Vista is coming are you ready

I built a computer for my son as a Christmas present and I had a choice should I put on Umbuntu (my first choice) he didn’t want it. I could have  paid $100 for XP but that was going to stretch my Christmas budget or I could have paid Microsoft $10 for Vista RC1 (release candidate 1) . It seemed obvious to me to try the Vista.

I built it on an 5 year old Pentium 4 machine that I bought at an auction for  $60. I put a big hard drive in it and 1 gig of RAM. I used the video card out of my sons old computer.

The computer worked well the only glitch is he had one month to register it and it shut itself down so that is an issue that I have to deal with this week.

I’ll let you know how it goes
