Beauty or Productivity

My sister's operating system went awry yesterday (Windows XP) and it was a good time to trick her into putting on Vista. I'm complaining about so many resources that I don't really have , I want to see her a little closer. And well, let's start with the installation. Initially boot with some new Boot Loader. Then came a beautiful graphic installation… and so far so good. Then he asked me to choose the type of Vista death I want to install – I think they were 7 possible choices. I immediately chose Ultimate because I heard it was the best, but if I were some lamer quite I would wonder 🙂 a black dot. Then a coin came to choose the hard drive I want to format and put the vista accordingly… damn it took me around 10 minutes to figure out how it works again, another black dot. OK going through this started the installation went smoothly and relatively quickly 🙂 . The first unpleasant impression was, that a familiarization of the hardware began just before entering the OS. It took a long time, but it was really impressive, grabbed all my hardware(HD Audio и Nvidia VGA и LAN) so I didn't have to install additional drivers, and the site does not work for the manufacturer at all ASROK . I will download drivers anyway just to get the site up and running, I don't know how much I can count on these built-in ones. OK, all the installations have already passed, God, how difficult the configuration is 🙂 a hell of a lot of menus and submenus. The links to other menus are also confusing, at one point I wonder if I see a link or just text, a few black dots. So for about an hour of play I managed to overlay the basic software and play a little with Vista. The design is really decent, and the air regime and only praised – it is nothing more than a few effects – one color dot for design and a lot for naughty advertising. It's time to say how it is with system resources. Well, then it's a computer 2800+ 64in Sempron , 512MB frame DDR 400 with 80GB hard and Nvidia video 6100 (built into the bottom I also gave 64MB of RAM). On these resources Vista had taken up about 320MB of RAM and did not fall under them whether the air mode is on or not. The CPU is supposed to work around 10% and each time a new program is launched it starts to hold 100% for quite some time. During the installation, the Vista had about 11 GB of hard disk space. In my opinion, this is a lot for an operating system, but on setra and harsvala to enjoy health.
Later that day I came across a 600Mhz Celeron 128SD Ram and some video built-in Intel, but I don't remember what exactly for the reinstallation. And I started to simplify it with XP. With a few tricks I made XP go really well without sinking and most importantly the action was preserved quickly. I managed to push his hard disk space below 900MB, the frame used it around 80 MB and the processor I did not see to rise above 85% user. True it looks like 98 but again in this case a better compromise with the vision than with the machine. At one point the two machines behaved in the same way 🙂 only with the difference that one is several tens of times supposedly better than the other.
Instead of a conclusion I will say:

  • If you are a beginner, do not start the installation yourself (let someone who knows sweat)
  • If you have less than 1GB of RAM, there is no point in installing Vista unless you want to play only of solitaire
  • If, after all, nothing has convinced you in my words so far – shake your head!
