I was looking for some non-windows machines for my development team. My development team all use Ubuntu. As hard as I tried, I couldn't really find anything pre-built that didn't have windows on it. I really don't like the idea that I will buy machines with windows on them just to have them formatted and have linux installed over them. And what really gets me is that windows will add to the price of the machine (at time when I'm trying to cut down on all my department's spendings).
I was …

Now since I reinstalled Vista 32bit version and its up and running, lets go through what works what don’t.

There I was sitting and working and minding my own business when I heard bunch of noise outside of my office. So I took my headphones off to tune in to the conversation. One of the developers has gone out and bought Windows Vista Ultimate edition and was talking about installing it and trying it out. I have always tried out all of the Windows flavors since 3.1 as soon as they came out and even did beta runs for NT 4, XP, 2000, 2003 and even Vista. But for some reason after installing and running beta 2 of Windows Vista, I wasn’t very impressed. But when they were talking about installing Vista, I myself got curious to find out how good/bad is the released version. So I …
