becaise although they manage to coem up with 101 things to patch up their bugs in all the previous issues, there will always be a talent hidden somewhere in this planet that can unearth another big bug....
programming is a very tough thing.... because it is so long and complex.... there is bound to be some unanticipated errors somewhere... cant be helped...
09 Oct 09 officially marks the date I become a canon convert.
Personally, it is not recommended to upgrate to Vista at the moment. Those who use photoshop or other image editing software, you will need at least 3GB RAM or 4GB RAM. The latest notebook is expandable to 4GB RAM but bloody expensive for 1 stick of 2GB RAM and hardly find in the market.
IMHO, it's not worth for the eye candy interface like Windows Aero. I have read many reviews and most reviews said that there is no improvement on the software or games speed unless you go for 64-bit provided the software is 64-bit supported.
Also, if you want to buy Vista, go for the Ultimate edition only else dont buy. The Ultimate edition costs around 660+, OEM is about 330+.
If you run Vista + MS Office 2007, you will need at least 2GB RAM to run them smoothly and no photoshop to be run concurrently.
I'd been running VISTA, Office 2007 for few months... 1GB RAM sufficient leow
Make sure you have a good graphics card and not the Intel graphics using shared memory. The Windows Vista api is suppose to make use of your graphics card's GPU which XP does not.
FYI, for the 32-bit Windows Vista, there is a theoretical 4GB limit on accessible RAM. Installing any more is probably useless until you get the 64bit version
Some people have installed 4GB but Vista reported less than that because it had something to do with the amount of RAM that Vista can address at once.
You can read this is you want to know more
There's also some stuff about how Vista uses RAM here
Interesting to read
Not sure if there are any real world implications
Can someone enlight me on Vista. My notebook is Compaq V3020TU Core Duo with 1.5gig ram.
Should I buy the 32bit or the 64bit Vista OS?
