Default Vista RC1

HHmmmmm not to bad i say...

Iv been playing with it for a few min.

It runs very well on my main PC.

Memory used: 523MB Startup.
Processes: 41

Its not to bad, i haven't changed any settings yet either.

I mean i do have 2GB of memory so thats why its running so well. and Dual Core AMD X64 helps also



Heres a pic of what BC looks like. and other apps / tools

I think I'll stick to my XP Media Center Edition for at least a year. Let the inevitable screwups in the new OS get fixed.
