It was time for me to have a look at Vista, as it is already set free and seen in the wild on new PCs. So I installed it on my workstation to see what this new miracle can do. The install went smooth and there were not many undetected devices left to worry about.
I was able to get online soon and deactivate all the eyecandy stuff to get at least an idea of performance.
New concepts, new eyecandy, new features – The ideas behind Vista are looking good but there are also things I do not understand like the ‘are you sure that you want to do an administrative thing’ question. In example – if I am trying to change the IP adress of the box I am sure that I want to do so.
But this is are only my first subjectiv impressions…
