...or should I buy XP at the local Uni for $75 while I still can?
Thanks for any advice.
Windows Vista will be out about January 2007.
And Robert Fripp is playing the soundscapes.
Buy it. Early adopters are crazy, IMO.
true...on the release date Windows Vista will most likely just be Windows XP, now added more bugs!
Wow, Windows Vista looks interesting, but I figure it will be more difficult for the experienced user to work efficiently.
Yo won't be seeing me switch to Vista until at least mid-2008. I used Win2K up until 2005 when I finally switched to XP. Finally un-buggy enough for my own use.
True - it's like buying a car when they come out with a totally new model or a model revamp. The first year is usually rushed to the release date with known errors or bugs that become "rolling changes" once they're fixed. With Windows it's that x a billion.
I'll grab a copy through work first, run it for a while, test software etc before making any critical switches. It will probably be fine, but EVERY first copy of something needs tweaks.
I just hope I have better luck with that and my new car. Getting an 07 HHR this summer. One of the first of the 2nd model year.
I had the chance to work on some of the applications for Vista several months ago when I worked for MS. January 2007 sounds reasonably, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is pushed back. I have a couple beta copies that I am still using. Cool stuff.
*Note: Yes, there's a wiener in the picture. It's Adam and Eve. No big deal.
omg weiner lulz
The American version of that picture would have the man covering up, and the woman bearing it all as she helplessly runs away.
It actually looks pretty cool with a lot of neat features. It will also be better for gaming than previous versions of Windows.
What about Windows X64? I remember before it came out there was a lot of talk about it.
Is anyone using it? My guess it that there are no practical uses for it yet with the lack of 64 bit applications.
Just wondering if a 64 bit processor with widows X64 runs 32 bit applications any better.
That's essentially what Vista is, just wanted a more marketable name. That being said, if you get Vista, make sure your system can handle it, it's a hog. My school got the beta and the PC it's on has a low end AMD64 CPU and it can barely run it.
well brian eno did the windows 95 intro, it only makes sense
Do you need an OS now? If so it makes no sense to wait for Vista.
Can also go the Linux route. For general web browsing kinds of things, both Fedora and SUSE Linux work nicely.
