Windows In an interesting turn of events, Microsoft has said that the current Aero interface in the latest Vista build (the December CTP) is not the final UI, saying: "There are going to be GUI changes in Vista by the time the final release comes." However, not too long ago they claimed the current Aero UI was final. Will the real Microsoft developer please stand up?

To name just a few. My impression of the Vista beta was pretty bad, but maybe I'm just bitter because my Athlon 64 3200 with 1024MB of RAM gets a system score of 2 on the system analyzer in Vista.

Then don't run all the feature of it. It is not all or nothing. Vista was designed to turn off features for hardware that it doesn't support.

Soo... Gig of ram and 64 bit cpu is not enough to run an operating system? Hmm....

This is more than enough to run Vista. I've run it on a 1GHz Duron w/ 512MB RAM.

It's more than enough.

What kind of video card is in the system? That's probably the #1 thing to be looking at with Vista. A GeForce FX5200 maybe? :-P

Not to mention it's beta, it's not clear the analysis code is finished yet, and the are issues with WPF and AMD processors in the current build.
