Windows Vista: Road to Gold November 5, 2006

Posted by sk in Microsoft, windows.
trackback

Microsoft’s oft-delayed OS finally goes into RTM sometime this week. In response, Paul Thurrott has written a series of articles that track Vista’s development during the last five years. I’m providing the links to them for those of you who are interested:

Wow! Five years is a long, long time for an Operating System to be in development, right? If you’re only interested in the present and future of Vista, read only Part 7.

[…] How often blog prose simply begs for a scathing response. In the most recent post at the distasteful Sparks Team Blog, we are told that they have provided links to some supposed information about Microsoft’s latest operating system (how I resent them for making me utter such tedious words). They inform us that they have provided these “links” for those of you who are interested. […]

Of course, anyone who is not can write a review of this post in particular and site in general, like our dear friend, billymouth did!

I thought I’d try Vista in the new computer I was supposed to buy but the computer guy says it’s not much use and moreover a pirated Vista costs you Rs. 900 whereas a pirated Windows XP costs you Rs. 250 including Nero,McAfee and Microsoft Office XP Pro + Service Pack 2 which is almost close to awesome.Vista does require a lot of hardware backup too..a DVD Drive,512MB RAM and a processor above Pentium 4 and that’s the minimum requirements.They suggest that you should go for Vista only if you have 1 gig RAM and the new Centrino/Core 2 Duo and not many people have that kind of configuration.It does look delicious all the same.

You’re right. Vista Premium does have very stringent requirements. You need at least 1GB RAM, Video card with 128MB dedicated or shared memory, and a very good processor. It apparently crashes a lot otherwise. I can understand the video card requirements because all the graphics etc. are left to the video card now rather than the processor. That should free up some RAM and I don’t know why memory requirements are so high.

BTW, don’t install a pirated copy of Vista right now. For all you know, it might be a Beta2 or RC1 version and not the final one that is going to be released to businesses in 10 days.
