Well this weekend i dual booted windows xp and vista... i used this website to help me out: http://www.lifehacker.com/software/t...sta-179906.php
So far everything is working well.. but
I have the following games:
HalfLife2- Counterstrike:Source - Day of Defeat
Hitman Blood Money
Bf2142 beta and demo
and many many more...
all of them were slower on vista, and half of them wouldnt even let me connect to servers because my OS wasnt supported
Whenever i played a game it would seem that i didnt have enough ram, i mean the game would skip and lagg whenever i got into a jet or started running in a new area
I mean im getting Vista primarily for gaming and DX10. If my older games wont work well on vista then im not sure if im interested in getting rid of XP...
Besides gaming vista is awesome, i mean it looks so cool and seems to be extremly stable, whenever a process or something freezes, ive always been able to cntrl-alt-del out of it.
It looks cool too, it seems so professional and "crisp"
My favorite part of Windows Vista is the speech recognition.. omg its awesome, its so cool... the hassel is training the speech recognition to your voice by reading long boring sentences..
It can recognise most peoples voice, but you have to talk sorta bland in order for it to register accuratly...
theirs also another feature that i love, the bass boost. You can very easily turn up the bass of your music/games
Vista looks cool, but its not worth $400..
I also dont like the new handicap feature they are putting on it only making you able to use the key twice.. this means everytime you change a motherboard or whatever, u have to pay another $150-400 to get the OS (this will only lead to more hacking)
Games, well vista has the potential. But i dont see it yet. Hopefully in the final release DX10 will live up to its hype. And so will these mystery features microsoft is hiding in the "ultimate" edition
Is this going to be another Millinium failure.. or another big success, only time will tell.
