    where do all these idiots come from? It's not windows, it's just a piece of homebrew that looks like windows. We'll never get .exe working on ds lol.

    Doesn't Vista use a GB of ram at a time on a PC?
    Theres no way Vista would ever run on a DS/DSi.
    Things happening before Vista on DS/DSi:
    Hell Freezing
    Pigs Flying (*shoots anyone thinking about saying the word "Swine Flu"*)
    Universe Exploding
    And Jack Thomson enjoying playing and saying positive comments about an M rated game.

    The whole wintendos project is crap i mean it has nothing just a windows like gui with
    1.notepad
    2.calculator
    3.shitty sd explorer(my computer)
    4.minesweeper

    Wintendows Vista will never be made
    But if you really want a good windows gui on the ds wait for menudo as its incredable skinning could make it like vista but never except windows to be ported on the ds

    God I hope not. To put something so horrible and f'ugly looking (I know it's not the OS, just a look a like. Seriously, Windows looks horrid. WHY IN GODS NAME DO YOU WANT YOUR DS TO LOOK LIKE A PILE OF SHIT SPEWED FROM THE DEPTS OF HELL ITSELF!?) on your DS is stupid. I hope the creators of WindowDS (or whatever they like to call it) burn to their death.

    Not everyone wants to go through the hassle of learning Linux...unless you're a real geek/anti-windows, it isn't worth it.

    And not true, It can be entirely worth it, using Linux completely bypasses NT File Security and is perfect for recovering files after a Windows reinstallation that blocked you out of private folders due to the ACL. Also Linux is becoming more and more user friendly, the only people who think that learning linux is a hassle are the ones who have only tried the server versions and versions without X and a Window/Desktop manager pre-installed. It's also more flexible than windows and with the creation of WINE, windows programs can even execute inside Linux and not through PC emulation. Before you brand linux as Anti-Windows/GeekOS please do your research, try Ubuntu using Wubi which installs Ubuntu onto your computer like a Windows App which you reboot and select Ubuntu from the Windows Boot Menu and uninstall it like another program. It's quite simple.

    In Fact, I should reboot and finish my Windows Ubuntu install so I can run Warcraft 3 finally (Windows 7 won't run it)

    So the only reason we should use Linux is because it's just like Windows? You know what's also just like Windows? Windows! Also, the thing about the file security and private folder, all you need to do is download Ultimate Windows Tweaker, turn on the "Take Ownership" option in the right click menu, and use that to access secure files. Just yesterday I did a fresh install of Windows 7, and I used this tool to delete all the programs left over from the old install (I have my OS and Programs in separate partitions) because for some reason, the old Windows 7 install's admin still had ownership.

    Linux is nothing like windoze. the only reason why some linuxs behave similar to windows to to make them more user friendly for people who are used to windoze. Ubuntu linux is much easier to install than windoze xp and just as easy to learn.

    I know that there is never gonna be a vista on DS and I know that Wintendos Xp isn't really XP, I'm Saying that will they just edit wintendos XP and make the taskbar vista like & stuff. Cuz I know that DS will never ever EVER have enough RAM.

    You would have to completely recompile it from source with the Vista-ish bitmaps in place of the XP images, either that or find a resource editor that supports NDS (afaik there is none)
