A further update on Vista.
Last night I installed Vista onto my ageing laptop (P4 1.8, 1GB RAM). I used build 5384 (effectively Beta 2)
My initial comment: If I'd wanted a Mac I'd have bought a Mac! Vista is very clunky, and it's hard to find the things you need. Even the menu in Explorer is gone, unless you enable "Classic Menu". Let's hope things improve before RTM!
ANYWAY, off my soapbox.
I was able to install Visual Studio, and I was able to install the VS service pack. HOWEVER I could not install the Software Development Kit. As such, I am currently UNABLE to develop BRU under Vista. Hopefully this will change by the time Vista is released.
I stuck with Vista for another couple of hours.....then removed it and went back to XP! I've seen enough of Vista for the time being.....
PS Have a read of Paul Thurrott's comments here
. They are perfect!
