Interesting...
you cant install vista on a macbook. period. doesnt have the correct boot record or something. but windows xp is fully installable with the help of boot camp.

but the macbook has gma950....which runs aero.

For the people who bought xp and got a free upgrade coupon and have sent it in already. I'm asking when are we getting them. Sorry for being a moron and not being clear.
I really don't understand why it would take so long for MS to get them out to people.

A teacher came in the other day and had Vista on the laptop he brought us.. now, he wanted a firewall and various software on...

1. Vista only works with norton (what a suprise)
2. No damn software will go on!!!

Why are they making it sound as if its customer ready when it clearly isnt!

Have you downloaded the latest NOD32 from the site? Ive installed it on 3 vista builds now, with no problems.

Windows Server 2003 is really on of the OS of choices for me. Windows XP is also one of the best one. What I like from Windows from Linux is that Windows is flexible and really can take anything on it. Linux is a freaking straight built, and I can't always install what I want.

Those LIB stuff it the pain in the butt of the year. XGL doesn't work right.
