Windows Vista

Got the 64bit version of Vista Home Premium on the new laptop and am wondering what people's thoughts are on it as an OS. Seems to have got a lot of stick over the years but I remember a good number of people on here saying they'd never had a problem with it.

 

Downloading SP2 as I type (been going three hours and only two more remaining! :rolleyes:) - will that sort out many of the early issues? It already has SP1 on like.

Never had any trouble with it. Looks nice, runs a lot faster than my old PC running XP used to, has some nice features. Only time I ever had a bit of trouble with this laptop is when the RAM failed and that was a hardware problem and nothing to do with the OS.

 

So yeah, had Vista for the last 2 years and haven't seen any reason for the amount of stick it gets.

No problems so far like. Seems pretty much the same as W7 to me, though I wish it booted up as fast.

 

Just use sleep instead of shutting it down. You'll need to shut it down once a week or so for updates but aside from that there should be no problems.

Cool, cheers.
