Re: Windows Vista Rant: two weeks and counting
After installing & tinkering with Vista64 today I really don't see any reason for anybody to move from XP yet other than wanting to tinker with Vista. Yeah Vista64 see's a full 4gb of ram which is nice but too bad its looking like some of my applications won't even run with Vista64 which kills it for me.
I thought Vista64 was suppose to have some kind of compatibility mode, windows on windows or something like that to run 32bit apps.
Anyways I haven't tinkered with it a heck of allot yet but so far it just seems like a flashy XP with lost compatibility, I don't see any stand out advantages yet.
Maybe when DX10 games come out I might change my mind but for now I'm really not impressed at all.
