#  Thursday, June 1, 2006

I decided to take the plunge and try running Vista on a daily basis. Thus far the following casualties must be reported:

  • Matrox P650 PCIe. No drivers, thus no dual head. Sorry Matrox. In more than ten years this is now the first time that my machine has no Matrox graphics card inside.
  • PDFCreator. For some reason the setup msi dies during installation, as well as during the subsequent uninstallation. Too bad.
  • Daemon Tools. On the first try, it didn't work. Maybe I'll give it another shot.

Given my previous experiences on my two laptops, it really turns out that the graphics drivers (or lack of) are the #1 issue for getting productive with Vista.

Let's see how long it takes until I hit a snag that makes me return to XP. Copying Application Data stuff to Vista was already quite "interesting" because Firefox and Thunderbird store their settings in Roaming and not Local.

Yes, I have a full install running, following order: Vista 5456, VS05 Pro, MSDN, Vista SDK, .NET FW 3.0.
