Any 2-socket system. AMD's 4x4 uses two different processors in two different sockets on the motherboard. The other Vista OSes don't support this kind of hardware configuration. Single-socket systems, like everything besides 4x4, will work with all versions of Vista.

id honestly wait till the program is out for awhile anyways...knowing microsoft its gonna take 6 months before the major glitches are fixed, not much software is going to be compatable and ive allready heard problems with printer interfaces not being recognised. people complaine about the blue screen of death with xp but thats acctaully one of the few things i dont have a problem with on my computer....i wouldnt upgrade to something that hassnt been fully torn apart by consumers.

And you cannot pirate Vista. Microsoft severely cripples any pirated version of the software. Unless you want to never go on the internet or install any security upgrades (imagine XP without SP1 and SP2), you won't be able to get it for free. Sucks for you, huh?



haha thats what they said about windows xp!they were like ohhh no noone will ever be able to burn this cd lmao then came image burning..hahha software will always catch up with microsoft then can only stay a step ahead for a lil bit...just think about it mircrosoft how many people you think they have working for them?a few thousand ok amazing then think about crackers?millions vs microsoft i believe the millions will win

The problem isn't burning Vista, it's using it. As soon as you connect to the internet, Vista will call back to Microsoft HQ and check to see if the version you're using is authentic. If its not, then its crippled. Crippled as in no mouse. Just an example.

Lol. Keep dreaming, but I've talked to people who have Majors in Computer Science and I'm more likely to listen to them than you, a 16 year old nerd who's parents buy him everything he wants. Go ahead and try it fanboy, you'll see sooner or later. The rest of us don't have $400 to waste on an OS.
