Zero_Infiniti Posted January 28, 2007 Report Share Posted January 28, 2007 Now, someone mentioned networking, and said it was a pain in the ass. Well, not in my experience. I've had to transfer some files to/from my XP laptop, and the only problems I ever had were on the laptop. One thing to note: vista defaults to using WORKGROUP as the network name, instead of MSHOME, which may confuse some. But I'd say the networking is the biggest improvement over XP so far, and I have no idea what kind of problems you might have with it. windows xp professional i thought defaulted to WORKGROUP too...it seems like anyone with networking problems seems to be running xp home edition... anyway, cool read pylon. though i can agree with others here that my system isn't requiring or desperately needing me to go out and pay $300 to overtax it beyond its specs (my comp's barely compatible). granted if i buy a new computer in the next few years that'll run it, sure i'll buy it with the machine. i do think that waiting a little while to see how it runs on the market would do some good too. i remember when xp first came out and my dad was so pissed cause things like printer drivers didn't install and other things didn't work correctly right outta the box. but now the thing runs perfect. i don't expect this OS to be perfect right away, but hopefully it will prove to be sufficient when they work the first few bugs out. i look forward to using it, whenever i get a machine that'll run it.
