Ok my computer runs like crap with that OS. I've got 512MB of ram, the CPU in my sig and a 6200TC. I get the "glass effect" which is actually pretty cool but I need a **** load more ram lol.

update....

Vista works, but it's very slow. I've gotten a few BSOD's, and it takes 15 minutes to boot up

Also, Internet Explorer is a joke on it, I like IE6 better.

I guess I will have to check out Vista Beta.... I thought I read in a review at Tom's Hardware that the Aero Effect has been disabled in the Beta.... I could be wrong...

Personally, the best OS from windows I saw was 2000 Pro... XP pro I consider to be about equal to 2000 Pro... I don't see what all the hype about Vista is.... a polished gold-plated turd is still a turd... I guess I will just have to see for myself what the hype is about.
