Highlights of the article:

- Took an extremly long time to install (he did it overnight)

- 4-5 problems with the installation

- Vista stated that several programs already on this persons computer were incompatable, including HP printer software and WINDOWS MESSANGER

-There are two versions, and one is called Arrow (supposedly it's the good one), and it requires something like 15 gig open memory, and some other hardware just to install.

-Once it was installed, it performed about the same as XP, with huge visual upgrades.






Again, he suggested waiting for the kinks to be worked out and to stick with XP for now.


Yeah, I am waiting until at LEAST March or April before I even think about upgrading.

For teh Ultimate version, you are supposed to have at least 1 gig of RAM and most people say that practically you really need 2 gig. So you DO need a TON of memory to run the thing. :-/

I think most people will wait until they get their next computer before upgrading to Vista. That's what I plan on doing because a lot of computers aren't Vista compatible.

Exactly. We're going to buy a laptop here soon, and if it comes with Vista great, but I'm not going to go out and buy it. XP is fine with me.

Even if it gets locked, there's ways around that. Anytime someone closes a door, windows open.
