Your Opinion: What vista/longhorn beta?

Post by Dr Eggman »

Ok, i'm finally getting around to installing a new OS on my dell, it has ~380 ram, 18 GB free ~1.2GHz processor (intel) so what version of longhorn/vista should i run? XP is too boring

PS i'd try linux, but my family hardly knows how to use windows =P

I'd have to agree with both Compact-mac and Namronia....the 3xxx builds were still mostly stable and didn't consume much memory, which is what you're going to need with only 380MB. If you decide to go up to any of the 4xxx builds, expect severe lag up as in idle, these builds tend to take up 400MB or more.
