Satisfied Vista User
Lets see, HP Pavilion machine with 2gb of ram and 256mb of graphics memory......oh and a 3.2ghz processor.
Not a wildly over-specced machine but Vista runs fine with no complaints.
I've used Win95, 98SE, ME, XP, XPSP1, XPSP2 & Vista Home Premium, and the only one I have a serious complaint about and would refuse to ever use again is ME.
Never been to America but I know where Maryland is. Maybe you're guilty of not knowing enough about the world in which you live? I don't know every town or city in every country, but enough to know that Maryland is a state in the USA. Just like DC or Florida.
I like Vista!
I've used DOS, Win3.1, Win95, Win98SE, WinME, WinXP, WinNT & Vista.
The worst is ME, no doubt about it.
At present though I have a laptop running XP Home and a desktop running Vista Home Premium.
No problems at all with Vista, runs smoothly, is quick and the biggest hurdle was having to manually download drivers for the graphics card I had fitted. Hardly a chore.
I brought a new PC from PC World (needed one quick or would've had one built at local PC shop) for £499.
That's an Intel Celereon D 3.46Ghz with 120GB HDD & 1GB of RAM.
Only mods I made was to go straight from PC World to local PC store and ask to them add another 1GB of RAM and add a 256MB graphics card.
Cost me about £60.
I'm currently running Vista, AVG, ZoneAlarm, iTunes, MSN Msngr, Vista SIdebar with 3 gadgets and the WIndows task maanger.
CPU Usage: Jumping between 8% & 20%
Physical Memory: 47%
And iTunes is loading the music from an external HDD plugged into my router via Ethernet.
Is Vista really that bad?
