Privacy, Security, Encryption A new report from Symantec security researchers contends that Microsoft's much-awaited Vista operating system could harbor a range of vulnerabilities that will make it less secure than previous iterations of Windows. According to research published July 18 by Symantec, a number of Vista's software components, specifically a handful of protocols related to its redesigned networking technologies, could become security loopholes if Microsoft does not fix the problems or ensure that the product is configured appropriately to hide the glitches when it is shipped.

i hate to tell you guys this also... but 1gb? I have 3 test machines with 512 and they run fine... 1 doesnt use glass because it doesn't have a dx9 card but works just fine... they all especially run great on the latest build...

99% of performance problems in the betas has been attributed to poorly performing and rushed drivers from ATI/NVIDIA/INTEL... which microsoft is trying to force them to fix ASAP...

Yes 1gb does feel nicer and 2gb even nicer than that... but the fact of the matter is it was the same story in XP.. more ram = more smooth feeling OS... its nothing new...

And for those bi*ching about 1gb... give me a break stop whining skip burger king for a few days and go get a gig ... its 50$ my god can we stop whining
