While i was in Singapore, my laptop (Samsung Q35) crashed. Since i did not have my recovery CD with me, i went to Plaza Singapura where Samsung Service center was. I was told that they would reformat the system, and would take at least 5 days to do that.(What????) Since I wasn't staying that long, i decided to buy another OS.
At the Funan Center (much like the Philippines' Virra Mall), i bough a Vista OS. Installed it and had it running. Wow! Vista seems to make my laptop much faster than it was before (Windows XP). So i wonder where the bad press Microsoft was getting from bloggers that said otherwise. The Samsung hardware was able to run the glass look and more importantly, the AERO interface.
Here is the picture of Funan with Windows Vista on the front of the building:
