The Official Vistabulary

What is this page?

This page is dedicated to new words created with combination with the word VISTA that is the new Operating System by Microsoft. This page will be organized into a database later on.

I created this page so that credit can go to the creator of the word,
along with the original meaning attached to the word.

I am listed as K

Vistabulary (vocabulary for Vista words)

(I bet he had a great view up there)

Bill Gates mimicking JFK's moon speech:
"No single computer project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of technology; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish,"
(difficult & expensive? You can say that again!)

Mr Spock: Vistanating (meaning that it is fascinating that this bloated technology works)
Live Long and Vista: (this is not a blessing like "live long and prosper". This is a curse.. meaning you will live forever in hell.

Yoda: May the Vista be with you! (He is actually trying to get rid of vista so its better with you than with me!)


(Shakespeare Parody -- from Intel Inside)


"To beta, or not to beta: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of Releasing To Manufacturing,
Or to take arms against a sea of bugs,
And by opposing end them? To TBT: to CPP;
No more; and, by CPP to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
That Vista is heir to, 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished."

Bill Gates, "Hamlet" (1600-01)

If I'm not back online again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my netcard time is done
Sends shivers down my cable line
Back is aching all the time

Goodbye everybody - I've got to go offline
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo - (anyways windows blows)
I don't want my connection to die

Ending the Fight between linux and windows users FOREVER!

Why fight when you can have BOTH running SEAMLESSLY on the same desktop???
HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE you may ask?????

Well it is using various techniques... YES this is a geeks dream, to have ultimate flexibility and use whatever OS he wants at the SAME time!

1st method: Get ANDLINUX read that site to get a drift of what this is and see

a screencap that is worth 1000 words:

Linux and windows apps running side by side!

2nd method: Install KDE 4.0 for WINDOWS.. YES believe it or not, the NEW KDE 4.0 runs NATIVELY on windows... all you have to do is install the KDE apps and that's it!

See Links:

Good Guide with screenshots

General Info

Download KDE 4 for windows:   (warning beta still)

3rth Method: VirtualBox Seamless mode!

Yes virtual box is an open source virtual machine with something extra! When installed on a Linux platform

you can run a windows virtual machine SEAMLESSLY (with 2 taskbars one for linux and one for windows WOW!) on the linux desktop and have all apps on the same desktop!

Of course this means you will have Linux as your base OS and install Windows inside the virtual machine.

More info

see image


I hope I have been able to intrigue you all a bit... and let me say something more here.

Its not about what OS is best. If you really like computers you should like all kinds of operating systems and computers

as long as they are good. I personally use everything I can get my hands on, and that gives me universal understanding

about the nature of computers. So basically there is no real debate. Its all up to YOU. What can YOU do better given

all the technology available? That's the question you must ask yourself.... and use everything that is in your disposal.
