Default Re: Vista Information!

my pc should be able to run vista if i just get a gb of ram. 1gb seems to go for around 40-50 on ebay (suppose it is a bit expensive) so i may dual boot soon

YES! If your friend has Call of Duty 2 on the Xbox 360 and you have Call of Duty 2 on Windows Vista, with the Live Anywhere network, he can send an invite for you to join him on a multiplayer match, reguardless of the fact that you're on a PC and he's on a Xbox 360. Get it? It's awesome.

there won't be a 'media center version' per say, but there will be a few versions, which vary in power.. ultimate is the best version and of course most expensive. theres also the home premium, which is a level below.. business edition, some other ones and one that is completely stripped down, but i don't think that version will be available in the united states.

These are just recommended specs, right? It's not a case of it not installing if you don't have the right stuff, is it?

Those are the minimum specs to get Vista running smoothly.

It's called Beta for a reason. I don't get why people who dislike Windows keep using it. There are alternatives like Linux, or if you know how, Mac OS X.
