    reading other forums and places this is up at it seems 32bit is running good..but a few issues with 64bit right now but this is also BETA so.. I guess we shall see it soon being pushed official on windows updates.


    Microsoft have released two beta hotfix`s for windows vista. It is not recommended to install these on a production machine because they are beta (Windows Vista 64-bit)

    This “Vista Performance and Reliability Pack” claims that it “resolves a number of individual issues which may be affecting some computers running Windows Vista.” Apparently this is using data gathered from the Automatic Error Reporting system built into the OS, which goes to show that all those annoying pop-ups are helping.

    The additions that we’re all most excited about in the office are improvements to large file and directory transfer speeds, reliability and performance increases with newer graphics cards and increased video card driver compatibility.
