1 gig of ram isnt gonna really get u anywere with vista. vista is like a cannonball tied with a chain to the foot of ur ram....
except, ten times bigger probably. if i ever get vista for free, i would get it sure, but i would make sure the looks are to a minaimum to keep performance up and-wateva. xp 4eva....no not really.
Have you ever actually used Vista for more than a few minutes?? Everyone makes it out to be this huge resource hog, but most computers bought within the last couple years will most likely run it just fine.
1 GB of RAM is plenty for Vista for the average user. At idle on the desktop, it uses just over 512 MB (I have the RTM installed, x86 version currently). Most people will then open up their E-mail and Internet Explorer, and maybe a word processor. Nothing too intense there, and 1 GB of RAM (which costs just over $100 now) will more than suffice for it. I'm not saying it doesn't use a lot of RAM, because it does. I'm just saying that for the average user, it really shouldn't be a problem.
I'm just getting sick of people bashing Vista when they haven't even fully experienced it yet. I'm not looking at anyone directly, but I've read through a few posts of people saying how crappy Vista is, and I could tell they've never even seen it in use.
Overall, I think it's a good OS. Yes, some minor improvements are necessary, but it is pretty good for being just release IMHO. XP had at least just as many problems when it came out, if not many more. I guess everyone just over-hyped it, and thought it was going to be perfect the day it came out.
