I love how everyone talks down on vista. Bigger OS with more features = more resources.

Are school is very tech savvy.

Or computer class gets new computers every 2 years.

Right now we have
P4 3.4Ghz
512mb
FX5200.

My Network Administration is even better they get 5 new pc's every year.

The worst computers in the class have Athlon XP 2400+ 1GB of ram and Radeon 9600.

The ones they just bought are awesome

Core 2 Duo E6400
2GB DDR2-667
X1950 Pro

The Year before that are
AMD 3700+
1GB of RAM
X800GTO

The way our MSDN Academic Alliance software program works is that you need to be a student in computer science, management information systems, computer engineering or some other engineering feild - which I am mechanical.

Then you gotta apply for it, you can download online or check out the discs.

Right now it appears that Windows Vista Business is available for download.
