Well, everybody seems to tell you to go with a BitTorrent client, but the "download philosophy" is different with such a network and .torrent shortcuts which you have to retrieve manually for each file (even if there are good trackers). Since you were an eMule user, the best answer for you would be... aMule (which stands for "all-platform Mule". It is an emule clone and works just as eMule, on the same networks with the same .met servers). Unlike eMule, aMule is...
Apparently GMA 950 is compatible with all the effects of Aero Glass You can see a video of a PC with GMA 950 running Aero Glass user interface from a Windows Vista build, pretty well!
Do you have a Mac Mini? Memory allocation varies with GMA 950. Apple says Mac OS X allocates 80 MB minimum to the GMA 950 from the main memory, and more if needed up to 250 MB max (Intel says 64MB min and 224 MB max). Have you downloaded and tested the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor program?
There is a biased information from Intel about the "Vista-Capable" class computers, because the Aero GUI is not required to achieve this minimum level qualification. So depending on its components, a "Vista-Capable PC" could be able to get XP GUI at best, and another could be able to display Aero with some translucency. But we have good news according to PC World (March 07, 2006): "Acer laptop with Intel's 945GM Express Chipset and integrated Intel GMA 950 graphics...
We can officially boot into Windows XP SP2 on Mac Intel thanks to Boot Camp. And early 2007, we will be able to install Windows Vista. But Windows Vista is pretty hungry: - the minimum configuration ("Vista-Capable") needs at least a 800 MHz x86 CPU, 512 MB of RAM, a DX9 compatible GPU, and 15 GB of available space on your HDD. - the recommended requirement ("Vista-Premium") in order to display the full effects with "Aero Glass" graphical user interface: at least...
OK for the dual-link limitation of DVI. But don't forget HDMI is the only one which carries audio along video, neither DisplayPort nor UDI will carry audio. Just video.Here you can find a big comparative table between DisplayPort, LVDS, DVI, and HDMI (but not UDI).
OK, so I'm wrong on this one. Apologies. I read this from Engadget (but indeed they are wrong): "it'll not be backward compatible with with DVI / VGA (ouch), it'll have wire-line encryption developed by Philips -- that's not compatible with HDCP (double ouch)" Engadget didn't read correctly their source: DisplayPort is not compatible with VGA nor HDMi with HDCP, but it is with DVI-D w/o DRM. BTW here is a diagram of DisplayPort:
VESA DisplayPort and Intel UDI are different and compete on the same ring to replace both DVI and HDMI. Apple is behind UDI (Unified Display Interface) promoted by Intel ans supported by both ATI and NVIDIA (the LCD HDTV leader Samsung too, and LG-Philips, Silicon Image Inc, National Semiconductor, Analogix Semiconductor, FCI Connect, Foxconn, Redmere Technologies, JAE Electronics, and Sure-Fire Electronics, THine Electronics). Version 0.8 of the UDI specification...
It is very possible Intel will keep the name "Core Duo" and spill it accross all versions, ie the Core Solo T1300 and the Core Duo T2600 are Yonah, so: - Merom @ 1.83 Ghz would be "Core Duo T5600" (L2 2MB and FSB 667) - Merom @ 2.33 Ghz would be "Core Duo T7600" (L2 4MB and FSB 667) - Conroe @ 1.60 GHz would be "Core Duo E4200" (L2 2MB and FSB 800) - Conroe @ 2.40 GHz would be "Core Duo E6600" (L2 4MB and FSB 1067) - Woodcrest @ 3.33 GHz would be "Core Duo E8000 Xeon" (L2...
Following the disparition of the publication of M3 data set March 20, 2006... The White House would be on the point of printing 2 trillion dollars secretly (April 6, 2006) : News Flash: Dollar Tanking? The Bush Administration may be destroying the US dollar If true, the Bush administration will have a short period of time to "act" (whatever this means) before the massive cash flood to the whole market is publicly discovered.
