I have two major issues with Vista, without these it would be a great system to use.

1. The minimum/recommended requirements. These are pretty high up there, with the minimum RAM, CPU, and 15 gb free space on the hard drive? That seems like a bit much.

2. Being as new as it is, there are compatibility issues, with software and hardware developers working around the clock to try and tag their products with "Vista Compatible" stickers. Where I work, a lot of our vista issues are incompatible drivers/ older software without vista compatibility.

I do have to say though, it is a definite visual improvement over XP. Although I don't know how much that matters to most people, I like it that Microsoft finally made a good looking interface.

Also, I hear that for some business machines and vista ultimate users Microsoft is offering a free downgrade to windows XP. That doesn't scream product confidence to me.

well, i disabled all visual enhancements, aero, the lot basically except to show thumbnails instead of icons. Visuals dont do anything for me on an OS.

Personally, I think that Vista is the new ME...

It slows everything down and the "Cancel or Allow" thing drove me crazy!

I am back to using XP Pro!

I waited several months and finally got an excellent deal on an Acer desktop with a dual-core Athalon 3600 CPU,1Gig ofDDR2 RAM, 250 Gig HDD (SATA),dual-layer DVD +/- recorder, with Vista Home Premium, 17"LCD and an HP all-in-one. It has 256 MB shared RAM with nVidea 6100 graphics, and for what I do, (pretty light stuff, word processing, chess, mahjong, etc). its just fine. I love the graphics and for what I do it seems pretty fast.  So far I'm really happy with it, but I must admit I've done no real work with it yet. thumbs_up.gif  smile.gif
PS. When I figured out the cost of the peripherals,and the OS, the computer only cost me $20.00!

I used Vista a couple times and do not really like it. I will stay with my WinXP as long as I can. I think they made some settings and preferences in Vista too complicated and sometimes it is almost impossible to find. Like just today I spent about 10 minutes figuring out how to delite dial-up connection, in XP for example everything in Connect To... menu,  in Vista I have no idea where I found it, I think I was lucky to find it, I tryed to click everywhere and finaly found somehow that manager of connections or something like that.

I do not like it. My screen goes black and says display driver has stopped working and after a few minutes it will come back up. It constanly freezes up on me. It has been a real headache for me.

I hate it mainly because many of my existing programs no longer work. I had to get it because I needed a new PC but I sure miss Windows XP. Windows vista is merely a means for Microsoft to make a lot more money.

I agree, the new pc industry will be more than likely where MS gets their greatest purchase. Although, if they do create big changes with the MC sideof it, I may just have to go buy a duplicate. I would of never of considered that I would use the MC aspect of it so much, but I have come to really like it.

It looks like this OS is way ahead of the market being prepared for it. Driver issues are absolutely terrible. So plenty of drivers still don't run stable, but when they do, this will be a pleasant OS. Windows Vista is a really good for your work.

Vista is not good, you can use window 7 instead of it if your motherboard and processor supports it otherwise install windows xp sp3 for getting best performance.
