Woow WIndows Vista.. what a hot subject i can say. I have talked a lot in my area with many of my friends and all of them had only positive thoughts about it. I can say that i was blow off by this new windows system. Some things certainly lack to it but this new look which Microsoft has incorporated in it certainly do the money you would give for it. I have waited this new system for 2 weeks and here i am using it. It was pretty hard for me to buy it because in my area it can't be found. So i had to ask a friend from another part of my country to order me. I am so happy using it and all i have are only words of gratitdue. I post here a short description about VISTA. Windows Vista contains hundreds of new features; some of the most significant include an updated graphical user interface (GUI) and visual style dubbed Windows Aero, improved searching features, new multimedia creation tools such as Windows DVD Maker, and completely redesigned networking, audio, print, and display sub-systems. Vista also aims to increase the level of communication between machines on a home network using peer-to-peer technology, making it easier to share files and digital media between computers and devices. For developers, Vista includes version 3.0 of the .NET Framework out of the box. The .Net Framework makes it significantly easier for developers to write high-quality applications than with the traditional Windows API. I would rate Vista the winner because it is better than the 'old' XP

it does since it also has a more updated direct x & other graphic intensive interface applications. since its an update of the XP it surely does marvels wherein the latter is not capable of, surely signs of time too one has to upgrade our PCs since it - Vista - demands more HD space & its loaded w/ heavy applications bigger memory capacity, FSB capacity, SATA connectivity more powerful AGPs to really maximize what Vista can do for you. but for now XP will be far more practical & feasible. this was the same debate during the comparisons of Win98 against the XP. great to have you here, your lordship :-)
