Agh!! Vista is driving me nuts. Yes, I am a Windows and Linux admin, so I need to work with Microsoft OS’s as well. I have been test driving Vista for the past few months. At first, it wasn’t so bad. But as real work needs to get done I get very frustrated with its performance.
Example, I was running Fedora as the main OS on the machine I run VMware Server on. I could run about four or five VMs in the background and you tended to forget they were even running in the background. Now I am running Vista with VMware Server. Ugh! Even running *one* VM is painful! Just to start it and the OS starts hitting the disk heavily. Once it gets running it isn’t too bad – but keep in mind I am running *one* VM compared to the four or five I used to run.
