I got vista running on my dual-core mini. It looks great and all, but I can't find much different from xp. All in all, it was a waste of many hours. It looks great, and is a free version of windows
, but it is painfully slow, and just trying to install anything took forever. Maybe it is because I have IG, maybe because I only have 512 MB of ram, but it is sooo slow, I cannot stand it. But the most annoying part of using vista is that it is a total space hog. The base OS took up almost 8 GB of space, and vista seems to grow, after just booting it up and opening the internet, my partition went from 12 GB free (20 GB before vista install) to 11 GB, then after I install Office, it is now at 9 GB. I don't know how Dell will afford to put this in new computers?!
Please excuse me for a poorly written paragraph on all my dislikes of Vista, but that thing is a hog! My nonexistant
graphics card scored better than anything else in my system
! How dare it score better than my CoreDuo!?!
Oh well, it is still windows
