Windows As someone who uses Windows Vista practically daily, I've always wondered where all the negativity in the media comes from. Sure, Vista isn't perfect (as if any operating system is), but I just don't see where all the complaints are coming from. It runs just fine on my old (6 years) machine, all my software and hardware is compatible, and it's stable as a rock. Microsoft has been wondering the same thing, and after a little test, they may have found out why people seem to dislike Vista so much.

First off, you are using an outdated version of Ubuntu. The 8.04 is called, "HardyHeron" is the latest, and it has two helper for finding Nvidia drivers.

I suggest you install 8.04 and than go to System, Administration, Synaptic Package Manager and type Nvidia in the search box. This will allow you to install a program that installs the correct Nvidia driver. I can understand your confusion. You are not used to such an easy answer. After Vista, many are confused and bewildered!
