Should yo have the urge to buy this, be patient, there are bugs that need to be worked out. One thing to do, is if you have access to another comp while you are setting up new programs would be good, because you will have to go to different manufacturers web sites and download drivers. at times it has disabled my internet service. Having another comp let me simmply enter the error I read, and fix itFebruary 12, 2007 at 6:07 pm #39691
I installed it on an old Dell I have and it went without a hitch, but I haven’t experimented with all the apps I have yet.
Its a permissions nightmare.February 12, 2007 at 6:21 pm #39694
Oh if its on an old dell, hope you got enough memory, and yeah it’s a night mare, thank god for the different forumsFebruary 12, 2007 at 6:44 pm #39697
all i’m running is vista on it..
it’s an…evaluation version.
It’s basically the same as xp, but it has new plumbing in it.
It is a SUPER resource hog, It’s running with 512mb of Rdram on the dell, but it won’t run the cool visual effects and what not.
and holy shit, the permissions stuff is NUTS!
People, run an antivirus, firewall, and spyware checker, and put a router between you and your net connection.

First we all complain about the security holes in windows and now we complain that they locked it down.
Just more job security for us in the IT world. More documentation, more auditing trails, and more time to build new servers.February 12, 2007 at 8:57 pm #39707CWCCRIDERMember
