Those sound more like it. Although I warn everyone even though I won't have this OS long after its out....if you run it on 256mb ram....it'll lag. Thats why ya need 1gb

vista is already out?!!??!?! wtf??

TRD ... it's not that we dont think 1gb should be used ... just dispute the 1 gb minimum. I know various people do more than just burn cd's and dvd's, but I was just pointing out (especially with DVD's) that my cpu usage wasn't 100% as expected when doing tasks such as burning or using apps.
My point is that the specs you first spelled out ... well ... they're incorrect. Dont take it personal ... you didnt test and set the specs - PC-World did.

Computergen you are correct ... the Vista Im running is the latest beta from MSDN via my company's partnership with Microsoft.

WIndows is stupid liek that. Always making new os' that when they come the older os no longer have updates or donwloads avaiable to them. Windows and their monopoly.

Question
Obviously ive heard of vista. What are solitude and blackcomb, mentioned earlier in this thread?
