  • Windows Vista

    I'm trying out Windows Vista right now and it is absolutely gorgeous. The entire setup is perfect. The only problem is that on older machines don't have the necessary speed to run applications as well as they do on XP. I have a 2.6 GHz processor and it runs great when nothing is installed, but I think it will get too slow when more processes are running. Vista makes XP look like crap. I'm probably going to go back to XP until I get a faster machine. It's going to be hard to go back to XP, so i'm going to be looking into a new machine soon. If you have Vista, tell us what you think about it.

      How fast is your processor? Does it run good?

          It's definitely better then XP. But the DRM rumor did irk me, but It's mostly the movie studios thing. I need upgrade my machine to really take advantage of the visual features. But I will definitely "buy" a copy.

            It's 1.6 GHZ and it runs like a charm.

            That being said I don't put any music on my laptop, and only put Civ 4 on here cause I like to play that on roadtrips and what not. Everything else is on my PC.

                  I'm an adult. I have a job. I do presentations and use it to store documents and take notes.

                  I have an MP3 for portable music.

                          So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                            Nope, unfortunately (for Mac owners) it isn't.

                              The Vista GUI does have Mac similarities. I mean the Aero and Aqua are very similar. The functionality between the two are alike also, but that's just the progress in home computing.
