Default Re: Is your PC Windows Vista ready?

Why would PC World make the assumption of setting the specs so high though? When people read their magazines and see the specs as I did, they're like "what the hell?" I think that's just that. One big hype for Vista. I didn't even know Beta 2 was out ,let alone Beta 3. What kind of improvements are made at each Beta stage?

well, one thing is though, if they required you to have those specs, then microsoft could up the features a little bit more, such as they could revamp windows media player for higher performance video cards, they could support so many more standard features, that you need third party for currently

My comp should be ready. Hopefully, though, I'll get a new comp by the time vista comes out...

I'd put that on my laptop, and you'd smell the smoke before the desktop shows up

It's probably already been said but this is a long post so i've only read a bit, how much hard drive space is this gonna eat??

Only reason I would get this is to test it and maybe to see how it works to help with my Clients, Otherwise I will stick to running Slack or Gentoo or the like

You are not going to want to run Vista when it 1st comes out. Come on its Microsoft at least wait for SP2. I just recently went from windows 2000 to XP PRO

Having 8 different editions is dumb. And i heard that it will be able to run on both a 64 bit CPU AND a 32bit CPU.
