Microsoft Vista Windows

The Wow has started now!

Well many of you out there have seen Vista and maybe have been playing with it for the past few months, well I booted a Vista PC, it was my own, I probably played with it for about 2 minutes before I realized why it looked like crap, I didn’t have drivers for my graphics card. I quit playing with it after that. Yesterday I recieved in the mail my copy of Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit version. It really is a much better operating system than Windows XP. I’m using it right now as a HTPC and its great. I have Juiced downloading all of my podcasts and then I click the little Start button on my remote control and Media Center pops up. It works great.

I haven’t had any problems with it crashing at all (not that I had problems with XP). I really like the look and feel of the OS, I don’t think I like the new start menu but I haven’t had too much time to play with it and get used to it.

I do have a fairly fast machine, here’s what I’m running:

Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Soc. 939
2GB DDR 400 Memory
160GB SATA HDD
Geforce 7800GT
EVGA nForce 4 SLI Motherboard

I don’t think that it runs any slower than XP did for me so that whole arguement is a little dumb.

I’m now on to installing it on a bit of a slower machine, the one I’m building for my mom and I’ll let you guys know how it runs on that.
