Who is Running Windows Vista?

I was going to write a post about the lack of blog visitors running Microsoft Windows Vista. But, now I have had my first visitor who is running Windows Vista. One of the statistics that the Site Meter for this blog keeps track of is operating system. Until this week, I hadn't noticed any blog visitors running Microsoft Windows Vista. I know that Windows Vista hasn't been widely released, since most versions of Vista won't be available until the end of this month. But I do know that many beta versions of Vista exist, and the business version of Windows Vista has already been released.

On a related note, I recently purchased a new desktop computer. I held off on my buying decision until the computer manufacturer (Hewlett-Packard) agreed to provide an upgrade to Microsoft Windows Vista. Currently, the computer runs Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, and I'm supposed to receive Windows Vista Home Premium after the general release later this year. I only have to pay for the shipping charges.

I figure that you are running a beta or other pre-release version of Windows Vista. Have you noticed any rendering problems or performance degradation, as a result of the upgrade? I'm looking forward to getting Microsoft Windows Vista for my computer.

I am running the final version with no problems -- it runs pretty well. I recommend more than 1gb ram, however. I am still waiting on a driver update from nvidia as well. I lost my multi-monitor support with Vista until they sort out the driver. I'm willing to wait tho.
