Ok here is my little story. I have a PC as well as this Powerbook. Its not cutting edge its a Dell Dimension with a P4 2.66 Ghz , 1 MB of Ram, brand new Nvidia Geforce graphics card and 200 Mb hard drive. Basically its not totally out of the ark yet. I joked with a family member no way would I buy Vista but maybe somebody would spend the money for me. This was not a hint but guess what I got gift wrapped today Windows Vista Home Premium Upgrade. After making sure to back up the drive with Drive Image 7 In I blundered. Well guess what installation stopped almost immediately and it told me to uninstall Nero 6 reloaded, Drive Image 7, Diskeeper 8, and NOD32. Ok the first 3 are ulilities and a wee bit old fair enough but NOD32 was bang up to date Anyway a bit of add/remove programs fun I start again. I get more messages this time it would install BUT my Scanner Epson perfection 1250 had no vista drivers, my version of Java was incompatible and worst of all my fancy brand new graphics card with designed for VISTA on the box was not gaurenteed to work properly either Anyways ploughed ahead 2 hours later OK desktop was pretty enough I had to admit, hey I might be able to whip this thing to my liking. However when I started to really use it. external cardreader on my Epson Stylus 915 , no driver no workey Steganos Safe hung when closing a drive Palm desktop did the same at end of a sync Vista search did not seem to want to search mail or contacts in my version of Outlook 2002. Ok its not the latest version but google search and Yahoo desktop search both managed it fine Basically If I want to run Vista I will have to fork out a forture on new software and maybe new hardware also. Typing this as something to do as Drive Image sends Vista to the land of Wind and Ghosts.
