I personally am witness to some strange happenings on my computer - namely my Mozilla Firefox was VERY SLOW, AND HANGING OFTEN. Its not that my computer is fast, its VERY FAST with 4GB of Ram, a Quad Core Phenon 9600 Processor, ad infinitum.
Strangely and magically when I unstalled the latest security patches from 'Microzoft' all of a sudden the machine speed up incredibly - and my Mozilla is working well again... Lets get realistic here - Windows XP has been out for several years now, and they are still releasing 'patches' for it. Strangely I also noticed that my Mozilla Firefox would hang, but my Internet Explorer would still work. I would physically throw the computer into the garbage before I would use Internet Explorer - PERIOD.
Vista is a crime against humanity all you need to read is found at BadVista.org: Stopping Microsoft Windows Vista adoption by promoting free software — BadVista
and now I am wondering if they are 'encouraging' transition over to Vista by 'crippling' XP with 'security patches.'
Anyone noticing anything similar?
