I am installing Windows Vista - I may be gone some time !

If my blogging is a bit erratic over the next few days, please be patient. I am switching to Vista and guess there are bound to be problems.

Wish me luck.

Update : Now working - Everything is fine and dandy. Aren't Microsoft a wonderful organisation ? (note that was sarcasm)

Mac's don't work with my school stuff and you can't play Medieval Total War 2 on a Mac !

You fool! :)

Why would anyone switch to Vista?
Stick with XP, at least it works and all your software/peripherals work with it!

The trick is, so I've been told, to go for the 32 bit version and avoid the 64 bit version.

I have to upgrade from XP due to some major problems and, as I have recently found out, problems with validating my OEM version of XP which has been transferred from machine to machine every time it has an upgrade.

PCLinuxOS 2007 is doing everything I ask it to, pretty much straight out of the box. Better by quite some way than the Ubuntu distro I had previously tried. Oh, and it's free as on both costs nowt and as in open source.

Yes, definitely avoid the 64-bit version. Even more compatibility problems...
