Vista asking too much

Microsoft Windows Vista…. is the latest buzz word in the Technology world. For the past few years it always been in the news be it, for its funky user interfaces or comments about copying Tiger OS or its hyped file system and Powershell.

Personally Vista has been a disappointment for me. Look below for minimum requirements and you will figure out that your old PC cannot support it.

  • 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 GB of system memory
  • 40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space
  • Support for DirectX 9 graphics with:
    • WDDM Driver
    • 128 MB of graphics memory (minimum)
    • Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware
    • 32 bits per pixel
  • DVD-ROM drive
  • Audio Output
  • Internet access.

Vista is asking too much and for that jazzy user interface i would be better off installing a free Tiger OS theme rather than shelling out 30000 odd bucks for a new pc and vista.

Indians appear to be becoming less risk-averse. Indians are becoming more adventurous-from the size of their home and car loans, to their choice of jobs, to the way they live their lives.

Thanks to a inspiring six-week long ‘India Poised’ campaign by the Times of India, Indians feel “Its Time to Fly”

Awesome anthem for the India Poised Campaign
