Versions of Windows Vista aka Longhorn.. Must read

Recommended Posts

If you've been wondering why Windows Vista has taken a long time to reach Beta 1' date=' we can now tell you why: there are seven separate editions of Vista headed your way. OK, that's not the reason for the delay, but how else do you introduce that many OS versions, without invoking Snow White & friends? Join me know as I romp through the various editions, many of which you'll see are just barely differentiated.[/quote']

Interesting..

are those the real ones?

The final SKU's are not final until MSFT announces them.  Ultimate is rumored to replace Media Center Edition.  I'm betting there will be home, corp and media center editions.  I don't know why the feature set in corp wouldn't work in a small biz network.

RAM: 2GB is the ideal configuration for 64-bit Vista, we're told. Vista 32-bit will work ideally at 1GB, and minimum 512. However, since 64-bit is handling data chunks that are double the size, you'll need double the memory, hence the 2GB. Nigel mentions DDR3 - which is a little odd, since the roadmap for DDR3, on Intel gear at least, doesn't really kick in until 2007.

HDD: SATA is definitely the way forward for Vista, due, Microsoft tells us, to Native Command Queueing. NCQ allows for out of order completions - that is, if Vista needs tasks 1,2,3,4 and 5 done, it can do them in the order 2,5,3,4,1 if that's a more efficient route for the hard drive head to take over the disk. This leads to far faster completion times.

thats all i could find...  :cry: and im too sick to look hard

yeah i think you should be good.. wouldnt expect graphics drivers to be that great for some time until vista has been out for a while.. I doubt that the gamers will move over to vista for quite a while until all of the driver issues are resolved..

The best operating system ever offered for a personal PC, optimized for the individual. Windows Vista Ultimate Edition is a superset of both Vista Home Premium and Vista Pro Edition, so it includes all of the features of both of those product versions, plus adds Game Performance Tweaker with integrated gaming experiences, a Podcast creation utility (under consideration, may be cut from product), and online

It's not about the graphics people! I've been reading online and off about Vista. It seems like they're trying to improve the graphics more than anything. I think the transparent windows are cool and all, but cant M$ concentrate more on the security and stability more?  Do they really need to release a completely new OS every 5 or so years?
