Windows Black Edition
Posted 02 October 2008 - 02:37 PM
If I remember correctly, Windows Black Edition is one of cracked, slipstreamed Windows editions that some people or Warez group make and populate around the Internet, usually through Warez and P2P sites. What slipstreamed means is that it already contains a number of software applications that most people find useful, and those applications are usually cracked as well.
Keep in mind though that these editions are all essentially illegal. And more often than not, they contain viruses and/or trojan horses built into them. The Windows Black Edition in particular has a bad reputation of being unstable, sometimes showing the notorious Blue Screen of Death right after installation. The reason Windows Black has received so much publicity over other slipstreamed versions is, I assume, because of its stylish, Vista-ish look and myriad of customization options.

What is that commercial... they have windows _____ as the 'next' windows in a test but it ends up being vista Surprised there aren't more people thinking that is legit, heh. But yea, the 'name' of the next windows or the one after that isn't really relevant. I mean, its just a name or codename, so it's not overly important. Hell even information about it at this point is useless since it'll change so much by the time a real release gets here, years from now.

The Mojave project was just to test people that obviously didn't know what vista looked like, but had heard of other people saying they didn't like it therefore they developed bad opinions about vista as well. The first reaction you get is "wow maybe I should give vista a try", but then you look at the statistics and most of the people have either never had a computer before or have been using a Windows XP or earlier model. Only 1 percent of the people tested used Linux (which is a little interesting why they pretty much left them out of the survey).
Windows Blackcomb is now planned to release in June 3, 2009 a year earlier then originally scheduled (probably due to the fact people just don’t like vista much).
I do have one question though. What ever happened to windows longhorn? I have never seen anyone use it but archives say it was released in 2001 after Windows XP? Did they just not make in public in the United States or something or is it the same as Windows Vista?

But just knew the next version of windows was called windows 7.
And it's pre-beta copy will be availabe for beta tester and developer
on the PDC at NOV.
I also saw some guess screen that showed the UI will be using ribbon UI
like office 2007 used now.

Slipstreaming an OS is NOT a bad thing and is used by legitimate people, like me, to make maintaining my systems easier and faster. For, example: After I have blown-up my computer for the 1,000th time and decide to do a clean install of, say, Vista, I can use my purchased retail DVD. But, since it does not include Sp1 nor Sp2, I would then have to install those Service Packs manually. Or, I could slipstream Sp1 into my retail DVD and save myself ninety minutes by using the Slipstreamed DVD to install Vista Sp1 in one shot. (Note: I do not know of a means to slipstream Vista Sp2.)
In addition, I can slipstream Language Packs, Updates and some third-party apps as well thereby saving even more time during installation/reinstallation.
So, don't blame the tool for the way thieves choose to misuse it.

My Compaq laptop "died" last year and my computer repairman installed Windows Vista Black edition on it. Can I buy a Widows Vista or Windows 7 edition and install it on my laptop? I know I would have to un-install my Black addition, but wouldn't Microsoft find out? How can I do this with getting into trouble with Microsoft with the edition that I already have? Is there a way I can install Windows 7 without Microsoft knowing that I have Vista Black right now? Thanks-reply by john smith

I have my existing OS Vista Ultimate not original...To erase the pain although still working as of today..I bought Ultimate Vista With Crack to my intention to used the crack in my operation system...Monthly I used the skip ream method which I found my ultimate solution...But monthly...I am bored so I divert my interest to used the crack of my new CD Ultimate Vista with Crack. My question does it work without a clean format and directly used the crack instead?-question by ASYNCRITUS ANICETO
