Visual Tour: 20 Reasons Why Windows Vista Will Be Your Next OS
June 27, 2006 (Computerworld) – Ask any serious Windows Vista beta tester, and you’ll get the word. Microsoft has packed a lot of positive change into the next version of Windows. It’s the most significant update of the operating system since Windows 95. It’s jam-packed with important new features for enterprises and end users alike.
Security, power and performance, applied graphics and user interface improvements, wireless networking, desktop search, usability updates, new performance monitoring and diagnostics, and an upgraded bevy of onboard applications such as Internet Explorer 7+ and Windows Defender are some of the main areas where Microsoft has beefed up Vista. Enterprise features, such as expanded group policies, whole-drive encryption and hardware-agnostic Windows imaging, are especially welcome.
For quick info, this is the minimum specs for the beta and should be the same as the actual release:
A modern processor (at least 800MHz1).
512 MB of system memory.
A graphics processor that is DirectX 9 capable.
1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor1.
1 GB of system memory.
A graphics processor that runs Windows Aero2.
128 MB of graphics memory.
40 GB of hard drive capacity with 15 GB free space.
Audio output capability.
Internet access capability.
I think i’ll stick with Windows XP for at least for another year. I really like the look and features of Vista but i think there will be still some bugs and compatible issue. I do not want to change my modem, printer, ect so that i can run windows vista smoothly. too many bad experience with the transition to windows XP previously. However, thinking of using mac though so might not even have a chance to change it that soon…
:lol: Agreed Totally…They never did have a nice job finding the flaw of the problem…*maybe it is hidden in one of those huge high stacks and it will never be found…so have to restart building another problem maker again…
