista is bloated, and polluted with DRM. Long live XP... When XP dies (gets obsolete or if Microsoft discontinues security fixes) it should then be a good time for a full-scale exodus to Linux, and then we can set the sta...
