After downloading Vista Enterprise from MSDN and finally got round to installing it!!! And wow!! It's really is pretty! a total joy to use.
To top it off I installed Office 2007 and am publishing this post with Word 2007.
I have had a couple of problems installing it with a few things not working straight away I had to search around for some drivers and my printer software wont install but the drivers are OK.
My PC has a rank of 4.0 on the "Vista Scale" out of (apparently) 5.9(?) see more here; next year when I hopefully get a Quad Core machine I will be at or above 5.9! I have two monitors which function fine (although I would have liked to have seen a utility for sending windows to different monitors instead of using something like Multi Mon).
A couple views from Vista....(One of my favs!)
IE7 with Graphite colour.....
Now a couple of problems that are bugging me perhaps someone can shed some light....
When running VS 2005 Team for software devs I get this...
...if I click Run Program it seems to work fine? Checking for solutions online tells me there is an issue but nothing more
Then there is User Access control, every time I try and run something like Computer Manager my screens go Black for a split second then I get asked if I want to allow it...I can see the benefit of this but surely logged in as Admin running parts of the OS should be OK or at least remember that I have allowed it?!? If I turn it off I am greeted with a warning every time I log in.
Going to continue re-installing my software and see what else pops up. J
