I've seen the future

Many of you have had a chance to get up close and personal with Vista through the betas, but I hadn't seen it in action until today when I spent a couple of hours with some guys from Microsoft and I'm really impressed: it looks great, I particularly like the way it handles photographs and I'm really looking forward to getting it on my machine.

"a couple of hours with some guys from Microsoft"

and you're all enthused. Give me their names.

Steady on Kate!

From what you have seen ( of the flavours available) will Home Premium be the likely winner for home types like me, it does appear as if the ultimate will have bells a whistles which some may never use.

The vast mjority of Home users will opt for the Home Premium version of Vista. Many of them will have no say in the matter anyway, because that's the version that will be preloaded on their new computer.

Enthusiasts might be tempted by the Vista Ultimate version.

Thanks for that FE.

Any idea on the spec. of the machine?

  Kate B 14:24 PM 26 Nov 06

My machine, Powerless? *prepares to boast* It's got an AMD FX-55, 2GB Ram, 2x7900GTX in SLI, 2x10,000rpm Raptors in Raid 0 on an Asus A8N-SLI deluxe mobo, watercooled. It's 18 months old now and still the knees of the bees. Runs like a dream and steams through anything demanding without breaking sweat.

Obviously a PC World special offer.
