I'm running the Current build on what is now Legacy Hardware. IE
Dell Dimension 8300. The is a 478 pin 3.4ghz (HT) with 1.5 gb of Ram in Dual Channel running an ATI 9800 pro and Creative Audigy 2 ZS Gamer Edition.
Vista runs well. (As long as that's all I'm running.) Legacy programs bog the system down b/c Vista has to facillitate; not only Security features, but Programs that you're currently running. Taking a quick peak on some of the errors the Vista reported, lead me to believe the very security features implemented may make Vista Vulnerable.
I'm not a programmer, so I don't have any expertise on the Subject. It was after reading some posts on other blogs and critiquing the various errors that led me to think this. Also, messenger programs seem to dislike Vista's graphics. When trying to run Yahoo messenger, it errored out and stated Graphics as the problem. Granted this version of Messenger wasn't meant for Vista. But I thought improved graphics were a part of Vista.
Not Too sure about Vista
I think I'll stick with Symphony OS at this point in time. Symphony is fast becoming the Linux Alternative. And you can use AptPlus to install Programs. You can run Many Windows APPS if you have Wine installed. The Graphics on Symphony are a work in progress, but pleasing to say the least...
