My Vista Project III


I am making some progress with the customization and fixes on this machine. The customization is all due to the gadgets the I downloaded to the right toolbar which are very useful for me, there are some which I love and some which are cool. The machine itself is very smooth and I had a bad image of how Vista was going to be but Microsoft did put some decent effort into this program. There are still some compatibility issues that they need to work out so if you don’t need to change then you are better off waiting a little while longer, this isn’t my main machine so I don’t have to depend on it for critical tasks, I am enjoying the interface and finding out the new ways to modify it. It feels like a similar but in a different way.

I solved the sound card issue by downloading the Vista driver for RealTek AC655 and it operated smoothly after the driver update and without restarting.

The only pending issue is the ethernet card, it seems that Vista is having some driver issues with Vista products so it seems I have to wait. For right now I’m satisfied with the use of the Linksys G-Wireless adapter.
