Even tho Linux distros need some work, they are better for the user than Vista will be. For vista you need a whole new computer, Linux will run on your old 486.

My 2 cents

An interesting article can be found here, which definately does not describe Windows Vista as the way forward.

Vista is not a way forward it is just a new look.

Vista is full of flaws. Here are the biggest ones.
1) From what I know it will only work w/ 64 bit achitechure
2) Requires High amounts of Ram.
3) Requires alot of graphic processing power.

If you wanted to run it on a computer youve had for awhile just forget it. So far Im guessing only the last year and a half's will be able to work it semi decently. I think they reccomend 512 Mb RAM so you'd better have 1Gb of it

Actually, I believe the flawish, buggy, ridiculous Windows Vista is the BETA one. From what I hear and have researched, the new one will require a modern computer with a mediocre amount of system resources, but it won't require a brand-new "mini-supercomputer". Also, Windows Vista is supposed to be much more secure and supped up than any of the previous version. For a seldom occasion, I am supporting and encouraging Microsoft because they've been working hard to fortify their Operating Systems and have been doing a moderately good job; however, I do wish they would end the nuissance BETAs (the BETAs directed to compete in the "Toolbar & Search Engine Wars") and put Windows OneCare back into BETA because it is by no means ready to compete against even Norton let alone Kaspersky or NOD32.

Lol, i would like to quote more of those replyes, but i'm too lazy to do so...
First, yes, Vista is still a Beta.
1Gb of ram? not even close, sorry... at least 3 or 4 to get full potential.
Graphics? you would have to invest like $500 to get an OK for the graphics.

My brother haves Vista. His specs are:
Athlon 64 Dual Core 4GHz, 2Gb ram memory (DDR only), a NVidia Gforce 4 7800 with 256 mb graphic card, and 250 Gb of HD (Overall Specs)... pretty much, dont you think?

The problem is that for Vista, he don't meet even half of the requirements for full potential.. he gets a 3 rating out of 7 I think.

But, if you can get a good rating, you will have a nice OS. It haves a lot of things that makes it very usable, but again, i don't know it very well yet, because its still a beta...

here is what MS has to say about what you need via the "Beeb"

The minimum means that the operating system will run but some new features will be disabled. Recommended means that this is what is needed to get the most basic configuration of the whole package working

notice the 15 gig space requirement for the uber-bloat
(I have a 8gig HD :huh: )
from what I've read they have cut out a lot of the "stuff" that would
have made it worth while. (hard to say that with a straight face)
just to get it ready to release before 2010

If you want to see whether your computer is Vista capable, there is a tool that you can download here:

Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor Beta


Note: It's a beta tool, so don't use it to make upgrades to your system. Just use it as a guide. Read the FAQ Here .
