I installed the 32bit version to see how it would work with my older programs.
None the less Vista isnt for me. The system requirements are way to high, with minimum requirements met it is way too slow, and small things anouy me with Vista. Im giving Microsoft 2-3 years before I upgrade. Maybe then some decently fast processors and RAM will be avalable to keep Vista running fast.
It was actually no faster than my Pentium 3, 256meg, XP computer I am on right now. XP is WAY faster on this machiene.
IMO, Microsoft has a good thing going with XP...if they dump XP in the next few years they will be sorry. Good OS system, if you are a completer computer n00b...in which case buy Apple.
By reminded, mine is a trial version and feedback like that is what microsoft was looking for from its OEM Builders (which my dad's buiness is one of, how I got ahold of the software). Microsoft may fix the little annoyances and some of the slowness by the time it is intended to be released early next year.
