Windows Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference might be over, but that doesn't mean news about Windows 7 suddenly stops coming in. We have news for you on the elusive MinWin kernel, which created a sort of crazy hype a year ago, and Rafael Rivera found a way to enable the new taskbar on the pre-beta build handed out to PDC attendees. This build, carrying number 6801, didn't have the latest taskbar revamp - you needed a newer build for that, build 6933, which hasn't been released to the public.

600 mb for just the OS. "Not bad."

But Vista is _NOT_ for everybody. You always have to check your application compatibility. It is crazy.

For example: I "upgraded" a architect friend of mine to Vista. She got XP and Vista with her 1GB RAM Core Duo Laptop. So I upgraded the RAM to 2GB and installed Vista SP1.

I just assumed Apps would work... Well most of the stuff she had was not Vista ready. AutoCad 9 and other stuff with Dongle copy protection _WILL NOT_ fly with Vista. No Chance. You have to buy new versions or better solution:

Go back to XP.

Conclusion: Proprietary vendors mostly suck.
