About Me

A 17 year old taking his first tentative steps into the world of blogging. In my first year, its been up and down, from the slow first months to a busy time around the one year anniversary.

Vista- One update every two hours

Last week my dad ordered a brand new computer from Dell, complete with a 2.4 Ghz dual-core AMD processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 256 Mb Nvidia Geforce graphics card, a 320 GB hard drive, all in one printer and a 19" ultra sharp LCD screen. And to top it all off, we got a free version of Windows Vista Professional. Not bad for the £800 price tag, hey?

Well, the computer arrived yesterday morning, and we had it up and running by the evening. The shipping notes said that everything was installed and ready out of the box, yet as soon as we booted up the machine and plugged in the network cable, there was an instant message saying the PC had to be restarted, as updates were installed. I did so, as I thought 'this is the first startup, so thats okay'. But then as soon as we restarted the machine, more notifications popped up on the side of the screen. This has been the case every time the machine has been turned on, and internet forums say that this will happen for the next 6 months!

I have to say, I was a bit skeptical when my Dad asked me whether it was worth getting Vista. The only reason we got it was because it was free with the computer. On first impression, it alls seems really good: visually, it is leagues ahead of XP. The colours are more vivid, and Microsoft has obviously taken a leaf out of Apple's books- they have included gadgets on the sidebar, which are amazingly similar to 'widgets'. But the problems lie beneath the attractive surface. It seems as if Windows have rushed the operating system; there are compatibility issues with printers, speakers etc, and I have already mentioned the constant updates.

I know its fairly recent, but there shouldn't be this many issues this early on. Have many of you out there updated to Vista from XP, and if you have, what do you think?
