Last weekend, I installed a (legal!) version of Windows Vista Business.
I had the beta 1 and 2 on my system, and the beta 2 especially convinced me. Didn’t even look at the RC1 or RTM version.
So I chose the Business edition. I first thought I would go for the Home Premium, but that doesn’t come with Remote Desktop or IIS; bummer. Luckily the price tag isn’t as high as the Ultimate edition.
Installation went smoothly. Only my D-Link PCI wireless adapter couldn’t be installed automagically, but the old XP drivers on the manufacturer CD did the trick (even though they pop up error boxes).
Finally, a modern version of Windows. If they would have been one year earlier, they would have had the positive reviews instead of Apple’s OS X. Now everyone’s yelling Vista doesn’t have any real improvements (sigh), just because we’re all used to fancy GUIs, desktop sidebars, indexed search and the like.
Anyway. I’m enjoying this OS, and without the much ‘hyped’ performance drops might I add.
