Priyan’s done it, Adam’s done it, people haven’t complained about it too much, so I took the plunge and upgraded both my operating systems within a week of each other. Vista Mark 2 is ticking away happily on my computer and after a week I have to say I quite like it. I took advantage of Microsoft’s £30 student offer to get the 64-bit Pro version (normally £160) and it installed very easily.
I also switched to 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10, just for a bit of fun, and could recommend that too. Basically, if you’ve got a spare Sunday afternoon, why not mess around with a computer?
