PART 1

The reivew is finally done. And pretty much at the same that Windows Vista RTMs… I have been carefully following the development of Windows Vista since I first became aware of what was then known as Longhorn back around 2000. Always eager to try new technical gadgets and software I was trying to get a hold of early versions of the system, although joining up for MSDN or similar communities was something I considered too expensive for something I was doing just for fun. I have to admit that I got a hold of early version like 4015 through bittorents, and did try them out but only for very short periods of time. They were nowhere stable or compatible enough for anything else than a peak at something that might come along. Well it is now October 2006 and Windows Vista RC1 became available to the general public in September. Living in the Middle East with a meager dial up phone connection certainly means that patience is a virtue, but downloading something like the Beta 2 or RC 1 is just out of the question. Luckily there are ADSL connected internet cafés around, so I was eventually able to download the image and burn it to a DVD. I set up my DELL Inspiron 9100 Laptop with a third empty partition, inserted the DVD and restarted the machine in order to install this new version of the OS. Before I continue I want to state that I am aware that there are now newer versions of Vista out there. Having just spent a long time in the internet café to download this version when 5728 became available I did not feel like doing it again, and besides my experience with this version is so good that I am already using it as my primary OS. In part 1 I will take a look how my installment of the OS went. I will delve further into the Windows Experience Index and hardware and software compatibility, and then I will look at some of the included applications in this version of Windows Vista.

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce
a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
