blah blah.. *skims over topic*

ok I have vista and I'll admit.. I hated it at first.. but with each patch its getting better ^^

ok here are my specs :P

Intel Core Duo Processor T2250
(1.73 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 2 MB L2 cache)

14.1 WXGA CrystalBrite LCD (yup its a laptop)

Intel Graphics Media Accellerator 950
160 GB HDD
DVD-Super Multi Double layer
(support DVD+R Double Layer/DVD+-RW)
2GB DDR2 (support dual-channel)
802.11a/b/g wireless LAN

so basically.. top of the line laptop atm

cpu usage of VISTA on its own.. generally 6%

of course I havent bothered to get rid of half the crap it came with..

with the exception that i fet a weird error of not beign able to save snapshop when I close fl - and when I open it i have to tell it which vstis are new every time (ugh) it works fine. Better than fine - it works awesome :P

so basically if u have a crap computer i guess vista will work crap on it :P

I have to disagree with just about everything thats been said about vista in this thread. I'm running it on a computer that doesn't even have the minimum requirements to run it and its great. Also, it hasn't effected FL at all, it still works the same as it did on XP. So far the only compatability issue I've encountered is with Apple quicktime. I'd recommend getting it

Reason, VSTs, sibelius and FL definatly work on Vista, I'm running them

Cubase definatly does NOT. Protools I'm not sure about.

If you're getting a new comp soley for music design, wait for the new mac OS to come out then nab a duel core ubermac.

if it aint broke.... dont fix it, XP has so many +'s atm over vista, especially with older programmes.

regardless of whats better or not i love the adage of the challange.

USE WHATEVER TOOLS YOU HAVE AVAILABLE TO YOU.

you can create a masterpiece on an atari st as long as you know what you working with.

bigger is not better. stick to what you know, what you know is safe for the mean time. if you really feel the need to move to the next platform, invest heavily now, or get a half decent set up then invest marginally less later.

I'd invest in XP for now tho, build you pc to be a monster, xp has another 3-5 years left before it's fucked, stick to what you know.
