I decided to use Sunday afternoon for a little chewing 🙂 I took it off Microsoft Windows 7 32Bit Build 6801 🙂 and I let it install on my virtual machine, as well as I set aside 12GB hard disk space and 1GB RAM, Debian Sid host. In general, the installation is quite normal, as well as complete 😆 the installer has the same interface that Windows Vista uses. In general, the installation went relatively quickly, faster than the worms I installed, but not for 3 min as long as Sidux is installed on my machine 😈 Then the first login again in the familiar way on Vista asks for a name and password. And I logged in… hmmm at first glance clean vista with a wider task bar and a little better looking 🙂 on the second third and fourth too Vista is his shit. In general, I did not notice any drastic change in the folders and settings, etc. from the previous version. The vision that is the most- the insignificant stage for the assembly development of the operating system did not excite me much 🙂 The settings, etc. are made in an almost uniform way. I was unpleasantly surprised that there was no VPN support, may appear in the final version because a lot of people in jitsin use VPN networks to connect to their workplace 😉 In general, after about 10 min work managed to give me the wonderful inscription Not Responding while I was reconfiguring the IPs of the link and so I managed to spend 10 minutes then a long troubleshooting wizard started (understandably this is a beta people need to be aware of their bugs) Overall, I liked how it worked in a few very rare moments, managed to reach the limits of CPU power, which I had allocated 2.6Ghz, the frame maintained levels around 350 ~ 600MB, which I think is a lot, given that I am almost no psaukl programs, mainly explorer. I didn't see many programs in the beta, that's why it was of dubious size 2.32 GB although there is an ultimate edition. Overall a little summary the beta is quite unstable unsupported old devices like AC’97 audi emulated with the virtual bus and didn't catch it anyway 2 type of Intel-ski links. Quite cumbersome and heavy it seemed to me that although I did not try it on my normal machine I think we will not see anything who knows how much better than Windows Vista, but there is plenty of time until the final release and the boys from M $ can try 😆 🙄 😈 … Hardly
because I am these days “a little” busy and I don't have time for serious blogs so I'll crack some stats from my block 😉 Overall I think somewhere around 6-7 I started it this month and so far the statistics are as follows
1. For operating systems
Windows XP 66.3%
Windows Vista 15.1%
Ubuntu Linux 14%
Debian Linux 1.7%
Windows Server 2003 1.3%
Mac OS X 0.6%
Overall quite a pleasant surprise is that Ubuntu is a good percentage with quite a bit of worm trail 🙂 the rest is clear
Firefox 3 52.5%
Firefox 2 10.1%
Internet Explorer 6 8%
Internet Explorer 7 7.8%
Internet Explorer 8 3.2%
Here are a few surprises except that the fox splits the darkness 😉 First IE6 is ahead of IE7 strange because definitely the second is better supports everything that separated IE from a nice modern browser and generally hot advice that did not go to the 7th version to do it. The second thing is the presence of netscape, this May they stopped it this spring, if I'm not mistaken. Most likely some spider but who knows. Although the Netscape itself, when they stopped it directly, wanted a window to replace it with FF 🙂 Well, that was a little but oh my heart
Over the weekend I had the big challenge of installing one HP TX 1000 Windows XP and he had Vista installed. Even before I started, I realized that my mission would not be easy, so I inspected the available hardware and saw basically what the machine is armed with. I visited the Hewlett-Packard site and piled on whatever I could., but at least I had drivers for wireless -a and with a wireless router. The reinstallation went quite smoothly and normally, expectedly did not recognize the lan car is still with Nvidia chipset :). I logged in and installed the wireless drivers HD Audio and so far so good 🙂 no surprises everything ok. Then I went to the Nvidia site to download the video driver and chipset to get to know the tape, having previously tried one of my sister's bottoms because she is Nvidia 6100 built-in and it was on the laptop 6150 and I decided, that it will happen. But alas, no reaction. With the driver from the site again too. Hmmm 😈 shit. Then I went straight to the net looking for info and something else hit a nut. At one point I remembered to play Everest to see what info he would steal from me about the video, it turned out to be Nvidia GO 6150 I start again, I enter the site and go to see drivers for the GO series and opa beam only for the 7th series 🙁 Damn (double)!!! I'm starting again by digging through the net, I came across a forum with guys with a problem like mine on other laptops. I tried around 10 link from the given drivers again nut. At one point I wondered if the map is not just Vista addict ма but it was for a while there are no such things, after all, XP is up to date, the OS is not a cat, let's say 98 😉 after some more digging I found a Spanish site where a guy had installed Windows Tablet Edition on a similar laptop Tx 1030 bingo 🙂 generally the differences are in the size of the display, the fingerprint scanner is this. Unfortunately I'm dumb and I didn't keep the link to the site 🙂 So I start pulling a diver for the video at one point I see that it's something quite modified creature and was in some additional packaging installer not the official from Nvidia I think it was something reversed but I can only guess. I didn't check and I don't understand his shit in Spanish. Then I folded the chipset driver, this time it was special, that it was some old hava, and was only for chipsets without graphics drivers. I already had a great working video and lan. I pulled one AMD Trution The driver mainly boils the battery 🙂 and I think that new technology is enough to create insufficient performance of the XP. Super verse left to put the tablet player HP Quick Play some internal stitching that makes you a DVD cover in tablet mode and use the quick buttons on the side of the display 🙂 still the keyboard is pressed by the display 😉 Hmm unpleasant surprise current latest version 3 is supported only for Vista and for XP there is only up to 2.3 I put it nicely 🙂 the program was good enough to inform me about the update that turned out to be on the site of http://www.cyberlink.com/ it turned out to be a real hava with HP 🙂 With a smile on my face I enjoyed the player 🙂 it worked great. There was only a modem which is some kind of Motorola, unfortunately the link on the site of my Spanish benefactor did not work, I dealt with Uncle Google relatively lazily after I asked for details :). I started the reinstallation to 11 and successfully attached to 17 afternoon 🙁 Hell of a long time for such a thing. It turned out to be a lot harder than I thought, but I was satisfied, that I realized that everyone fagots for money and a lot of money. In general, my advice for anyone who has decided to lose the Vista and put on the good old XP is to download all the drivers in advance. If you are not sure for some to check with Everest a hell of a good program for info on your hardware. In any case, he can look on the net to see if he has done it or will he be the laureate.
After finishing work, I enjoyed the full power of the machine. There was no longer the same one to eat a lot of meaningless resources
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:
Today I had to face the half-seated child of M $ Windows Vista(Glista as I say fondly). I don't think he can think of more than Uncle Bill and company. True, this was my first serious contact with Vista, but I'm not a lamer either. The user interface supposedly user friendly is very complicated. While navigating the new environment it took me about 15 min then to set up the internet connection as much more (fortunately he left). Otherwise, people tried to make a beautiful operating system, but maybe that's all. Separately, the laptop I was working on turned off without absolute warning while I was working. His battery really dropped, but he can at least tell me 😉 . His mother finally had another setup to do, but something was wrong and I fucked her. I'm thinking of putting a worm house(to my sister on the computer), to defeat her a little, after all, I have to be ahead of the customers. My personal advice is do not put Vista if you do not absolutely need, the laptop I was working on was some kind of pentium – dual-core, sigurno with gigabyte frames, I did not look at the parameters, It was a brand of iron Toshiba, it worked like my computer with a 700MHz processor. I don't see who is given so much resources just to enjoy some funny air modes that are not so good. I will put a link to my laptop later, which is well below the requirements of Vista, with Beryl plugin to inspire beauty and performance
