The report that SATA performance on Mac Pros is improved in RC1 should make a lot of people happy. Can others confirm?

Surely the opposite of 'The Mac likes Vista' is 'The Mac doesn't like Vista'.

And then, conversely, Vista wouldn't like the Mac.

I guess he meant "the reverse is true, too"

Although this is good news to hear, I still don't give a crap about Vista. It's still behind the times, except for maybe it's user interface. I won't be buying Vista any time soon, unless I absolutely need it, which isn't very likely.

And thus you show how little you know about the undercarriage of Vista. Vista is to Windows as OS 10.0 was to Mac OS and just as buggy.

So does this mean I will never get my HD's to work properly without making my own install disk or buying Vista? I was kinda hoping to see it fixed in a boot camp update or Leapord, wonder what the chances of that are now?

The Mac may like Vista but the Macintosh Drivers sure as heck don't.

I had no audio

Luckily the wireless driver and I guess video drivers were already installed when I upgraded from XP. I've since reinstalled XP.

One thing that bothered me about RC1 was the amount of time it took to install.
