Re: Poll : Migrating to Vista ? What version and Why ?Mar 23rd, 2007
I have never burned a recovery disk, I suspect it will basically copy the contents of the hidden partion on to the cd allowing you to boot the disc and do a system wipe.
Despite their 'minimum' claims, you pretty much have to have a dual-core, 256mB video card, 2 gigs of RAM and a buttload of hard drive space for it to run even reasonably well.
one of the reason for starting this thread was to analyze the usablity of given tool(in given case - Vista) and if pricing/ecnonomics had anything to do with choice, since MS is already a big player. What are the motivating factors - Functionality, Price, or other. Later on that.
hmm... Considering Apple's OS X, based on FreeBSD - considering FreeBSD does use considerable GNU code - Dunno what to say
