Not bad. We’ve installed Vista on many computers already and have noticed seamless upgrades from Windows XP Home and Professional. The viewing experience and navigation is georgous. Yes, it does remind us of the Mac interface, but there is something more glass-like or translucent about the windows of Vista that seams a little different or more extreme on this new operating system.
Of course, with a few new features come some glitches. Here are some pitfalls to watch out for:
-1GB RAM is recommended. Some computers running 512MB, although the minimum recommended amount of RAM, do run slowly after the Vista upgrade
-ZIP compression is done internally through Windows Vista so there is no need to buy Winzip or another compression utility. We have seen the extraction process take long on some systems and no rhyme or reason has been shown why even with a lot of RAM.
-Windows XP Professional cannot be upgraded to Windows Vista Home or Home Premium. XP Pro can only be upgraded to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
Please feel free to consult with us if you need further upgrade help or support with Microsoft Vista. Vista is recommended, but you just need to be aware of some factors before you take the step.
