So who's going to dish out the cash to upgrade when vista rolls out?

Do I hear crickets?

Vista RC1

Post by g0fvt »

Running Vista RC1 on just a laptop at the moment, a huge improvement over Beta 2. Have Beta 2 on a 2400+ Athlon and not very impressed with it, RC1 is massively improved.

I have a horrible feeling that Vista will be very expensive, we will see.

Tempted to try RC1 on a spare BP6 out of curiosity.

Incidentally I still run a BP6 24/7 as webserver, mailserver DNS etc.

That's great. I wonder if the BP6 could cope?

BP6 and Vista

I will let you know, only big issue I have seen with RC1 is "windows scaling" I believe packets can be too long for some routers hence no internet!
