I took the plunge today and considering it’s now 11pm-ish, i’m still installing stuff on Vista - God damn it’s slow!
The experience in Vista doesn’t seem too bad though, with nice clean graphics (Aero doesn’t work - not that it’d be a good idea on this spec anyway…), and suprisingly speedy performance. I managed to successfully grab all of the patches from http://uk.asus.com and after a few hours it was all good. Still have more to go though!
One amusing problem that keeps occurring is that the touch screen stops working - no doubt driver related.
Overall though things seem to be working better - the Bluetooth was picked up straight away; the wireless seems more reliable, and all the buttons work.
It still says “configuring updates” as we speak though. Lame.
